    Check out mypetchicken.com they have hatching eggs and some rare breeds but also the everyday breeds we all love. They are in Connecticut. They stock is sold out for most breeds until May it looks like. I bought a dozen and they are in the incubator right now.

    I spent $100 at the farm store. It is a Little Giant incubator- made out of styrofoam with a heating unit and I splurged on the automatic egg turner. You can always turn them by hand but you have to remember to do it. You can also make an incubator with lots of info here on BYC or on YouTube. I was hoping to put them under a broody hen but my girls just did not adhere to this schedule. My eggs have yet to hatch but candling them I can see that they are growing. Also, scroll down on the BYC homepage and you will find lots of fertilized eggs either being auctioned or sold. Good luck.

    If you go to Craig's list. And see if anyone has chickens for sale chances are they have fertile eggs. It's a chance but that's how a friend got hers. Also if you see someone who has eggs to sell, they will most likely have fertile eggs also. Ask around. Try your local organic store or farmers market
