    I lost my rooster on DEC 28 to a neighbors dog, i saved what eggs i had left (8) and one of my hens went broody on them. she gave up with only a few days left til hatch and i am devastated. with the addition of a larger coop i really need some fettered friends to fill the coop and the void in my heart. i will be buying a incubator from my local TSC to raise more chicks but i no longer have any fetal eggs. I'm thinking about buying some barred rocks but Ive never purchased hatching eggs before and i need some direction on who to buy from. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    I've found two folks locally selling fertile eating eggs for $2.50 and $3 a dozen. Turns out they both have closed flocks of Rhode Island Reds. The first are hatching at over 80% and I have just started a batch from the second seller so I can see how they do.
    No way you can beat that buying and shipping in hatching eggs. Ask around at your local feed stores or check local bulletin boards. I bet you can find fertile hatching eggs close to home for a great price.

    Buy from this website. Best place to buy. The people on here are honest about what they have and most people ship fantastically. This is also one of the few websites where you can buy purebreds, even rare purebreds.

    Welcome to BYC @wholeheart!
    This is a very old thread...but I think they meant here on the BYC websites selling forum https://www.backyardchickens.com/forums/chicken-hatching-eggs.36/
    Tho I doubt mailing eggs to Africa is an option.
    Maybe @Pork Pie Ken can give you some advice?

    Having the correct paperwork in order is necessary as airlines won't even allow eggs as hand luggage. Maybe ask local poultry breeders / importers how they go about things would work best :confused: sorry I can't be of any further help.
