    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 3 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.

    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.

    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.
    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.

    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 start bidding when you are ready to purchase please. Please pm me or post your questions and have a blessed day. Nancy

    I've had hatches where I have both lavendars and also blacks (carrying the lavendar gene), so the answer is I've gotten both colors and so there is a potential for you to get both colors too!

    Hope that answers your questions! Have a blessed day and happy bidding!

    Quote:sorry bargain, you are not correct in what will hatch from these birds.
    as stated here that they are all black split to lavender, hatches should be as follows:

    you will hatch from birds that are black split to lavender
    25% all black- no lavender
    50% black split lavender
    25% lavender

    the splits will look the same as the black without lavender ie: 25% visual lavender/ 75% visual blacks)

    if this auction was for lavender birds bred with black split lavender, then you would have 50% lavender and 50% black splits
    all birds carrying the lavender gene but visually 50% black/ 50% lavender.
