    I don't know since I live in Florida, you might want to call the stores and see. Why Trader Joe's eggs? Breeds?

    You might find someone around your neck of the woods that sells fertile eggs. Might be an option.

    Quote:I went there trying to get some and they didn't have any. We went to the one in Arlington Heights I think, IDR. Good luck! If you find them let me know!

    Trader Joes varies what they have available, and not all of them will carry the same things.

    I got fertile eggs from the refrigerator at the local organic co-op. You might try calling around, see if any of the health food stores have fertile eggs.

    I wouldn't mind sending you 4 dozen eggs for $20 + shipping;
    most the time, I only charge enough to get the right shipping boxes and packing and what not lol

    What does trader joe's sell anyways for eggs???

    I hatched a fertile egg from my local Safeway Grocery store a few years ago. You might have luck with fertile eggs from any store as long as they are relatively fresh.

    I think all the original posts about hatching from trader joe's fertile eggs came from CA. I had no luck finding a trader joe's that carries fertile eggs in my area.
