WE ARE NOW NPIP & AI TESTED KY-218 These can be picked up too. We are located 90 miles south of Lexington KY. shipping is priority mail. These are from our pen of Blue/Blue Splash Marans. Some are feathered some are not. You will get both. The lines are predominately Davis lines and were not achieved with Black Coppers. Coloring is very beautiful on these chicks we are getting. The pics below are some of the coloring you can expect to receive. They are full siblings to the ones that you will pick up. The adult birds are of the parents. We have been getting more Blues too in each hatch and most recently have had some cuckoo throw backs! Which I am very excited about as they have been feather shanked too! Take advantage of the discounted price. They have been selling for much more. Our birds are laying like crazy! Soon the Blue hens will be taken out of this pen as we have a couple of Blue roos almost of age. We have a French Blue Splash Roo in with 2 Blue Splash and 3 French Blue hens. The eggs are not as dark as the black coppers and we are working on that with these birds. Our stock came from Prather Poultry. PAYMENT IS PAYPAL ONLY, NO ECHECKS. PAYMENT IS DUE 24 HOURS AFTER AUCTION ENDS. ANY DELAYS WILL EFFECT YOUR HATCH RATE. THESE EGGS COLLECTED FOR THIS AUCTION WILL BE SENT. IF YOU CANNOT PAY FOR THEM PLEASE DO NOT BID. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE TO YOUR HATCH RATE DUE TO POSTAL HANDLING OR YOUR INCUBATION METHODS. ROUGH HANDLING CAN KEEP YOUR EGG FROM DEVELOPING ALONG WITH YOUR INCUBATION METHOD. PLEASE UNDERSTAND HATCHING EGGS ARE A RISK. SOMETIMES YOU WILL GET A VERY GOOD HATCH, SOMETIMES A FEW WILL HATCH AND SOMETIMES NONE WILL HATCH. I HAVE BEEN HAVING A 95%-100% HATCH HERE AT HOME. SO THEY ARE FERTILE. THERE ARE MANY FACTORS THAT CAN HAPPEN WITH SHIPPED EGGS TO KEEP THEM FROM DEVELOPING. IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH THAT PLEASE DO NOT BID. I HAVE BOUGHT SEVERAL HATCHING EGGS AND HAD GREAT HATCHES AND NONE DEVELOP. I UNDERSTAND IT'S A RISK AND DID NOT ASK FOR REPLACEMENTS AS THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES. PLEASE READ FEEDBACK TO MORE RECENT FEEDBACK ON PAST AUCTIONS. I HAD STOPPED PUTTING AUCTIONS DUE TO FILLING CHICK ORDERS. I FELT I NEEDED TO ADD THIS AS THE LAST AUCTION, 5.7.11 WAS NEVER PAID FOR AND NO CONTACT. THOSE EGGS WENT TO WASTE. PLEASE PAY FOR YOUR EGGS WHEN THE AUCTION ENDS. THANKYOU!! AND HAPPY BIDDING! AGAIN THESE EGGS ARE NOT AS DARK AS BLACK COPPERS OR SOME OTHER BBS EGGS THAT HAVE USED BLACK COPPERS TO ACHIEVE THEM. OUR BIRDS WERE NOT CROSSED WITH BLACK COPPERS TO GET THE EGG COLOR. THEIR EGG COLOR IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. THE ORIGINAL BLUE SPLASH HENS ARE LAYING A VERY LIGHT EGG. THE RESULTING CHICKS FROM THESE CROSSES ARE JUST GETTING CLOSE TO LAYING AGE. SO WE WILL KNOW OF THEIR PROGRESS IN EGG COLOR WHEN THEY START LAYING SOON.
