Sources of Fertile Eggs

There are many sources of fertile eggs. Some of these sources are convenient and affordable, but egg quality and fertility can be a problem.

One source of fertile eggs is Texas A&M University. This source will ship small quantities of fertile eggs for a reasonable charge. Prices and other information are subject to change.

Poultry Science Teaching, Research, and Extension Center Texas A&M University College Station, Texas 77843-2472 Telephone: (409)845-4367 Costs: $3.00 per dozen fertile chicken eggs $1.00 packaging charge per order plus shipping.

Shipping charges vary according to the number of eggs ordered and the distance from shipping point. Eggs are shipped by bus and usually arrive the day after shipment. Shipping charges are usually $5.00 to $10.00 for the average order. When ordering, say that you want to buy fertile chicken eggs for a school embryo project. Specify the number of eggs you want to buy, your shipping address, your billing address, and when you would like the eggs shipped. You will be billed at the end of the month.
