I have for your consideration 12+ hatching eggs from my beautiful Silver Laced Cochin bantam pen. (Egg code SLC) I started with the pair Bruce and Lacie I bought as chicks. They have matured into 2 beautiful birds and I have hatched and sold beautiful chicks just like them all summer. I've kept 4 really nice pullets which now have been laying for several weeks now. I have several eggs in the incubator so I have confirmed fertility. All are nice type and color with heavy foot feathering. The pullets still have a little filling out to do but I think at 5 months old they look awesome! This is a 24 hour auction so please pay by Paypal with [email protected] as soon as auction is over so I can ship eggs on Wednesday. At Lucky Pickens Farm weve been raising poultry for over 50 years and strive to raise high quality birds for show or just for pets. All birds on our farm are blood tested Pullorum/Typhoid clean. We see that our birds are kept happy and healthy by giving them the very best feed and TLC daily! We strive to breed to the Standard of Perfection on each breed we raise and all are purebred and kept in individual breeding pens away from predators. We feed a high quality, high protein all natural game bird breeder pellet with vitamins and minerals in the water daily to insure high fertility. We also feed a little scratch grains, Calf Manna and veggie treats from the garden daily. We LOVE spoiling our birds and it shows! You can see more photos of them on our website below. We are always happy to answer any questions about them and if you see some you like feel free to email me if you wish to place a special order of any variety you might like. I have Fibromyalgia and can't work. My chickens are my therapy that keep me going, selling a few hatching eggs helps me buy feed for my little feathered loved ones. I gather several times a day to keep the eggs from getting to hot or to cold to stay fresh and fertile for you. They are dated and turned three times a day and stored in a temperature controlled room to assure you the best possible hatch. All eggs are coded on which pen they come from and are no more than four-five days old when shipped. This insures the eggs are stronger to handle the shipping. Eggs are usually fairly clean, but may contain occasional soiling. I do not wash eggs but will brush of excess soiling if present. Washing can contaminate the eggs and may decrease hatch rate. Eggs are wrapped individually in a long strip of bubble wrap then nestled and secured in crumpled newspaper and box is clearly marked FRAGILE. I have found if I don't put Hatching Eggs on the box they get treated better also, but will gladly mark them that way if you so want. I've had very good success shipping this way. I pack and ship they way I would like my eggs shipped with lots of packing! We have had an excellent hatch rate on our farm ourselves this year as well as with our shipped eggs. However, we cannot guarantee your hatch rate due to circumstances out of our control. Rough postal handling and incubator mishaps will make perfectly fertile eggs not develop or hatch. Purchasing shipped hatching eggs is a risk. Please be understanding and know this when purchasing hatching eggs. **THANK YOU and Best of Luck hatching from Lucky Pickens Farm!** Roslyn & Gary Pickens Raisin' critters & havin' a ball in Danville, AR http://community.webshots.com/user/luckypickens Paypal address...
