    The auction is for 10+ of our BBS Orpington eggs but we always send extras! [​IMG]

    Our Orpingtons are absolutely huge. Our girls are big, very fluffy and look like they have on big skirts. We purchased our original Orpingtons from show stock from Dick Horstman, and big beautiful Orpingtons from James May . We are extremely please with the quality from both lines. I guess it could go unsaid that these birds are very easily confined because the are too heavy to fly. They are friendly and curious birds and are absolutely beautiful! We are running our Splash rooster with our Blue, Black and Splash hens so your results should be Blue and Splash chicks.

    Because of the delicate time frame of hatching eggs we accept PayPal online payments only to [email protected] (no E-checks please). If you do not use PayPal and would still like to purchase eggs from us please contact us prior to bidding. Eggs will ship Monday after the sale. Given the season if the girls stop laying and we are unable to ship your eggs within a week you will be given the option to a full refund or to wait till the eggs are available.

    For other chicks that we offer or ordering Orpington chicks click on our website to the left. We ship chicks all winter long. [​IMG]

    Our eggs are very fertile and we have had an excellent hatch rate. However, due to the nature and handling of shipped eggs unfortunately we can not guarantee your hatch rate. We DO guarantee all eggs to be fresh and arrive in good condition and in a timely manor. We do everything on our end to try to help you have a successful hatch, the rest is up to the postal service......We ship priority mail with a confirmation number, but please know if it takes 7 days for your eggs to show up or if they are lost all together (yes, that happened twice before Christmas) It is completely out of our hands. Unfortunately we do not have a lot of options for shipping. Although rare, we just wanted you to know these thing can happen.

    Thanks for viewing and Good Luck! (If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to ask) We also ship chicks!

    Lucky for some other bidder that I do NOT have room in my incubator.. I would snatch these up in a second. FANTASTIC hatch rate.. 10 out of 12 chicks..
    Cutest little fuzzy butts... SEE (mixed with some of my other chicks) I am VERY happy with the eggs that were shipped from this seller.

    My Blue Orp eggs from the last auction just arrived---thank you again! they are lovely -- have them "resting" & ready to go in the incubator later on & hoping for a good hatch![​IMG]

    edit to add: none broken--- excellent packaging! & thank you for adding the heat pack in there & the extras & also for labeling the box "live embryos" -- my mail lady brought them here first -- very carefully!
