Can do special hatchings of our breeds and many others - have many great connections for SQ/BQ eggs in a variety of breeds. Want just 5 chicks, healthy with no shipping losses? Get in touch with me, email is best.
By Request -
Heritage meat cockerel chicks, if we aren't sold out - $0.75ea, perfect for pastured poultry and backyard programs. The fastest maturing heritage breed, get the tenderness of a young bird with the flavor of a real chicken.
Capons, Dominique, Walrus and Sex-Links (Dominique cross), *possibly* Jersey Giants. Grow meat birds in town! Capons do not crow, can be grown longer and stay tender, make great adoptive mothers for chicks, and can be housed with hens. All these breeds will make excellent capons, with good feed conversion and rate of growth. We need to know at least 3 months in advance if you want these capons! They need time to incubate, hatch, grow to caponizing size (about 8 weeks) and then have some recovery time before the swap.
See post #62 for more information about WallTenter's birds....
Honey (several jars)
Plant starts, strawberries if they're on, etc.
1-2 bantam pullets. Would not mind Ameracaunas, Welsummers or other colored eggers. Will be flock fillers to keep the little roosters company while the show hens are separated out, so personality and health are more important than breed standard.
*These pens have blue roosters over blue barred hens, if a chick comes out splash it will be harder to see the dot on the head for the sex-linking. About 1/4 of the chicks will be splash.
Orpingtons - BBS all ages possibly and possibly hatching eggs
Couchin bantams all ages and possibly hatching eggs
Silkies white - possibly chicks
Easter Eggers - chicks, eggs, and possibly a roo
Cross Bantam roo (will be almost 2)

Orpingtons- Lav & Lav/split
Orpingtons - blue, black and splash looking for big and fluffy/show/breed quality
Jersey Giant - hens, pullets, chicks
Polish - chicks, hens, pullets ( just want a few to add to the property just think there super fun to look at)
Silkies - show/breeding quality
Hatching eggs (as long as the girls agree to lay that week) BBS, Lavender and Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons, Porcelain/mille fleur d'uccle, assorted polish from my projects (gold-red laced/crele/tolbunt)

Araucana LF(prefered) or BF, eggs, chicks, pullets or hens ( lots of color please! no more black or white hens,
don't care if they are tufted or smooth (prefer smooth) but must be rumpless and pet quality is fine!)
Wheaten/blue wheaten LF Ameraucana eggs, chicks, pullets/hens (want nice quality but don't have to be SQ)
1-2 nice SQ silkie pullets/hens either Buff or Partridge or Blue partridge.
Also fun colored project silkie eggs, chicks, pullet/hen like calico, porcelain, salmon or.....almost any really.

Tam'ra of Rainbow Vortex -
Planning to bring:
Chicken salad bars (chicken-proof planters)
Herb/veggie starts for chickens and humans
Possibly some Aloha project chicks and/or hatching eggs (see link for pics and detailshttp://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=600281)
Feather crafts (masks, hair and hat adornments)
Feathers (especially pheasant)
frozen (or fresh) pelts and feet to use for crafts (any animal, I am not picky!)
raw wool (I just started working with and sharing my wool from the fall swap and I doubt it will last till spring!)
Turkeys? (nothing white, but I am open to other colors)
Possibly buff rock hens/pullets
Possibly spotted LF chickens to add to my Alohas
- Blue and Black Bantam Plymouth Rock hatching eggs/chicks/started birds (it all depends on what I can hatch from now until swap time.)
- Possibly bringing some bantam Barnevelder cockerels (hopefully I will be rid of them by then though!)
- small-medium pet crates
- BBS Bantam Plymouth Rock hatching eggs/chicks/adults
- Bantam Barnevelder chicks/pullets
- Some friendly bantam pullet for my brother to use for showmanship
-Red Wyandotte chicks
-Blue Wyandotte chicks
-Buff Laced Wyandotte chicks
-Blue Laced Red Wyandotte chicks
-Light Brahma chicks
My Little Sister's Farm -
At this time I know I will be bringing 1-3 10 hole metal nestboxes. 2 have the plastic bottoms and one of them is older and the wooden bottoms are long gone. Hopefully I will be bringing a small egg turner for a gqf styro incumbator with the turkey/goose inserts. Will also have a smattering of new egg cartons depending on what we decide to use for market this year.
-Started pullets/cockerels (various breeds, will update exactly what breeds when I decide what breeds I want to get )
-Feeders/waterers to go in cages
-Serama pullets, cockerels, and chicks
-Homemade salt & sugar body scrubs
-Jewelry (made by my mom)
So, I have an update. I have some bantam cochin eggs coming to me tomorrow in a variety of colors from really nice birds (mottled, blue mottled, splash, blue, lemon blue, silver laced, calico/mille, lavender-black split). Don't know what will hatch, but I will most likely not be able to keep them all. They'll be about 2 months old come time for the swap so if anyone is interested I can keep you updated on which colors/sexes hatch.
Also, if anyone is interested I have a pair of 8-week-old seramas that I'm trying to give away. The cockerel is the dominant one in the bunch and he's sweet enough when you have him alone (he still likes to fall asleep in my hand) but he just picks on the others when they're together. The pullet he's bonded to is the only one who dishes it back out to him... it's actually pretty funny. He just kind of melts in front of her. I just don't have the room to keep them in a separate cage. All my other babies seem to get along just fine (even with the younger ones). If you have questions or want to see pics, just pm me!
-feeders & waters
-MAYBE some cochins... I really want some but am not sure if I will have space.
P.S. Tam'ra I would be interested in going south for a swap!
*This is my grandma's self-run business she started 4 years ago at age 81--she's licensed and legit! Her jams (freezer-style) sell at Market of Choice stores in our area and are used at Dickie Jo's on their pb&j sandwiches. I'll for sure bring strawberry because it's everyone's favorite, but she also makes grape, peach, and apple butter. Yes, we will be sampling it

* Brimmed Beanies $5-10 assorted colors. can do color requests up to 2 weeks before swap.
I have two Cockatiels that I would like to re-home before the swap, if possible.
Male Gray Cockatiel about 3 yo?, I adopted him about a year and a half ago ~ Cuckoo is a Pretty Bird ~ whistles, talks, loves attention (talking to, not handling) and live jam sessions (he will make lots of happy sounds, which isn't always appreciated by all, but he has a lot of fun!). He prefers not to share really close quarters with other birds. He likes to have his space, and when he has that he seems to get along just fine with others. He has been housed with another cockatiel, and a pair of budgies and white doves. Cuckoo is a hand fed bird that has not been handled in awhile, but where he used to live he had free flight times and he always came back to his cage. He is very personable, and looking for a good home to take him in.
Male Lutino/White Cockatiel ~ Lilu ~ hatched spring 2011, not hand fed, and handled very little, bought as a companion for Cuckoo. Very pretty bird, hoped it was a she, but is now displaying his masculine voice and moves,, which would explain why Cuckoo hasn't bonded with him. Lilu likes to be talked to and comes up to the cage front to listen. He does not like to be handled, and we don't push him. Paid $65 for him, and if I could re-home him for $25 that would be awesome.
There is a Triple Roof Parakeet Cage by Prevue, Dimensions: 26" L x 14" D x 22 ½" wire spacing. Used gently approx. Best Offer ONLY AFTER Birds have been re-homed. I will use this cage to bring them to the swap if I still have them.
For sure I'll have silkie chicks. I have some CJ exotic chicks due to hatch in a couple of days, in addition to some from other breeders that I've already hatched. I will likely have some dark brahma chicks. They were hatched in December/January. I am looking for Salmon Favorelle eggs or started birds, LF. Also looking for Blue Laced Red Wyandottes and Lavender Ameraucanas, from eggs to adults. I can bring some black australorp and buff orpington hens. They will be just barely 2 years old and are laying great. They are hatchery stock, excellent layers that have been allowed to rest over winter. They have picked up laying again and I'm getting nearly an egg a day per bird.
Nearly forgot, I will likely have some brown chinese goslings. They would be about 7 weeks old at the time of the swap.
Small carriers for shows, etc.,
Tons of small aquariums,stands and supplies
Parrot toys and supplies and maybe the two pairs of amazons and two Jardine's
A couple of POL barnevelder (LF)sets, bantam brahma layer/breeder groups, Ameraucana, Jersey Giant, and, of course, a few darling well-bred silkies.
I want: jams, jellies, cheescake, honey (esp blueberry)

Lady of McCamley -
WANT: A faithfully broody hen (the one you want to get rid of...the one that's sweet but driving you nuts as she wants to brood eggs and mother chicks)...She will have a good home and lots of love.
...or a Chochin pullet/chick, or another breed you'd highly recommend as a "natural" frequent brooder.
May bring/swap out (if anyone is interested) my 3 feed store quality buffs...they are 1 year as of this mid-February...so 15 months by Swap. Lay well for Buffs (coming off of winter rest)..ok in temperament, but not super sweet...the sometimes broody one is fairly sweet...We, and our friends who we sell to, really like the big brown eggs from the Barred and Sex Links rather than the lighter Buff eggs.
Let me know if you would like to arrange a pre-purchase
