    Our Wheaten Marans are laying very well. My incubators are full and so we are offering these for sale!

    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.

    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!

    We breed toward the anticipated standards in our flocks

    Payment and Shipping and Handling details:

    In order to mail these on Monday,January 31, 2011, we will need to receive paypal by 11:00 am EST on Monday, January 31,2011. Paypal address is:

    bargain020720@yahoo.com

    If you are the winning bid, please send your paypal to us as soon as the auction ends and 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.

    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! 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/

    and the current feedback system at the top of this listing.

    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

    [​IMG]:thumbsupI'd love to see some pics of the eggs. I really like how you offer the 2 dollars more for the insurance. I have ordered eggs 5 times and 2 times the order has gotten lost in the mail. There was a tracking number but it only showed that it had been scanned at the location the eggs were sent and nothing else. 1 dozen showed up 2 weeks later and 1 dozen never showed and the other I couldn't reorder because the hens stopped laying. I have never had anything lost in the mail until I started ordering eggs and it has happenned 2 out of 5 times. I'm new at this and can't beleive how often it has happened. Anyway I am so glad that your offering the guarantee option and when my bator is empty I will look to order from you. Your farm looks amazing.[​IMG][​IMG]:[​IMG]

    Quote:Thank you for your compliments about the farm. It's a work of love in progress and we've been blessed with being on property that was a well cared for family farm prior to our purchasing it.

    Re the insurance, Please do look at http://www.usps.com/insurance/postoffice.htm to see the different insurance coverages available and what they will cover based upon the kind of mailing done - express, etc.

    I will try to post some pics on this auction in a while, I'm in the midst of cleaning a long chicken run and came in to get water! Please look at our last auction for this as I believe that there are some photos there under request of cowgirlgrace...Have a blessed day and thanks for your interest!

    Thanks Mahonri. It has been a work of loving labor with the flock...We were blessed with wonderful starters! wanttobefarmer, here's the information from last week's auction re. photos incase you didn't see it. I didn't have time for more pictures yesterday and likely not today. We full time farm as you can see from our website, yesterday was a 4:00 am to midnite and today will be 4:30 am to about 11:30 pm (including a farmers market while family works on the farm, but I promise to try to get this weeks picture of eggs......That 45 minutes that it takes to get photos, upload to old computer and then upload to here is so scarce today..I do hope photo below will be okay...if I cannot get time to do another. Last night I literally went to bed with no dinner but we love our life!

    "The Hens have been laying for over 4 months now and the color on the eggs is lighter than the eggs in the photo below which was taken about 6 weeks ago. Please remember that I only hatch dark eggs....This means that this flock came from dark eggs which greatly enhances your opportunity to hatch dark egg layers as well. Because some of our photos are being "borrowed" and placed on other locations on the internet, I'm trying to identify as many as possible with our name before posting them.
    I hope this is clear enough for you to see.

    Many of you have asked detailed questions about how we ship eggs, so I've developed a more detailed narrative on this process....

    Please go here for more information on The Garry Farm's (bargain) method - it's my BYC Page! And please don't copy parts of the narrative without giving credit to the farm. We've working on this technique for quite some time! We do welcome you to try it!
