    ** NOTE - these are pullet eggs, as these girls just started laying before Christmas. Fertility checks have been good and their mate is very 'attentive'. I will add extras as possible ** Double note - I am selling my flock of these as our landlord will no longer allow us to house the birds. While I can guarantee that this auction will be filled, I cannot guarantee that we will have other auctions for these eggs as the flock is dispersed. Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!

    Up for auction: 12 eggs from my original 'fluffy' male (hatched from Jubaby's eggs) and my Line B smooth carriers.[/b]

    We ship flat rate priority ($15) or regional flat rate ($9) if available based on your zip code.

    Eggs will ship on 1/10 (Tuesday) so payment needs to be made at the end of the auction. Paypal only please.

    We ship flat rate priority ($15), or regional ($9ish) if available based on your zip code, plus a 3$ fee for materials (bubble wrap, packing peanuts, etc).

    Please also note that even as carefully as your eggs will be shipped, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We also cannot guarantee the percentage of your hatch as the incubators temperature and humidity are very variable.

    Please note - these are not Ameraucana/Silkie/EE crosses. Jubaby hatched these unique birds from pure Ameraucana eggs and I in turn, hatched mine from her stock. Somewhere, very far back in these birds' genetics, they ended up being carriers for h (hookless), the same gene responsible for the feathers on Silkies. These birds that Jubaby, myself, and a handful of others have hatched retain their hookless feathers while having none of the other Silkie traits (black skin, extra toes, vaulted skulls). They appear, with exception to their feathers, to be normal pure Ameraucanas. This is what makes these birds so unique, and such a pleasure to raise.

    I have paired my 'fluffy' male with my Line B Blue smooth carriers (fluffy/pure F1 crosses) (from Pips&Peeps stock) to improve their blue egg coloring. You will get 50% fluffy chicks from this hatch, which should come out to 50% blue and 50% splash. The remaining 50% smooth feathered chicks will be carriers.

    Thanks and Happy Bidding!!

    Love love love! Do they do well in cold areas? I'm in NH-- my coop is heated, but it gets pretty cold. Thanks.

    As long as your coop isn't too drafty they should be fine. The only accommodation I've needed to make for mine has been to have low roosts / ladders as they are like Silkies that cannot leap to a roost.

    I've sent these eggs to people in the North East and Pacific Northwest and their birds have done quite well - if you can have Silkies or Cochins, you can have these!

    So amazing!! I see you are selling your flock... Do you have any details on that? You are pretty local to me- I live in santa clarita and work in moorpark. Are you selling individually or trying to keep the flock as one package deal?
