    You are bidding on 24+ fertile hatching egg ASSORTMENT from 6 VARIETIES of our sweet, colorful purebred show quality COCHIN BANTAMS.

    I have gathered since Jan 9th and will continue to add more till I ship on Friday Jan 13th. I have gathered so far 4 Red, 5 Black split to Lavender, 1 Lemon Blue, 4 Mottled, 2 White and 8 Silver Lace, which also have just added 2 White hens to that pen to start with Columbian. So some eggs could be from the White hens which a week ago had been in with my White rooster.

    Cochin Bantams are the most sweetest docile birds you will ever be around. Great for kids of all ages and 4-H poultry projects as well! I have SEVERAL that are just total pets and follow me around the yard like a dog. They are my all time favorite bantam! They are great layers, but really prefer being broody or taking care of chicks.

    At Lucky Pickens Farm weve been raising poultry for over 50 years and strive to raise high quality birds for show or just for pets. All birds on our farm are blood tested Pullorum/Typhoid clean. We see that our birds are kept happy and healthy by giving them the very best feed and TLC daily! We strive to breed to the Standard of Perfection on each breed we raise and all are purebred and kept in individual breeding pens away from predators. We feed a high quality, high protein all natural game bird breeder pellet with vitamins and minerals in the water daily to insure high fertility. We also feed a little scratch grains, Calf Manna and veggie treats which Gary grows in his garden. We LOVE spoiling our birds and it shows! You can see more photos of them on our website below. We are always happy to answer any questions about them and if you see some you like feel free to email me if you wish to place a special order of any variety you might like.

    I have Fibromyalgia and can't work. My chickens are my therapy that keep me going, selling a few hatching eggs helps me buy feed for my little feathered loved ones. I gather several times a day to keep the eggs from getting to hot or to cold, to insure they are fresh and fertile for you. They are dated and turned three times a day and stored in a temperature controlled room to assure you the best possible hatch. All eggs are coded on which pen they come from and are no more than four/five days old when shipped. This insures the eggs are stronger to handle the shipping. Eggs are usually fairly clean, but may contain occasional soiling. I do not wash eggs but will brush of excess soiling if present. Washing can contaminate the eggs and may decrease hatch rate. Shipping for a doz is $15.00 which besides postage also covers bubble wrap, tape and gas. Eggs are wrapped individually in a long strip of bubble wrap then nestled and secured in LOTS of crumpled newspaper and box is clearly marked FRAGILE. I have found if I don't put Hatching Eggs on the box they get treated better also, but will gladly mark them that way if you so want. I've had very good success shipping this way. I pack and ship they way I would like my eggs shipped with lots of packing!

    WE HAVE HAD AN EXCELLENT HATCH RATE HERE ON THE FARM THIS YEAR AND SET EGGS WEEKLY FROM EACH PEN WEEKLY TO KEEP A CHECK ON FERTILITY. WE HAVE HAD GREAT REPORTS FROM OUR SHIPPED EGGS AS WELL, HOWEVER WE CANNOT GUARANTEE YOUR HATCH RATE DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES OUT OF OUR CONTROL. ROUGH POSTAL HANDLING, INCUBATOR MISHAPS AND EVEN DIRTY HANDS TURNING EGGS WILL MAKE PERFECTLY FERTILE EGGS NOT DEVELOP OR HATCH. PURCHASING SHIPPED HATCHING EGGS IS A RISK, SO PLEASE BE UNDERSTANDING AND KNOW THIS WHEN PURCHASING HATCHING EGGS!

    THANK YOU for looking at our birds,
    God Bless and Good Luck hatching from Lucky Pickens Farm!

    Dear luckypickens,

    I just wanted to touch base and thank you for your great service. I was shocked at how wee-tiny they were. So cute!! I am happy to report that all 14 eggs arrived safe and sound and that upon candling them today, 11 are developing and show visible blood vessels. Only three are not. At this point, you have done everything within your power to give me a great opportunity to hatch these wonderful birds. I will be leaving positive feedback today. I will keep you posted as we approach hatch just so you know how we did. I think getting 11 viable eggs from the 12 I bought is a super deal. Thank you again.

    All the best,
    Amy

    SUCH A GREAT HATCH!!! WORTH EVERY PENNY! MIGHT CONTACT YOU FOR A FEW LEMON SPLASH EGGS LATER IF THIS ONE DOESN'T HATCH. DO YOU HAVE ANY GOLD LACED?

    Thanks,

    I don't like this format... I want to bid, but I can't monitor bids through the day to see where it stands. I bought some of these last June and they are my favorites today. I guess I'll have to pass on these and wait on some that will end on a weekend so I can see if I need to bid again or not. So frustrating.

    I guess if you want to give me your max bid I can watch it for you. Like you I don't like it either, I already have someone who has sent me their max bid so guess I will just watch it like that or next time just put a buy it now price on it will be easier and fair for everyone then.

    I have bought eggs from Luckypickens and had great success! I loved the chicks I hatched but had to sell them all due to a recent move but will buy more eggs this spring!
    I'm happy to see you are still selling! I will be back!

    Sent you a message. Thanks Roslyn, you are an exceptional person. I love my cochins. I want some of those Rhode Island Reds too eventually! I wouldn't buy anybody else's knowing you sell them.
    * edit * my profile pic is one of your lemon blues. It's eyes weren't as big as they look in the pic, she had black lining around them. :]

    Always glad to hear from others who are affected as I am and know how much our chickens mean to each other. They sure can brighten my darkest days up!
