    I am wanting to purchase hatching eggs for my incubator in or near Washington state. I live in Yakima, WA. I want to get Delaware and Rhode island red eggs. Want to purchase around (60) of each. Incubator holds (123). Want to buy the eggs in late February or March. Anyone know of Delaware's and Rhode island reds near me please update thread. I have Delaware and Rhode island reds now but no rooster and don't want cross breeds. Thanks a bunch.

    I live south of Yakima and I was wondering too if there was anyone around that did eggs or chicks other then getting them from Coastal or Blehyl's during chick days. Supposed to be someone in Toppenish that does speckled sussex, and another that does marans I haven't been able to locate either.

    Barons farms on west wapato road I think have RIR, haven't gotten close enough to see, but they sell their eggs not totally sure for hatching just eating. You may be able to call them and find out for sure. They man I spoke to before we got our birds was very nice and informative. Biosecurity was very obvious on the property too. I would give them a call at least you could find out if anything where they may have gotten their birds.

    Sounds good, I'll be able to do at least (120) in my incubator. I could use a nice Rhode Island red rooster to go with my Rhode island hens and also use him with my Delawares and hatch some sex links. Hoping to hve incubator ready in about two weeks. did see some rhode island roosters on Craigslist.
