    For your consideration I have 12+ fertile hatching eggs from 3 VARIETIES of our sweet colorful birds listed! I have gathered so far on Thursday and Friday a total of 11 eggs already which are... 5 Black split to Lavender, 4 Black & Blue Barred and 2 Lemon Blue. I will gather and ship all I get from this weekend along with the 11 others and ship all on Monday the 7th which should be 18+ eggs. Please pay by Paypal as soon as auction is over to [email protected] I promise you will really enjoy watching the chicks bloom into colors as they grow! I'll also be happy to combine shipping if you win any of my other auctions. Still need to get the Black and Blue Barred off my camera but will try to get them posted tomorrow. Thank you!

    At Lucky Pickens Farm we’ve been raising poultry for over 50 years and strive to raise high quality birds for show or just for pets. All birds on our farm are blood tested Pullorum/Typhoid clean. We see that our birds are kept happy and healthy by giving them the very best feed and TLC daily! We strive to breed to the Standard of Perfection on each breed we raise and all are purebred and kept in individual breeding pens away from predators. We feed a high quality, high protein all natural game bird breeder pellet with vitamins and minerals in the water daily to insure high fertility. We also feed a little scratch grains, Calf Manna and veggie treats which Gary grows in his garden. We LOVE spoiling our birds and it shows! You can see more photos of them on our website below. We are always happy to answer any questions about them and if you see some you like feel free to email me if you wish to place a special order of any variety you might like.

    I have Fibromyalgia and can't work. My chickens are my therapy that keep me going, selling a few hatching eggs helps me buy feed for my little feathered loved ones. I gather several times a day to keep the eggs from getting to hot or to cold, to insure they are fresh and fertile for you. They are dated and turned three times a day and stored in a temperature controlled room to assure you the best possible hatch. All eggs are coded on which pen they come from and are no more than four/five days old when shipped. This insures the eggs are stronger to handle the shipping. Eggs are usually fairly clean, but may contain occasional soiling. I do not wash eggs but will brush of excess soiling if present. Washing can contaminate the eggs and may decrease hatch rate. Shipping for a doz is $14.00 which besides postage also covers bubble wrap, tape and gas. Eggs are wrapped individually in a long strip of bubble wrap then nestled and secured in crumpled newspaper and box is clearly marked FRAGILE. I have found if I don't put Hatching Eggs on the box they get treated better also, but will gladly mark them that way if you so want. I've had very good success shipping this way. I pack and ship they way I would like my eggs shipped with lots of packing!

    WE HAVE HAD AN EXCELLENT HATCH RATE HERE ON THE FARM THIS YEAR AND SET EGGS WEEKLY FROM EACH PEN WEEKLY TO KEEP A CHECK ON FERTILITY. WE HAVE HAD GREAT REPORTS FROM OUR SHIPPED EGGS AS WELL, HOWEVER WE CANNOT GUARANTEE YOUR HATCH RATE DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES OUT OF OUR CONTROL. ROUGH POSTAL HANDLING, INCUBATOR MISHAPS AND EVEN DIRTY HANDS TURNING EGGS WILL MAKE PERFECTLY FERTILE EGGS NOT DEVELOP OR HATCH. PURCHASING SHIPPED HATCHING EGGS IS A RISK, SO PLEASE BE UNDERSTANDING AND KNOW THIS WHEN PURCHASING HATCHING EGGS!

    THANK YOU for looking at our birds,
    God Bless and happy bidding from Lucky Pickens Farm!


    1. ** BLACK & BLUE BARRED pen includes a beautiful Barred Cochin Bantam rooster "Bubba" with "Barbie" a Barred hen for Black Barred and "Speckles" a Splash hen for Blue Barred. I have hatched some of both and they are turning out really nice especially the Blue Barred. (Egg code BARC)

    2. ** LEMON BLUE pen includes a Lemon Blue rooster "Prince" who is just gorgeous with a hint of metallic lemon gold in his hackles. Which is just beautiful in contrast to his dark blue base coloring with lighter splash coloring in his wings and tail. With him is a Lemon Splash hen "Goldilocks" with her golden coloring in her hackles against the lighter splash coloring it is easy to see how she gets her name! Also in the pen is Lemon Blue pullet "PJ" that I hatched and raised from them. All are great type with very full buns, with a very unique coloring which so far the chicks I have hatched from them look just like them. They are all just beautiful!. (Egg code LBC)

    3. ** BLACK SPLIT TO LAVENDER pen. I bred and raised these from my show blacks bred from a Lavender rooster I hatched last summer from shipped eggs from Bill Clegg in GA. Pen includes "Ace" the cockerel and 3 hens, "Valentine, Candy and Sweetheart" They all got their names from being hatched on Valentine's Day LOL! All are just as sweet as can be and LOVE and demand all the attention! The girls are all laying just about every day which is just wonderful since their mama's don't lay very well at all! All are really nice type that hopefully will produce better type and feather quality lavenders. I have been hatching both black and lavender chicks now and they are maturing out very nice so far. (Egg code B/LC)

    Dear luckypickens,

    I just wanted to touch base and thank you for your great service. I was shocked at how wee-tiny they were. So cute!! I am happy to report that all 14 eggs arrived safe and sound and that upon candling them today, 11 are developing and show visible blood vessels. Only three are not. At this point, you have done everything within your power to give me a great opportunity to hatch these wonderful birds. I will be leaving positive feedback today. I will keep you posted as we approach hatch just so you know how we did. I think getting 11 viable eggs from the 12 I bought is a super deal. Thank you again.

    All the best,
    Amy
