    You can buy eggs in as small of an amount as 3 at mypetchicken, but the shipping is pretty high.

    Hello! You can buy them on e-bay, and hatcheries will sell you fertilized eggs too. If there is a local farmer near you with chickens, I'll bet he/she would give or sell you a few......

    I deal with the Meyer Hatchery in Polk Ohio. I know they sell hatching eggs......

    Good luck!

    you can look thru the hatching eggs auction forum ... if you see a breed you want... contact the seller and tell them what you want and work it out...

    check craigslist in your area. Just go to the farm and garden section on search for hatching eggs. I'm sure you'll find something!

    Quote:Sorry, I can't help you out with those breeds. I'm sure someone can you help out though. We have a tons of breeders here that do have those. Look on the Swap thread, I can't remember right off hand, but someone has RIR and another has barred rock.

    Try a farmers market. You'll find lot's of fertilized eggs there. Just eat the extra nine.
