    Our Wheaten Marans are laying very well. My incubators are full and so we are offering these for sale!

    You will receive 10 Wheaten Marans hatching eggs and more if available the day of shipping. This flock is of Bev Davis/Buddy Henry lineage and now Garry farm lineage as well. Based on their laying patterns I do expect more but cannot guarantee it!

    Here's one of the pretty pullets from the original flock! No pullet eggs will be included however!!!!! My pullets are in a separate penned area.

    Here's a picture of the laying flock:

    I have been really pleased with the rich coloring of eggs in this flock...The hens have been laying now for many months and the coloring remains beautiful!

    We breed toward the anticipated standards in our flocks

    Payment and Shipping and Handling details:

    In order to mail these on Wednesday, February 9, 2011, we will need to receive paypal by 11:00 am EST on Wednesday, February 9,2011. Paypal address is:

    [email protected]

    If you are the winning bid, please send your paypal to us as soon as the auction ends and be sure that your paypal mailing address is current and if you want to pick up at the post office, please let me know via a pm your phone so I can put it on the box!

    If you want insurance, please send $18.70 not $16.70 for shipping as the insurance from USPS costs us $2.00 more. If for any reason you want us to add a heat pack to the package, it is an additional $2.00.

    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. Usually I compute the shipping based on your zip code and whether you want insurance or express mailing instead of our regular priority shipping with confirmation delivery but in order to get this package moving tomorrow, we are giving a FLAT rate on our shipping.

    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. After carefully preparing you package we drive your eggs to the Post Office, where our local post office sets the egg shipments to the side to protect them. They are then placed on the truck on the top of all the other boxes! 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://freewebs.com/thegarryfarm.webs.com/

    We are only able to accept paypal only for this auction and ship only within the US. Pickups at our farm are also allowed

    Happy Bidding...Thanks and have a blessed day. Nancy

    Some of you have asked about Egg Color. The Hens have been laying for over 4 months now and the color on the eggs is lighter than the eggs in the photo below which was taken about 7 weeks ago. Some of the eggs have lightened now and I'm sure you know that the Hens go through paint cycles. Please remember that I only hatch dark eggs....This means that this flock came from dark eggs which greatly enhances your opportunity to hatch dark egg layers as well. Because some of our photos are being "borrowed" and placed on other locations on the internet, I'm trying to identify as many as possible with our name before posting them.
    I hope this is clear enough for you to see.

    Thanks and have a blessed evening and Happy bidding!....I will be on and off the board and may not be answering many questions, 4 brand new babies will need bottles throughout the night and their mother needs tending as well. I will check back and answer your questions when I can! Nancy
