Only sure way to guarantee a certain number is to order chicks. :-)

I found your website and did a sort of mock order (did't actually purchase) for 6 of each and shipping came out to $17. I'm afraid that your chick prices are a bit over budget for me, but I can do 6 eggs of each breed with the expectation of getting at least 7 of each since you say you add at least 1 extra if you can? I don't think I will be able to order until the end of February, possibly later, so don't set any aside for me just yet ;).

 

Thanks for the down to earth estimate and fast reply, very much appreciated!

I'm 19 years old & am the semi-official Ranch Manager of our family ranch of 170+ ac. I manage about 28 cows, 4 goats, 1 breeding trio of rabbits, 1 horse, 1 LGD, & 13 chickens, although these numbers are likely to change often. My goal is to get this ranch up & running & to produce the highest quality animals possible, preferably top show quality, in a healthy, all or mostly organic environment.

I do have a pen but had lots of fertility issues with them last year. So I have pulled them from my list. If they are fertile when they resume laying then I will add them back in. smile.png

Hiya! I'm looking to purchase some blue silkie/ bantam pen mix hatching eggs, but I had a few questions before I place an order :D

1) When will you first ship eggs? It said that you  start shipping after New Years, which would be now, I jut wanted to make sure that this was true

2) How many days does shipping generally take?

3) Should we order on your website, or over pm on backyardchickens? I'm sure you've listed this, but I just missed it :D

Thanks for your time, and hopefully I'll be adding some silkies to my flock soon :D

Hello all, just posting to say I wanted to give Papa Brooder two thumbs up on his great communication and friendly service. I ordered a dozen rainbow layer mix and got lots of extras! The shipping was fast and all the eggs were packaged beautifully. I've candled them and all of the air cells (that I can see) are intact. I'm very pleased and think this is going to e a great hatch! Thanks again!  :thumbsup

Are your orpingtons English or American standard?

Hi @Papa Brooder!
I'd like to have your opinion for one of your Blue jubilee X Jubilee I hatched, Do you think he is getting good color?

Thank You!

sent you a PM, yes so far so good but very early to tell on the jubilees.  i would say around 8-10 months old you will have a better idea of his patterning.j  but they he will still change a lot between then and say 18-20 months old. :-)
