    This auction is for 12 + extras, Blue/Splash Orpington eggs to be shipped out this coming Tuesday, July 6th. Shipping is included in the BIN price unless you live in OR, WA, or CA then add an extra $5 to help cover the extra shipping expense.

    My flock is blue and splash, so you will not get blacks from these eggs. People usually get quite a few splashes too.

    I have all of my breeder flocks on a breeder supplement and have had excellent results with hatching eggs so far this year. [​IMG]

    I just want to say that someone needs to jump on these eggs fast! [​IMG]

    I got 13 Orp eggs from Stacey 3 weeks ago. Yesterday, I had 12 GORGEOUS [​IMG] chicks hatch...looks like I've got 6 splash and 6 blue. And the chicks are very healthy and vibrant. [​IMG] This is the best hatch I've ever had with shipped eggs. [​IMG] Stacey's stock is gorgeous, and the fertility and viability of her eggs is outstanding. [​IMG]

    I had the same experience too. The best hatch rate I have ever had.
    I got 7 splash and 5 blue, and only two splash are boys and all the rest are girls!!
