We have been blessed to have an assortment of beautiful purebred layers kept separately and treated to the best in feeds, sprouted grains, homeraised chemical free produce and fresh grass. We full-time farm and take the responsibility and joy of caring for our poultry very carefully. We have a high rooster to hen ratio and are getting great reports and experiencing great hatches as well. This assortment will include hatching eggs from our non-hatchery flocks as follows: You will receive a minimum of 14 eggs (more as available) - to be mailed on Monday, 12/14 if payment is received by Monday 12/14 at 10:00 am EST. A Minimum of 4 Black Copper Marans (all feathered feet and bred toward the expected standards) and then: Buff Orpingtons Barred Rocks and non Production Rhode Island Reds which are "Pure Mahogany" - they are deep mahogany and just glisten in the sun (will post their most recent photo after lunch) If you would rather have more buffs, than barreds for example, please do let me know. Also if there is a breed you don't need - say you have enough Pure Mahogany RIR - non production, just let me know and I won't include that in the mix. You will get more than 14 eggs....The number of extra egg(s) will depend on their availability on Monday morning ship. Please check our feedback on the feedback for customer service, egg shipment and transaction details. http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pcz6aC_klXJDTE8H01hR-RA We ship by bubble wrapping 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 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. 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 humdity 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'd be so honored to serve you. We ship only the freshest eggs, packing , handling, priority shipping and also confirmation delivery is included in that price of shipping. (Only 48 states for that price please) We do accept paypal for this auction. You may also pm if you wish to purchase eggs off auction as well. Please feel free to ask questions below. Thanks for looking and have a blessed day.
