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.
