    I just got a new incubator and want to know where to buy fertile eggs?? I am really liking French Wheaton Marans and Welsummer Chickens. Can anyone tell me the best place to find eggs?
    Thanks!!

    I don't know if you are in the Ozarks of Arkansas or Missouri, but I would start by visiting both of those threads in the "Where am I where are you section"...
    Then I'd visit the hatching eggs section to see what is available.

    I've never had trouble finding hatching eggs here on BYC and have been VERY happy with all of the breeders that I have purchased eggs from.

    There is also a place here on the forum where you can enter your wishes in a WTB (want to buy) post.

    Good luck.

    BYC is really great! Although, I will warn you, we are enablers here. We are always encouraging more and more chickens!!

    Good luck with your search for eggs. I would recommend trying to purchase eggs locally before ordering eggs that need to be shipped. Shipped eggs are risky due to post office handling.

    I love wheaten marans and welsummers!! I would like to add both to my backyard flock. Good choices!!
