    For your consideration I have 12 plus hatching eggs from our purebred Splash/Blue FULLY Bearded Silkies or our cute adorable colorful Sizzle Bantams. LET ME KNOW WHICH YOU WANT OR CAN DO AN ASSORTMENT OF ALL TO ADD COLORFUL EYE CANDY FOR YOUR FLOCK!. All are laying pretty good right now, but you know Silkies and Sizzles they can go broody at the drop of a hat LOL. Cochin Bantams are the most sweetest docile birds and I have SEVERAL that are just total pets LOL. They are my all time favorite bantam! They are great layers, but prefer being broody or taking care of chicks. We LOVE the Sizzles and use them to hatch all of our Peafowl and Turkey eggs. Both are great as pets or 4-H poultry projects as well! They love getting all the attention! Shipping for a doz is $13.00. We take Paypal and USPS money orders and ship eggs on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. We are always happy to work with you on a shipping date you prefer and any special orders you might want. We love our little colorful bantams and know you will also

    At Lucky Pickens Farm we’ve 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!

    Below is a little info about each of our breeding pens so you have some idea of what color you might get. You can see more photos of them on our website below and are always happy to answer any questions about them. If you see some you like feel free to email us about special orders.

    ***Our SILKIES all have full beards and tall full crests, black skin and 5 evenly spaced toes. We have 1 Splash Silkie rooster "Gonzo" with 2 Splash Silkie hens and 2 Black Silkie hens. You will get Splash & Blue from this breeding and we get lots of chicks with vaulted heads. My Silkies are pretty little fuzzballs who are correct in every way and love being broody!

    ***Our SIZZLES are a work in progress, but are getting close to the Silkie standard but with frizzle feathers! If you love Cochin and Silkies then you will LOVE Sizzles! They are the best of both, just absolutely adorable, lovable and hands down the best broodies of them all! Chicks are so cute and colorful, you will get both straight and frizzles, but you will absolutely love them all! Please remember when breeding with the frizzle gene to breed straight to frizzle or you won't get nice curly feathers. Save the straight birds from frizzle breeding and breed back to frizzle birds. You will get a higher number of frizzles then with even prettier curls.

    ***Pen #1 includes a fully bearded Splash Partridge Silkie Rooster "Gomez"and the hens are... 2 Partridge Frizzle Sizzles, , 1 Black Frizzle Sizzle, 1 Blue Frizzle Cochin Bantam and 2 Partridge Frizzle Cochin Bantams.

    ***Pen #2 includes a Mille Fleur d'Uccle rooster with a Blue Frizzle Sizzle and 1 White Frizzled Sizzle. With this breeding we are working on putting more color, muffs and foot feathers on our sizzles. Eggs are in the incubator and can't wait to see how they turn out.

    Chicken raisin' is all we do so I assure you we gather often to keep the eggs from getting to hot or to cold to stay fresh and fertile for you. Our hatching eggs we send out are no more than three days old. They are turned three times a day and stored in a temperature controlled room to assure you the best possible hatch. 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 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. 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. When your eggs arrive carefully unwrap them and store them pointy end down at room temperature for 12-24 hours to help the air cell settle from shipping.

    I have Fibromyalgia and can't work. My chickens are my therapy that keep me going, selling a few hatching eggs and chicks helps me buy feed for my little feathered loved ones, THANK YOU for looking!

    Hugs, God Bless and happy hatching from Lucky Pickens Farm!

    Quote:Sorry no I am not. I use to be but when I lost most of my chickens to a flood I let it drop. I was so depressed I didn't think I was going to raise anymore. I've been a tester for years though so just decided to test my own. If I add any new breeders I always quarantine and test before I ever add them to my flock.

    so if you test this flock yourself, won't they be NPIP tested?

    My flock is 100% pullurum free but not certified by the state of Arkansas. So if you are NPIP flock you have to get eggs from a NPIP flock.
