    Up for bid are 12 ++ hatching eggs from my Black/Brown/Chocolate Project that I'm working on! I'm allowing these eggs to be sold because my incubators are full and I really hate to see eggs go to waste. I even asked some of my friends if they had room in their incubators, but they're full too! I have some of their eggs in my incubator right now and can't wait to see my beautiful chicks that are going to hatch out!

    Here are some pictures of the parents.......notice how my Roosters are almost completely Chocolate. My hens have a lot of brown and chocolate pigment along with the black. I am dying to know what this cross will produce. No matter what....I'm sure that it will be VERY PRETTY!

    So, how many of you want to play this hatching game with me? It's really gonna be fun to see what hatches out and matures? I hate to play alone!

    Here are some pictures of my Chocolate Roosters:

    And here's a close-up of King

    So now discuss.....I'm sure there will be a lot of comments, but I'm definitely going to wait and see what happens! But, I can do this because I already have some eggs in my incubator...LOL If you want to take part in this....just bid....LOL

    I will add extra eggs to the 12 up for auction. My hens are laying very well out of this breeding pen....so I assume that I will be able to add several extras for you!

    I'm getting good hatch rates here at my farm, but I cannot guarantee the hatch rate once the eggs leave here due to the fact that I cannot control the US Post Office and how they handle the packages. I will mark the box with "FRAGILE" because I am finding that they are handled better that way. I will put "Hatching Eggs" on the box if you want me to. But, some of the workers handle boxes a little better if you put "Fragile".

    My flock is NPIP & AI tested. A certificate will be put in with shipment of eggs. The Orpingtons are very hard winter birds and are prolific brown egg layers. They are a very hardy bird. Please email me with any questions you may have.

    Please pay through my Paypal account: [email protected]. Please DO NOT use ECHECK as your payment because it can take too long sometimes for payment to clear. As soon as payment clears......I will ship the eggs.

    We ship eggs the same way that we would want to receive them! We bubble wrap each egg and place in in a #4 size shipping box (not egg carton) with extra bubble wrap in box all around the individaully wrapped eggs to make sure they don't move. Then we place that box into another box with padding all around it to secure the eggs even more! We will also put a tracking number on the shipment to keep tabs on it. You will be emailed the tracking number as soon as they are shipped, so that you can keep track as well!

    If you want special instructions such as to pick up the eggs at the Post Office...please let me know when you make payment. Also give me your phone number so that I can supply that for the Post Office to call you when your eggs get there! Please supply your email address as well so that I can email you the tracking number. If you want insurance put on your eggs you will have to pay extra for that when you make payment with Paypal.

    HAPPY BIDDING!!!!

    You simply MUST give more info about these birds.

    Where did you get them? How long have you had them and what color combinations have you had?

    STAND BACK, EVERYONE!!!! If I don't get info my head will explode!!!

    That's the thing! Chocolate can't be created, it has to be introduced, and I'm needing to know if she has Dun or what...I'm interested but need more info. My Chocolate roo needs girlfriends, but the right gene has to be there!

    Well, unless she imported Chocs a long time ago and has been secretly working on them... which she very well may have... but these birds don't look English to me, type wise, then they're probably Dun based... which means that by breeding Dun X Dun you would get Khaki Orpingtons. GORGEOUS!

    I want to know more about their genetic background, too. [​IMG]
