Here's the link to my ad...http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/732514/wanted-8-10-hatching-eggs-for-broody-hen
I have a little Silkie who decided to put on her broody pants in the middle of winter and she won't quit! I can't get my intended breeding rooster and hens seperated for an extended time with the cold weather so I can't really use my own eggs. And there are some 'meatier' types I am really wanting to add to the flock so I thought I'd use this as a chance to start that.
The breeds I am thinking of are in the ad.
edit to add the ad post itself rather than just the link....
We are in need of some eggs for our little hen who decided to go broody on us. She can only cover about 8-10 and we are hoping to get a mix of breeds which we are wanting to use as base stock for next year. We aren't showing, our birds so SQ lineage not an issue.
What we would like is either 3 eggs each of 3 breeds, or 4 eggs of 2 breed type combo on the eggs if anyone has that available.
Cash/check for payment and it would be great if they were available in central or west central Pennsylvania and I could just pick them up instead of shipping... but I know that isn't too likely.
The breeds we would be interested in... Australorp, Plymouth Rock
Barred Rock, Chantecler
If you have any of these breeds and have eggs available in smaller lots can you contact me with info and requested price and shipping options.
