    We have been blessed with healthy and beautiful Easter Eggers but one of my roosters is a beautiful purebred Lavendar Ameracauna Rooster from Harry Shaffer lineage whose name is "Sharky". I had so hoped to be able to get him some purebreds Lavendar Ameracauna pullets or hens last year as many of you as I posted WTB after WTB....But since none were available so I didn't want Sharky to get discouraged or any lonelier, so I changed my search for EE eggs And hatched babies that are now laying Hens They have pretty colors and are very interesting. Sharky and the other roosters are doing their jobs!!! The babies that I hatched from Sharkey's pen have been beautiful. Some with heavy lavendar colors and one that looked just lavendar chocolaty. The babies from the other pen have also been so colorful and fun! Unfortunately I posted them on a computer that's crashed have been great and I've sold every one. So next hatching I must make photos and keep on a disk and here on BYC.

    Sharky and his flock:

    One of the hens from the other flock:
    Sweetie, always goes up to roost after she lays an egg. She has bits of blue/grey blue on her face and feathers and is just a charmer!

    These eggs will ship on Monday January 31 if payment is received by 12 noon EST

    Based on their current laying patterns, you should get ample extra eggs. (One of the groups of the Easter Eggers will soon be turned into my Olive Egger pen later in 2011, so more interesting developments from the farm.)

    The shipping is average based on our shipping rates. We ship eggs in 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.

    Payment for this auction will need to be through Paypal in order to ship on time!

    Picture of eggs from last week. Flash kept going off, I'm sorry. But you will see there are shades of green and blue green...Some of parents came from pink Easter Egg eggers so there's a potential of that in their future eggs as well.

    If I can get my flash to stop, I'll take photos today of today's eggs with no flash!

    Many of you have asked detailed questions about how we ship eggs, so I've developed a more detailed narrative on this process....

    Please go here for more information on The Garry Farm's (bargain) method - it's my BYC Page! And please don't copy parts of the narrative without giving credit to the farm. We've working on this technique for quite some time! We do welcome you to try it!

    Bargain, you were my inspiration when I first learned how to pack eggs! It works too, take your time and don't juggle them around, and make a really good cushion between them and the sides of the box, with the double boxing there are two cushions. Those air pillows work well if you have them in the outer 'ring'. That Lav Roo is outstanding, just beautiful. Too bad I don't need blue eggs.

Besides they make great sales and gifts to others!!! Yes, it takes time to wrap that way but OOOOHHHH.. the results are soo worth it!....Have a blessed evening. Nancy
