    Where can I buy fertile chick/quail eggs for hatching? I don't need any specific breed just something not too expensive.

    Thanks

    Here in our auction area, ebay, where I live I even see them offered on Craigslist. Also seek out breeders here local or else where. Good Luck

    Yes Ebay has a very large section for hatching eggs with just about what ever you would like. To get there go to Categories-Business and Industrial-Agriculture-Poultry Supplies.
    I personally have not bought any eggs from Ebay yet, but I have saved several of my favorite sellers so when I get my bator built I can load it up. [​IMG]

    Here ebay and local. If you are wanting something inexpensive try to find some locally. Your hatch rate will be much better with local eggs and you don't have to pay shipping(though driving across town and back can equal shipping charges depending on what you drive). If you don't know of anyone around you to get eggs a feed and seed store is a good place to meet some as the people that work there are generally on a first name basis with the people who raise alot of chickens in the area.
