    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 2 months. I have 1 rooster for 4 hens 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.

    The shipping will be computed based on your zip code and whether you want USPS insurance or express mailing instead of our regular priority shipping so that's why shipping shows $.01.

    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 but all of them are carriers of the lavendar gene.

    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. 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.

    Please check out our feedback.

    and also in the new system.

    We accept paypal for this auction. If you want to preorder outside of the order, we do accept USPS money orders 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.

    Just hit buy when you are ready to purchase please. Please pm me if you have any questions a
    and have a blessed day. Nancy

    I am saving my swagbucks for it-I need about $15 yet! I am getting a Brinsea Octagon 20 (basic-no turner). It is cheaper through the Brinsea website-$100, last time I checked, but I can get it from Amazon with my gift cards won through searching with Swagbucks. Better deal for me-I don't have to spend any money for it! [​IMG]
    I am going to be getting eggs from you next Spring, for sure! Orps and RPs! Want to trade for Silkie eggs? [​IMG]
