THIS IS A 48 HOUR AUCTION. THESE EGGS WILL BE READY TO SHIP ON SATURDAY. YOU WILL RECEIVE 10 + ANY EXTRAS AT THE TIME OF SHIPPING. THE HENS ARE REALLY LAYING AND I AM OUT OF ROOM!! These are first year layers. My Roo is pure Jean C1 lines and the hens are Jean/Presley. The hens have been consistently marked and the pullets I am getting are also very consistent. All of our breeding stock are feathered. They are laying nice dark eggs with the older hens lightening up as they have been laying since last summer. The pic of the eggs taken 9/7/10 and were not altered in any way. In fact the pic was WITH a flash. Those eggs have hatched and those chicks are now sold. The eggs are starting to lighten up but you are getting the genetics that are producing these dark eggs. Occasionally we get a clean legged chick. We have seen this with the 3rd and 4th generation. I cannot guarantee your hatch due to shipping/handling and incubation methods(electric or by hen). I will pack them very well, individually in bubble wrap. I will send my darkest eggs at the time of shipping. Shipping will be USPS priority and will be shipped out after cleared payment has been received. Payment is expected immediately after close of auction and payment is by Paypal only, NO ECHECKS. If I don't answer your questions right away please EMAIL me. my paypal is [email protected] you can also email me directly there. ALL my breeding pen birds have feathered legs. I have added some new pics taken this last week 2/9/11 of some of our birds. It was dusk but it shows the copper coloring on some of our hens better. I will be taking more pics soon in better lighting.
