These eggs will be shipped the week of October 26, if payment is received in a timely fashion. We hatch eggs from our Cochins on a regular basis in an incubator, but mainly under broody hens. Cochins are natural mothers and make get broodies. We show at APA (American Poultry Association) sanctioned shows. We won something from each show we attended the last 3 years and are hoping for another great year in 2010! Show results from our September 12 show include the following wins from our Cochins: Reserve Best of Show, Best Asiatic, Reserve Asiatic, Best of Breed, Reserve of Breed, Best of Variety, and Reserve of Variety. Our main breeding rooster took home 2 trophies, a blue ribbon, and a purple best of class ribbon. We select birds for massive size, good feather, yellow feet, and excellent foot feathering. This birds have a instinctive laid-back personality despite their huge size. All of our Cochins are black, no blue or splash genes. PAYMENT: Paypal only, please. If you would like your phone number placed on the box for post office pickup, please include it when you send payment. Paypal payment email address is email@example.com.

If at least half of the eggs are broken during shipping, you must get a postal worker to sign a letter stating so. This guarantee does not include the replacement eggs that are lost, stolen, or returned to me. IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: We are NOT a commerical farm. We are just simple country folk who love chickens! We have a limited number of eggs that we will be offering for auction. We do selectively breed for traits according to the APA Standard of Perfection. Although not all of our poultry is "perfect" we still strive for the best. We cannot guarantee that you will get show-quality birds, but they have the genetics to be.
