    I'll take free chicken eggs of any breed.

    If you are wanting to practice shipping i'll be your "guinea pig" and give you a full report and frequent updates. it would be a good way to establish your future shipping and packaging works. i won't give a bad review no matter what since i'm gaining here but will give a great one if your method works. i've seen others advertise wanting someone to test their eggs.

    i'm just throwing this out there in case a person would like to see if their packaging job and means of sending works.

    PM me to make sure i see reply.

    I'm thinking about this. My girls are not laying great right now - - -

    Do you care if they are barnyard mixes ? ?

    I think shipping costs are high enough that people can't afford to send totally free eggs.....at least I can't.

    hey, i'm advertising here. just kidding.

    i've seen people on the "sell" forum indicating they will give away free eggs to anyone who wants to test their hatch rate after shipping them. just to check that their future customers are getting hatch-able eggs. pretty much this: if you are getting a 90% hatch rate and are ready to sell. but you'd like to run them through the shipping process to make sure it is still 90%, then i'll receive, hatch them and give full report of the hatch.

    some huge advise on shipping, pay attention to how others ship them. not all carriers in all parts of the country are good at shipping live goods.

    any type of breed is cool.

    I've got some in the incubator to test fertility of my new roos. After this hatch, I may be interested in your offer. May I ask...why no interest in any particular breed?

    Thanks...

    Yes. We enjoy hatching eggs during the dreary winter months.
