    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 chick. So next hatching I must make photos and keep on a disk and here on BYC. There will be eggs from both pens.

    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, Feb. 28, if payment is received by 4 pm EST on February 27

    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!

    I just received my eggs from The Garry's and they are wrapped so nice! I don't think there's a way in the world one could get broken! They are beautiful, clean and ready to get in the incubator tomorrow! I cannot wait to see what the chicks will look like, I'm imagining all kinds of unique and gorgeous combinations. What could be cuter than chicks with little fuzzy butts and fuzzy little cheeks!! Thank you so much!

    I wanted to add that they arrived very fast-perfect packing, fast shipping!

    I bought some of these from bargain and the eggs are GORGEOUS, great packing, fast shipping, and even my cranky postman seemed to understand that they were special and was gentle with them. I was VERY happy with every aspect of my transaction and HIGHLY recommend buying this (before I get anymore as my incubator is already full [​IMG])

    I just set these eggs, but I am very much looking forward to seeing how the chicks turn out.

    THanks Cozycritter and IroquoisEgg, I just pack the way I want to receive....It's labor intensive and puts a huge hole in my supply of bubble wrap I order bi monthly but the results and happy chicken/poultry lovers like myself make it ALLL worthwhile. Well fed all 400 chickens and watered...Checked on babies hatching in incubator and it's time for church! Smell a bit of the outdoors and where's that cologne???

    Have a happy bidding time! Love and hugs to all....Farmer Nancy

    PS.....Please go here https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=8875 to see an actual step by step of how we wrap our eggs. Feel free to use this for youself, but please give credit to The Garry Farm for this document...Thanks again and have a happy and blessed day....Off to find that cologne! May have to use vanilla extract...It works!
