French Black Copper Marans Hatching Eggs for Sale

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Ready to ship tomorrow (Tuesday - Feb. 8th) - One dozen, plus a couple of extras, French Black Copper hatching eggs.  These are from the same birds whose eggs won both the Ohio National and Wisconsin National APA Marans egg shows.  I have my FBCMs divided into two groups right now.  What I call the "Best" and "The Rest".  These are from The Rest, who actually lay the darkest eggs.  The Rest  include about 3 dozen birds.  There may be a roo with too much red in breast and females with too much copper in hackles; along with roos and hens who have too little color; an occasional brown vent fluff; or white wing feather; or dark eyes.  In other words, they didn't make the cut into my "Best" pen which are all birds who are APA conforming and have no "faults".  I sell my "Best" bird's eggs at $70 per dozen off my website (and $60 on BYC) and am offering "The Rest" at half price.  Paypal is monique@edgar2.com.  The dozen eggs pictured can go out tomorrow (Tues. or Wed.)  I should have another dozen for shipping early the next week.  I have waiting lists for my Best eggs and waiting lists for my Olive Eggs but no waiting list for my regular dark layers.

Hi Ruth,

I'm on your waiting list for eggs from your 'best" group, but I don't mind having these instead if you have a long list and would rather sell these to me instead. I was deciding between breeding Marans and having Dorkings on the side, or vise versa, and I've pretty much decided on breeding the Dorkings instead. Which means I just want the Marans for the dark eggs and not the next generation of chickens.

Soooo, I'll leave it up to you whether you sell me these or the others. big_smile

Hi Karen - you are only second on my list for the "Best" eggs.  They have started laying but only a few a day so it will still be about 2-3 weeks before I fill your order.  If you want, I can send you two dozen eggs which include these and the ones I'm getting out of the "Best" pen - in other words, a couple of combo dozens.  "The Rest" are laying more per day than the "Best" right now but that can change daily.  It's still freezing here off and on so they are slow getting up to speed.

Just let me know.

Monique

Ruth,

Oh, that's not long to wait... in fact it is perfect, as my most reliable incubator is getting filled in the next day or 2, and then by the time I get your eggs the others will be ready for lockdown in the new hatcher (that just came in the mail today!) wee


Your eggs and birds are so beautiful that they get my best incubator! love
Yours were the prettiest BC Marans I found anywhere! thumbsup

I'll just stay with my original order. (I've ordered too many eggs this year already!)

Monique - would you be able to ship some out the week of 28 February?  From your "rest" flock?

Casey, mom to five kiddos, plus horses/ponies/mules, dogs, cats, goats, a lizard, fish, frogs, turtles, a tortoise, and, of course, CHICKENS.  Oh, and ducks.  Working on practicing "sustainable microfarming."

Not all who wander are lost.

Yes, I can certainly do that.  Paypal is monique@edgar2.com.  Just specify exactly what date you want me to ship them and I'll be happy to do.

Thanks.

Monique

I forgot to mention that my pure Blue Copper Marans roo is also in my "Rest" pen so there's always a possibility you could get a "Blue Copper".  Here's his picture when he was just a baby.  The other roos were kicking his butt (notice the missing point on his comb).  He's such a big ninny baby even now that I can't let him roam with the big roos so he's in my pure BCM "Rest" pen.  I'm hoping to get some blue coppers myself:
