    not sure where to post this- couldn't find an actual Wanted section...

    Wanted someone to hatch eggs for me- located in the western part of IL- near the Macomb or Quincy areas. I have Breeder Q Cornish in both large and bantam sizes- and Show Quality Black Ameraucanas. Eggs won't be in large batches- maybe a dozen or two at a time-- right now I'm pretty stocked up with customers and shipping eggs out for others to hatch.

    I have two styro hobby incubators-- but they're not really the greatest things going- if you get the drift.. Both still air- and very variable in terms of maintaining a steady temp. We've tried the Silkie and half Silkie route- but just can't seem to make that work either-- They won't begin laying-- OR go broody.

    Will be willing to give you a percentage- tbd-- of the hatched out chicks as payment for your services-- would be a great way to build a Cornish operation (very hard to come by-- or add a quality show bird to your mix). or heck, I guess it would also be a good way to get some cheap meat birds...

    Let me know if you are interested:

    PM or email [email protected]

    Thank you,

    I'm in that local area. Have an R-Com. I've used it 2 times with great results. Novice at hatching, but devoted!
