Listing is for 12+ Orpington eggs. These chicks will be close to 50% blue /black. Out of large hatches I end up with about 3-6 Splash, very few in comparison. This flock came from Bama chicken (Julie) here on BYC about 3yrs ago. No other strains have been added since that time. They are very large birds with really nice type. They are extremely hardy, I dont' pamper my birds. I have had one auction prior to this one where scbatz33 here on BYC won the bid. She has informed me that out of 18 eggs she has 13 with good development and should hatch soon. I don't know why she has not posted feed back, I can't control that part. I can send you more eggs if you have any issues with your eggs not hatching. So far shipped eggs seem to be right around 80% as I have done a bit of trading too and everyone seems happy. In the following photos of chicks you can see what I hatched recently. Please ignorer the silkie and partridge bantam chicks in the photo. All of the black and blue chicks are Orps. I will collect eggs for 4 days after your auction ends, you get all the eggs from those 4 days, way over 12. I don't have pay pal so MO is the only way of payment.

This is another reason you will be getting well over 12 eggs, to make up for the fact up to 4 eggs could be from her.
