    Trader Joe's is one of the most commonly used ones. Whole foods. I think a lot of health food stores sell them.

    Your best bet is to look for a healthfood store. If the store doesn't know have them ask the supplier. Most of the eggs I've hatched were headed to a local health food store. If it is a small store with a local supplier maybe they could get you some unwashed eggs to hatch.

    Trader Joe's on the west coast sells fertile eggs. I hatch some of their eggs but I picked them up while on vacation. My hatch rate was low ,7 chicks out of 4 dz eggs, due to travel, time in a cooler, and everything else they went through before I got them.
