    We have a wonderful pen of a Splash Marans rooster over both Black Copper Marans and Splash Marans.
    This shipment will ship Monday, January 10, 2010, if payment is received by 12 noon EST, unless there is any change in laying patterns, which is not anticipated at this point.. If all the ladies lay equally, you should expect roughly 75% blue copper marans and 25% Splash Marans.

    Please remember that black x splash = 100% blue
    While splash x splash = 100% splash

    Our splash hen is nicely marked and the rooster is just spectacular as you will see in his photo.

    This Pen represents Bev Davis and Wade Jeane and also our own Garry farm lineage. All of the flock are feathered and produce feathered babies. Egg coloring has been wonderful. Color will be slightly lighter on some than others depending on where they are in their laying cycles.

    For this auction, we are only able to accept paypal and ship only within the continental US states and Alaska. Pickups at our farm are also allowed.

    If you don't want to purchase online, but purchase directly from our farm, please pm and we'll be glad to do that as well. We accept paypal and money orders for direct purchases, not part of this auction. Money orders must be received prior to shipping orders. Pickups from our farm are welcomed and scheduled.

    For this auction, you will receive a minimum of 10 eggs and more if they are available the day of shipping.

    We are very care about selecting, carefully packing, packing materials, priority shipping and confirmation delivery. If extra(s) are available at the time of shipping, I'll include those as well. Normally shipping is computed based on your zip code and whether you want insurance or express mailing instead of our regular priority shipping with confirmation delivery which is our normal way of shipping. To make this easier for the winner at the close of the auction, we have a set shipping amount which represents priority mail and confirmation delivery. If you want insurance, please add $2 more if you win the auction. If you want xpress mail, please contact me before payment as it will be more. (Our costs may indeed exceed the amount, but for the convenience of paying for the auction at the close of the auction and our ability to get the eggs mailed to you the next day after payment we will supplement mailing costs. Please be aware that shipping has increased for for this year for "weighted" packages which ours represent. We only ship within the continental US (48 states) and to Alaska.

    We ship eggs the same way we would like to receive them. We bubble wrap each egg separately, putting in a regular box (not an egg carton) which is then cushioned and set in a larger box. These are not the prepaid priority boxes but we use the large boxes that can be ordered through USPS as the standard mailing box. Our mailing costs can often be higher than the prepaid boxes but we find that they arrive in better shape, so it's well worth the extra time, packing materials and shipping costs. Occasionally with a large order, we will use an even larger outside box. Even as carefully as we ship, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We do not guarantee the percentage of your hatch as the incubators temperature and humidity are very variable. We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible.

    We are a chemical free farm and farm full-time. We feed our animals with the best feed, sprouted grains, fresh grasses, treats from the garden and loving care. For more information about our farm, please visit our website http://www.thegarryfarm.webs.com/

    Thanks and have a blessed day. Nancy

    Stan, I'm sorry I should have included! These beautiful ladies have been laying now straight for almost three months so they are on the lighter end of their laying coloration.
    Thanks for asking for a picture....

    This picture shows a part of the eggs shipped last week. The flash went off and they lightened a bit through that. Again, please remember that they have been laying almost three months so it's considerably lighter than when they started. I'm pleased with the coloration of these after such a long period of laying! It's about time for them to renew their pigmentation of their eggs which happens on a cyclical basis.

    ...Thanks for your interest and have a blessed weekend and A Happy New Year!

    (I'll try to take another picture of eggs collected for THIS shipment but with all the farm activities today, I may not be able to post until tomorrow, IF I remember to go get batteries for that camera! Nancy)
