    We have been blessed with healthy and beautiful Easter Eggers but one of my roosters is a beautiful purebred Lavendar Ameraucana Rooster from Harry Shaffer lineage whose name is "Sharky". I had so hoped to be able to get him some purebreds Lavendar Ameraucana 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.

    Anticipated ship date is April 4 or April 5 if payment is made promptly after the auction ends.

    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 April 4 or April 5, if payment is received by 12 noon EST on April 4

    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!

Feel free to look for this auction in earlier posts and see the hatching rates that our customers have received and other pictures of babies that were hatched. Happy Bidding and please let me know if you have any questions! Nancy

    is the link to the earlier auction and look CHickemama got 100% hatch..... Now not everyone gets that high but it can happen! I've been unable to keep any babies here on the farm. I now have a waiting list for these little EE's because the colors have been so fabulous on their feathers and eggs! have a blessed evening. This farmer is about to get some much needed rest!

    Just a small sampling of my babies that were hatched last week from these eggs. I really can't believe how beautiful they all are. I got 1 pure lavender and a few more that are mostly lavender with some darker mahogany colors in them. Others are light with lavender -just gorgeous. My highest hatch rate from shipped eggs-honest! I may bid again before my hatching season is over:)

    I sell these babies faster than I can hatch them...Aren't they just spectacular? Sharkey's imprinting is evident on these in coloring and great puffy cheeks and bearding!

    Hello, we just did our 10 day candling on these eggs from bargain and we had 11 out of 13 with great veining and a moving little embryo. There were just 2 that did not develop. This is the best we have done with shipped eggs so far! I highly recommend these eggs and can attest to their fertility. Good luck with bidding. [​IMG]
