    What is everyone's experience with ordering hatching eggs online? Where is a good place to get them? Thanks

    Closer is always better, the less time spent in the careless hands of postal employees the better. I ordered some off of ebay last spring. I'm in PA they came from OH and 4 out of 6 hatched. I have traded eggs thru the mail with someone also in PA always have good hatch rate with those. I have sent eggs to people in OK and CA and they hatched some chicks. Where you get them should depend on what you want/who has them and who is closest to you. IMO anyway.
