Here is what I have to offer in pure breeds:

 

Blue Andalusians - Black Roosters over Blue, Black and Splash hens

Blue Cochins - All blue

Splash Sumatras - All splash 

 

I also have some mixes for the adventurous:  Sumatra x EE and Sumatra x Cuckoo Maran (Sumatra roos over the hens)

 

If anyone is interested, just let me know.  I love to add new breeds and colors to the farm and am having too much fun with my incubators.

Mille Fleur Leghorns (a few as I'm hatching for my own flock now)

Silver Penciled plymouth rocks - around 95% fertility they are laying machines, almost daily the 6 girls are laying

Coronation Sussex - I have to collect for karen but after that I'll have some (fertility will be spotty as I just added to new girls to the pen yesterday)

Mille Fleur Leghorns 7

Silver penciled plymouth rocks 10

I didn't even think about listing the chicks available... I will, if all goes as hoped and desired, have 10 each of the Cochin and Andalusian babies popping out on Tuesday. Their success rate has been wonderful in the last two hatches so I am optimistic. Fingers crossed for here and yours too Cheryl.

Fun Idea!  I like trading! 

 

Eggs To Trade: Splash Marans eggs (not many) or Splash X Wheaten AM = Olive Egger F1

 

I May Have: Golden Cuckoo Marans and/or Blue Copper Marans new chicks. (Inoculated for Marek's)

 

Other to Trade: Dry Creek Zinfandel : some of you have had it at previous picnics/parties!

 

Will take in Trade: Homemade salsa or hot pepper jelly!  Other homemade yummy stuff!

 

Want from list so far: Hmmm... I am picking up my other new chicks right after class, so a few new chicks would be interesting!  I would swap a bottle of Zin for the three Coronation Sussex chicks, Cheryl!  (Inoculated for Marek's--I know you do this as your standard.)

 

Let me know.  cool.png

Oooh, I just happen to have some major yummy hot pepper jelly and some pomegranate jelly I made in December. The hot pepper jelly is the bomb over cream cheese and crackers. Would love Marans chicks or eggs if no chicks..

Cheryl, I didn't think outside of chickens for trading. I have my jellies too.

I have some questions about Mareks. Is it a major problem in Sonoma Co? How do chickens catch it? I've heard that the vaccine is a live vaccine. I don't vaccinate my flock. So can my non-vaccinated birds catch Marek's from birds that are vaccinated or from the environment ie bringing them to the class?

Thanks,

Kim

Cheryl, I have one pair of white runner ducks. I can bring you some eggs. I don't know their lines - I bought them at the Stockton show, but the guy said his stock had won their variety there when I talked to him at Fresno.

I have some Silver Laced Wyandotte eggs which I can bring if anyone wants them. I have some older chicks of that breeding too, as well as Blue Laced Red Wyandotte chicks.
I lost my whole flock due to poor biosecurity. Read about it here: Infectious Laryngotracheitis, and learn from my mistakes so it doesn't happen to you.
