    We are offering 10+ hatching eggs from our flock of Buff Laced, Gold Laced and Blue Laced Gold Brahmas. We are starting the bidding at 50.00 which does not include the $15.00 shipping and handling charge. Please bid by reply to this post. This auction will end tomorrow, February 24th, at 5:00 p.m. and payment must be made by Paypal to [email protected] within four (4) hours of the end of auction.

    Our Brahmas are from the well known Dan Powell lineage and are absolutely stunning despite the fact that they are still a work in progress. Brahmas in general are considered a utility bird for their edibility and generous egg laying and hardiness even during the winter months. The average weight of roosters is 11 pounds where the hen’s average weight is 8.5 pounds. They lay an average of 140 tinted eggs annually. Brahmas are calm, friendly birds that make good pets. They are a popular choice for families with children. They have been very easy to raise and make a rather quiet and beautiful flock.


    The distinct difference between the well know Light and Dark Brahmas and these are their beautiful feather plumage. Our flock consists of Buff Laced, Gold Laced and Blue Laced Gold Brahmas. The reason for our decision to cross the different color varieties did not come easily. The Buff Laced Brahma would have to be our favorite color and the one that Dan Powell was aiming for when he started this project, but after careful research, we discovered that in this stage of the project, breeding only Buff Laced Brahmas would result in 80% Buff Laced Brahmas and 20% Gold Laced Brahmas. It also results over time in "whiting out" of the Buff Laced Brahmas. In order to bring you beautiful birds with truer lacing, we have decided to continue using the other color varieties. As stated above, it is definitely a work in progress, but well worth the effort to continue such an endeavor.

    We currently have egg orders to fill in March and chick orders in April, so this may not be offered again until sometime after May. Fertility has already been tested this year. You can find more information at our website at www.taylorhobbyfarms.com or visit us on Facebook.


    Our hatching eggs are gathered twice daily and kept in a 55 degree egg cooler. They are turned three times daily until they are picked up, shipped, or put in our incubator. These hatching eggs will be anywhere from 1 to 4 days old.

    We ship hatching eggs USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation. We may ship your eggs using 1) a box within a box with the eggs being individually wrapped in the inside box and surrounded by shredded paper, (2) eggs in cartons wrapped in bubble wrap and surrounded by shredded paper or (3) by eggs wrapped individually with tissue, then bubble wrapped and surrounded by shredded paper and bubble wrap on the outer ends of the box. We use different methods depending upon the number of eggs ordered. Unfortunately, we have no control over what happens to the eggs once they leave our hands, i.e. rough handling, x-rays, poor incubator settings, temperature fluctuations, etc.


    $15.00 shipping and handling for all egg orders with no additional shipping charges thereafter if ordered for the same ship date...so if you would like to order more hatching eggs from our website for the same ship date, and you have checked availability with us, there will be no additional shipping charges if you win this auction. Your hatching eggs will ship on Monday, February 25th.


    [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]We are NPIP Certified, GA-1202, and have our birds tested for Avian Influenza, Thypoid and Pullorum.


    Thanks for looking and happy bidding![/FONT]
