    This Auction is for 10 Fresh Eggs from my Large Fowl (standard size)Araucanas

    10 fresh hatching eggs from my Araucana pens. My pens have gorgeous rumpless and tufted roosters, the hens are all rumpless, some have tufts.

    Araucanas are beautiful, rumpless, tufted, South American breed of chicken that has ear tufts, no tail (rumpless), and lays a blue egg. If you are not familiar with this breed please research them before you bid.

    Buying hatching eggs is a gamble and Araucana eggs have their own hatching difficulties. Please only bid if you can afford to take the risk and possibility that none will hatch. Araucanas have a lower fertility rate then many other breeds. Araucanas don’t breed true to the APA standards so I cannot guarantee color of eggs or color of chicks. Or that they will all be tufted or rumpless and it is possible you will get some with stray tail feathers or even tails. If after all of this you would still love the challenges of this breed like I do, please bid and have the chance of owning some truly beautiful birds.

    I pack as safe and secure as possible but I cannot guarantee that they will survive any shipping mishaps or be responsible for shipping / handling or incubation conditions so I cannot guarantee that ANY will hatch, although I always send extras to help give you a better chance of hatching some chicks. I guarantee you will receive 10 unbroken eggs. I include extras, but if you have less then 10 unbroken eggs please let me know. Do not leave eggs sitting in a mailbox that could overheat or freeze.

    Because eggs are time sensitive, please pay immediately after the auction ends. I do accept PayPal at [email protected] If you pay with an E Check they usually take 3-4 business days to clear. If you want to pay with a money order, please let me know and I will send you my address.

    I only ship eggs to lower 48 states, no international shipping

    Here is a pic of my eggs. I don't think it will be true to color since everybody’s monitor is set differently. I don't have "robin blue" eggs. They are not olive either. They fall some where in between. On my computer the uploaded picture is pretty true to color. On my husbands across the room the color is much more vibrant then they really are.

    Wynette, Thank you. I guess it could sound very negative but I want the bidder to know the risks. I love this breed, I love the challenges and the accomplishments when I have a beautiful outcome.

    Someone bought some from eggs from me and when a black one hatched they said it looks like Uncle Fester. I had to agree!
