Description: 18+ Blue double laced Barnevelder project eggs. Very rare color of Barnevelder! These eggs are by a Blue project roo (75% Barnevelder/ 25% BLR Wyandotte) over pure-bred Barnevelder hens. The resulting chicks will hatch out 50% Blue and 50% black. The chicks will be 3rd generation with about 87% Barnevelder blood. These birds are not imported. This is a project that I've been working with since 2009 and have made much progress in color and type. I still consider my "Blues" a project line and further selection and breeding will be needed to continue improving the line towards Breed Standards including egg color, type, and lacing.
The girls are laying very well and I increased the amount of eggs to at least 18 eggs.
UPDATE: LAST AUCTION until possibly Fall 2012. I will soon be switching out roos and hatching for myself.
See "my chicken page" for more info and pics here:
and more about my blue project here:
I do not guarantee hatching due to issues regarding shipping or incubation. I do my best to provide the best quality eggs possible and pack with great care. Eggs will be wrapped in tissue or paper towels and bubble wrapped individually. The eggs are then wrapped in more bubble wrap and surrounded with packing peanuts. I have had good success shipping eggs from CA to Maine, Florida and other states. I am not NPIP at this time, but have a closed flock (no trades, shows, new stock) with no known illnesses in my flock. Fertility is near 100% and hatch rates have been good even with shipped eggs.
