    I am beginning my search for hatching eggs again! I would like to try and avoid
    shipping eggs this year and hope to find local suppliers. So far this is what I
    am looking for, if you will have some please let me know!
    -Silkies - any color
    -serma - any color
    -bantam and standard cochin - any color
    -turkey - any breed
    -bantam and standard brahma - any color
    -open to other standard breeds that are good in egg production

    Oh I am looking in the winston, greensboro area, may consider traveling farther
    if needed!

    -Thanks
    Christina

    Hey there! If you are looking for breeds that are consistent layers, I would suggest that you get some standard egg layers such as RIR, BR, BO, etc. You can add other breeds for variety, but don't rely on a bunch of silkies and cochins to give you a lot of eggs. They just go broody too often!

    Quote:I have to make sure i throw more large breeds in my mix this year. My husband LOVES bantams, my eggs customers do not! I need to make sure that I stay balanced with bitty chickens and big ones!

    We're in Mt Airy. We go to a farmers market in Winston-Salem every Saturday morning. We sell table eggs at the market, but I would be willing to bring hatching eggs for you.

    In 2-3 weeks, I'll have the following hatching eggs available.

    Red Sexlink - RIR (private stock) X Delaware hens (hatchery stock)
    Black Sexlink - RIR (private stock) X Barred Rock hens (hatchery stock)
    Delaware - roo & hens are hatchery stock
    EE - Black Ameraucana (private stock) X EEs hens (hatchery stock and private stock)

    I have to move some roos and hens around, then in 4 weeks I'll have available

    RIR - private stock
    Black Australorp - private stock
