    I just got my first bator...and Ladybug4ut1 is testing it to make sure it is in good working condition.

    She warned me not to get expensive eggs to run thru it the first time.

    Does anyone have any "less expensive" eggs that i can try?

    Breed is really not important.

    I have 2 dozen barred rock and barred cross eggs ready to ship tomorrow. They'll be about half pure barred rocks. Some of the hens are easter eggers, so there's a chance of green egg layers. I've had excellent fertility on them. These are large fowl. $16 shipped. If you're interested PM me.

    You might also check your local Craigslist and feed stores. There's one store near me that sells chickens, and will gather fertile eggs from their pens. That's definitely cheaper than having eggs shipped, if you don't care what kind of chicks they are and are just looking to test the incubator.

    If you have a food coop that mixes their own feed - be sure and ask the owner. Our food coop is still selling baby birds and the owner would gladly sell eggs as well.

    If you cannot find locally, please feel free to contact me and I'll see what I can do on a mixed farm egg price.

    Hope this helps and have a blessed day....

    ty for all your offers. i'm having a TON of problems with this stupid bator (like variations of temp every hour from 95-101) and cant seem to get the stupid thing stabilized....so there will be test #2 with a new incubator.
