    I ordered 6 hatching eggs from Stoney Rock Farm in Hillsborough NC, and 8 arrived, well packaged and clean. Hopefully in 21 days I will see the fruits of their labor emerge from the incubator. If all goes well I will be ordering from them again. Thanks Stoney Rock Farm!:frow

    Thank you so much for sharing where you got them! I'm definitely ordering, but in the future. Once I've got a few hatches under my belt, I'll get some.

    I have two Swedish Flower hens. Both girls are sweet. :)

    I hope you enjoy the chicks!

    Just don't get your hopes up too high, shipped eggs don't always do well.

    here are two of mine to enjoy until you have your own (hatched in April; he's just started crowing, she's probably not going to lay till the spring) P1080816.JPG

    I understand, and any I get out of them, I will count it a blessing. Thanks for the tempering, maybe I need a little of that...

    I have also obtained eggs from Dragonfly farms(also in Hillsborough NC) and had good luck with her BLR Wyandottes. Kim Casadonte was real nice to me..
