    Last Christmas time I purchased a batch of Hinkjc's split black/lavendar orpington eggs and I received a second batch in January 2010...This flock has been laying now for several months. I have 1 rooster for 4 hens ratio and fertility has been great. I'm doing a test run on them now and have 100% fertility and development showing even in my stryofoams, one of which has to be reset every 4 hours! I must repair my cabinet!

    Pictures below are with my now famous $39 walmart camera...hope hubby is looking and will buy a new camera for birthday! and that is deer fencing that covers the top of the pen...These are really big birds I wanted to be sure you knew it was deer fencing. Deer fencing is a much wider plastic that the fencing on the side of a chain link. Hope that helps with perspective of the picture and their enormous size.

    Packing and shipping details:
    The shipping for this auction is preset at $16.50 which is good for 48 US states. For Alaska, we will need to add a higher amount. This figure may be a bit of a financial loss for some destinations, we want you to be able to send your total payment rapidly after the close of this auction to the paypal address :

    [email protected]

    Shipping costs include selecting and priority shipping as described below in auction detail with confirmation delivery as described below. USPS insurance is $2 more. If you want express mailing instead of our regular priority shipping we will need to recalculate your shipping total.

    We will include extra(s) the day of shipment if they are available and not part of any other order.

    All the breeder flock carry the lavendar gene. You will hatch either black or lavendar chicks.

    Anticipated ship date is December 27

    We ship eggs in 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. We also drive our shipped eggs to the post office to help avoid those long daylong drives on roads and our postal service is so kind and keeps our boxes separate from all others and loads at the top of the delivery truck ! 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 about our farm please visit us at http://thegarryfarm.webs.com/ Not all poultry and other animal pictures are loaded as we are full time farmers.

    Please check out our feedback.

    We accept paypal for this auction. If you want to preorder outside of the order, we do accept USPS money orders and paypal. and will schedule your shipment based upon when funds are received. Cash is accepted at the farm but to insure that eggs are available, you are encouraged to call, come by and sign a contract with a deposit, so you will be sure to get eggs when you need them.

    Do your black orps have the chocolate gene?
    The pictures are showing a bit of what appears to be chocolate or is that the lighting?
    I am on the lookout for a black orp roo with the chocolate gene and don't mind hatching some if the eggs are from a line showing the chocolate gene.

    Sorry I missed the question...No, I 'm not getting any babies having any chocolate genes, but if I should get any I'll let any one know.....I cannot imagine it though, since I know hinkjc was the origin of my eggs which hatched the breeder flock!

    One day I would love to add chocolates though, if anyone wants to trade chocolate eggs for split black/lavs???

    Hi Bargain,
    If I have this correct as all the parents are split, some of the offspring will be lavender, some split and and look black, and some black and not split.

    Is there any way of telling if the black chicks, (which will be 75% of the chicks), are split to lavender, or just black with no lavender gene at all.

    Thanks so much

    Phage, genetic explanation from me is almost like me trying to explain how to back out our 1/2 acre drive way blindfolded without hitting a tree..The drive way is very curvey!

    But here's the best place to see some of the genetics and how they work.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=186133

    Quoting Hinkjc:

    lavender X lavender = 100% lavender
    lav X black = 100% black carrying the lav gene
    black carrying lav X black carrying lav (visually black birds) = 50% black carrying lavender, 25% lavender and 25% straight black
    lav X black carrying lav = 50% lav and 50% black carrying lav

    This flock is item #2 - 100% black carrying the lav gene and yes, the general stats are 25% lav, 75% split as described in line 3.

    One way to know if the black are carrying the lavendar gene is to cross the hens with a lavendar rooster and you should then be getting 50% lav and 50% black carrying lavendar gene.

    You could move your hens into separate small pens and try out this way to see how the stats are going on their hatched out eggs, or keep working with your flocks until you had sufficient numbers to develop another generation of lavendar flocks. We basically have 2 flocks of our birds. Generation 1 and generation 2. I'm about to move Lavendar Orpington roosters over my split black lavendars so as to enhance the opportunities of getting more lavendar babies for everyone.

    I hope I've answered this sufficiently....If not, please feel free to pm me or repose the questions. Many thanks! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Nancy
