    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 11 or April 12 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!

    Okay I finally downloaded some photos from camera. Here's my hubby holding some of the looking like lavendary colored Baby chicks. Here are some of them

    and

    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!

    Just want to say that Some people say the color of these younguns is more blueish and truly until I get Sharkey's upcoming ameraucana girls added to the pen and they are now only 6 to 8 weeks old, that pen will not be producing pure lavendars, but the colors are indeed marvelous! Just want to clear that up.... So I really should say lavendar/blue colored if these are a true blue...We'll have to see how they feather out!

    I have some absolutely beautiful birds from these eggs. Hatching from those making it to lockdown was 6/6 from one group and 4/6 from another, and these were shipped to the West Coast!

    My eggs from this flock arrived within a day and were all greatly packed, not one broken. She sent me 14! They are due to hatch the 30th.

    Some have asked for more details on how we ship. Please see the pictures and instruction posted on my page here on BYC which is here:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=8875 It takes us about 90 minutes to wrap a dozen eggs, but your hatching results are worth the time! Please don't copy any of the pictures or instructions without giving reference to The Garry Farm but we hope you will try this shipping method if you ship eggs...It certainly has worked for us!

    Have a blessed day and Happy Bidding to all! Nancy
