obtaining hatching eggs
Hi, Could you give me a list of local providers from whom I can buy some fertile chicken eggs or baby chicks? I live in Allegheny county (zip code 15234). Thank you. John

Tractor supply in spring has chick sales. Coordinate with them regarding when they will offer the next cycle. Otherwise, mail order may be your best bet. Two to try:
Hoffman Hatchery: www.hoffmanhatchery.com
Reich Poultry: http://www.reichspoultryfarm.com/
Ideal hatchery: http://www.idealpoultry.com/
Be advised to read carefully all ordering info as their may be minimum numbers and limited seasons to ship on some particular breeds of chickens. Hatcheries that are NPIP certified are a good bet.
