    I want to buy fertile eggs and people keep telling me that they will be selling them again once the breeding season starts, when is this ?!

    Thankyou!

    I've only had chickens for about a year, but my rooster thinks its always breeding season. I know there's fertilized eggs posted on Craigslist in Indiana if you want to look on there and see if there's some in your area

    Technically "breeding season" doesn't stop-but in the cold winter months fertility often drops. So it may be a matter of just wanting for warmer weather and fertility to come back up.
