    My birds are from Harry Shaffer. All chicks have hatched out 100% Lavender. I culled heavy, however, these are a project bird and I do not quarantee perfection. There are 8 hens/pullets and 3 roosters in the pen, 5 are laying so far.
    The eggs will be wrapped in tissue, bubble wrapped, in an egg carton, packed in peanuts/paper and doubled boxed. With all of this I cannot guarantee that the USPS will do their job and get them to you on time and safe.
    These are by far the most friendly chickens we have. Of coarse the do get lots of treats by hand.

    The eggs look kind of grey on my monitor. [​IMG] Do you have pictures of them in different light?

    I have only one of Harry's birds - a roo and Yvonne I so need those babies I'm getting in 10 days!!! Catwalk, the color lavendar is so hard to photograph, give the wrong lighting it can look pale, or light or gray coloring..... Please see my picture from my closed auction.

    That's also Harry Shaffer and I took 35 shots over about 5 different times to get a color that was slightly close to how they look and I'm still not satisfied that I got the right color... But I do love lavendar.... Well, Yvonne hope you don't mind me piping in here!!! Hope your auction goes very very very well....If only I had more incubator room!

    Harry's Birds are the sweetest. My young DD took on a "flock" of her own from our culls from Harry. They go right up to her and she can pic them up 2 at a time...they are large fowl and seem to beg to be pet!
