    This auction is for 12 eggs from my lavender/porcelain silkie pen. I have been testing for fertility and have over 90% here but this will be my first shipped batch which is why I am calling them test eggs. In this pen I have a lavender rooster and a porcelain rooster over lavender and porcelain hens. ALl breeders are free of DQs and are gourgeous! All are bearded, have great toes, foot feathering, and most are vaulted.

    Disclaimers:
    Please be aware that when breeding porcelains since they are a new variety you may hatch a miscolored chick. Please do not bid if you do not understand that these are test eggs and even though I have good harch rates at home shipping eggs are a risk.

    Some older pics of the breeders from last season...they have really filled out since and look amazing! More pics can be seen on my website.

    Thanks! I have been hatching like crazy and all THREE incubators are full so I figured an auction is better than eating them or tossing them! [​IMG]

    Kasey- There are no showgirls in this pen, only silkies! I do have two showgirl auctions for any interested parties in the 8wk + section! [​IMG]

    Sonew-I had a MAJOR mishap with my bator [​IMG] I only have 8 OE, 2 lav/splits, and 6 BLRWs still kicking. What a bummer, all my fault though. They arrived perfectly, no detached air cells or anything! I think it took me as long to unpack them as it did you to pack them!!! LOL Thanks so much again! Always a happy customer!

    Fattie- I am not NPIP sadly. I have called and emailed MULTIPLE times over a year period and have gotten no response! If anyone knows any hints to get an inspector for PA out please inform! I am having NO LUCK. Very frustrating. Sorry.

    There's no hope for us breeders to become NPIP, I've called multiple times as well to get information and they never answer or call back

    Yeah it's a real shame about the NPIP. I really want to have it done, just no one ever gets back to me!

    This will be my first time shipping which is why I have it as a test batch. I have recieved like a million batches of shipped eggs though (lol ok a bit of an exaggeration, but I am a hatchohaulic). I will bubble wrap each egg, put them in a carton, tape the carton, and stuff the box really tight to keep them from moving arond. If the winner prefers I can ship in polyfoam from FowlRus as I have a ton of that too!
