    Our Wheaten Marans are laying very well. My incubators are full and so we are offering these for sale! This will ship week of March 21

    You will receive 12 Wheaten Marans hatching eggs and more if available the day of shipping. This flock is of Bev Davis/Buddy Henry lineage and now Garry farm lineage as well. Based on their laying patterns I do expect more but cannot guarantee it! Anticipated date of mailing is Monday March 28.

    Here's one of the pretty pullets from the original flock! No pullet eggs will be included however!!!!! My pullets are in a separate penned area.

    Here's a picture of the laying flock:

    I have been really pleased with the rich coloring of eggs in this flock...The hens have been laying now for many months and the coloring remains beautiful!

    These eggs pictures are several months old and some are lighter and some are much darker, all the hens are on different laying cycles!

    We breed toward the anticipated standards in our flocks

    Payment and Shipping and Handling details:

    In order to mail these after the close of the auction, please paypal the us at the following address:

    [email protected]
    Be sure that your paypal mailing address is current and if you want to pick up at the post office, please let me know via a pm your phone so I can put it on the box!

    If you want insurance, please send $18.70 not $16.70 for shipping as the insurance from USPS costs us $2.00 more. If for any reason you want us to add a heat pack to the package, it is an additional $2.00. (If you select one/more of these 2 add ons, please let me know what you want added.)

    We are very care about selecting, carefully packing, packing materials, priority shipping and confirmation delivery. If extra(s) are available at the time of shipping, I'll include those as well. Usually I compute the shipping based on your zip code and whether you want insurance or express mailing instead of our regular priority shipping with confirmation delivery but in order to get this package moving tomorrow, we are giving a FLAT rate on our shipping.

    We ship eggs the same way we would like to receive them. We bubble wrap each egg separately, putting in a regular box (not an egg carton) which is then cushioned and set in a larger box. These are not the prepaid priority boxes but we use the large boxes that can be ordered through USPS as the standard mailing box. Our mailing costs can often be higher than the prepaid boxes but we find that they arrive in better shape, so it's well worth the extra time, packing materials and shipping costs. Occasionally with a large order, we will use an even larger outside box. After carefully preparing you package we drive your eggs to the Post Office, where our local post office sets the egg shipments to the side to protect them. They are then placed on the truck on the top of all the other boxes! Our mailing costs are average cost based so you may pay immediately after winning the auction and we may ship in a timely fashion! Even as carefully as we ship, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We do not guarantee the percentage of your hatch as the incubators temperature and humidity are very variable. We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible.

    We are a chemical free farm and farm full-time. We feed our animals with the best feed, sprouted grains, fresh grasses, treats from the garden and loving care. For more information about our farm, please visit our website http://freewebs.com/thegarryfarm.webs.com/

    We are only able to accept paypal only for this auction and ship only within the US. Pickups at our farm are also allowed.
    Please let me know if you have any questions. Happy Bidding...Thanks and have a blessed day. Nancy

    Several of you have asked how we ship eggs. Please see my page (you can click button under the side tab) or see below:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=8875

    Since I've received and shipped many eggs, I am so satisfied with this method we have developed! It takes over one hour and 30 minutes to wrap a dozen eggs, but the hatching results I'm getting are so convincing me that it is worth both the time and the expensive bubble wrap, packing peanuts and tape and time and gas to and from the post office!

    Feel free to use this method but if you copy portions of it, Please do give full credit to The Garry Farm.

    Thanks and have a blessed day and Happy Bidding....Farmer Nancy
