My son is starting in 4h this year and that means he wants to show chickens, ducks, etc. I haven't had any luck with the duck eggs being out of season. So now I am looking for chicken eggs. He wants to show and I want to breed so we are looking for either of the two breeds listed. For the Cochins any accepted color is fine. For the sebrights we are only interested in gold and silver laced. I know that there are a lot of auctions on here for Cochin eggs but being a stay at home mom I am not able to justify to my fiance spending that much money on eggs. He will be laid off for the winter so every penny saved counts. So even if there is someone out there with hatchery stock that would be willing to let some hatching eggs go for dirt cheap that would work. I would prefer to buy a dozen and can't spend more than $15 with shipping and that is pushing it. I make $40 a month helping out at a local auction house. I got lucky this month w/ all the extra goodies the animals have been grabbing out of the garden I have a little left over to buy eggs. I tried an add on craigslist local but no one seems to want to sell any, at least for reasonable prices someone wanted $20 a dozen for hatchery stock and he wouldn't give let me even see pictures of his flock.
