    HI all, ***(11/28 AT 9:32 AM) UPDATE I HAVE 12 EGGS AS OF NOW FROM YESTERDAY AND TODAY-SO FAR...I EXPECT ANOTHER 4-6 OR MORE!!!BEFORE SHIPPING!!!*****

    *******I will also include 2-3 lav ameraucana eggs they will either be PURE lav ameraucanas or black resulting from a split black hen or split black roo...I'm including these eggs as I know they are fertile and if you get a bad fertility rate with the EE eggs you will get at least a few to hatch from these gorgeous birds**** and we'll call it even:)

    I cannot incubate until April:( I would love to but can't. I have cracked numerous eggs from these guys and am stumped on fertility. I cracked over a dozen of their eggs and they appear to be fertile-I also cracked a few eggs from my breeding pens that I know are fertile for comparison....The pure Lav ameraucana roo and the black/Lav split Ameraucana roo has been with them for months-as well as with 20 other random hens. I am only wanting to test the colored egg layers. I will ship at least a dozen eggs as I have 8 EE's that are laying:) I'm starting the auction at 1$ with the understanding that you will either have tons of fertile eggs..a few or none..so buyer beware please...All I ask is that you candle at day 7 and let me know how many are fertile please:)

    I will gladly hatch them all for you! I just don't want to brood them. [​IMG] I need to hear some peeping, or I'll go mad I tell ya! I'm sure there was a reason I promised DH I wouldn't hatch until spring, but I can't remember what that reason was. And by spring, I really meant early February! [​IMG]


    Who wants to brood for me???? [​IMG]

    Maybe I should have gotten the 10 egg incubator instead? Then I think I could hatch every month.

    Now is the perfect time to get some EE's, too. They'll be laying up a storm at this time next year, so people can use their pretty eggs to decorate with! Are you done blowing out eggs for the year?

    [​IMG] I just finished 18 more today-and blew out the 4 that got laid today:) the maran eggs...I rely heavily on my colored egg layers for all my eggs to decorate..I have done "Now" over 200 eggs to sell... [​IMG] I'm done now! hahaha
