    I have 33 eggs I picked up over the weekend. They are from White Leghorns, Leghorn X black and red sex links, EEs, and BR X BO(resulting chicks are sex links). I could send them for $20, shipping included.

    Go to your local health food store and buy fertile free range eggs. They will hatch, most of the time.

    You can check on craigslist in your area, there should be lots of ads for hatching eggs. I have some mixed LF eggs, probably about a dozen. Shipping would be about $8-$10, depending on where you are. Dad sells them for eating for $1 a dozen [​IMG]

    ETA: Just saw you are in WA, so shipping would probably be a bit more, but I'd need your zip to know for sure. [​IMG]
