    Guess what?!?!!? My precious babies are still producing for me.....so I'm gonna run this one more time for 6+ eggs! Good luck!

    Up for bid are 6+ hatching eggs from my Black/Brown/Chocolate Project that I'm working on! I'm at it again....I had such a huge response on these eggs and people that really wanted to get some. So, I decided that I would try and put some more on here before they really slow down on laying for the winter months. I know they will lay....just not as good as in the spring months! So, I'm hoping that I will be able to do this maybe 1 or 2 more times, but this could be the last chance to get them....who knows?!?!? [​IMG]

    Here are some pictures of the parents.......notice how my Roosters are almost completely Chocolate. My hens have a lot of brown and chocolate pigment along with the black.

    NOW AS USUAL....DISCUSSIONS ARE OPEN ON WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE BABIES THESE BIRDS HAVE PRODUCED!


    If I have an extra one or two eggs I'll add them when I ship.

    I'm getting good hatch rates here at my farm, but I cannot guarantee the hatch rate once the eggs leave here due to the fact that I cannot control the US Post Office and how they handle the packages. I will mark the box with "FRAGILE" because I am finding that they are handled better that way. I will put "Hatching Eggs" on the box if you want me to. But, some of the workers handle boxes a little better if you put "Fragile".

    My flock is NPIP & AI tested. A certificate will be put in with shipment of eggs. The Orpingtons are very hardy winter birds and are prolific brown egg layers. Please email me with any questions you may have.

    Please pay through my Paypal account: [email protected]. Please DO NOT use ECHECK as your payment because it can take too long sometimes for payment to clear. As soon as payment clears......I will ship the eggs.

    We ship eggs the same way that we would want to receive them! We bubble wrap each egg and place in in a #4 size shipping box (not egg carton) with extra bubble wrap in box all around the individaully wrapped eggs to make sure they don't move. Then we place that box into another box with padding all around it to secure the eggs even more! We will also put a tracking number on the shipment to keep tabs on it. You will be emailed the tracking number as soon as they are shipped, so that you can keep track as well!

    If you want special instructions such as to pick up the eggs at the Post Office...please let me know when you make payment. Also give me your phone number so that I can supply that for the Post Office to call you when your eggs get there! Please supply your email address as well so that I can email you the tracking number. If you want insurance put on your eggs you will have to pay extra for that when you make payment with Paypal.

    HAPPY BIDDING!!!!

    Just wanted to give an update on the hatching. Received 15 eggs - 13 'Chocolate' and 2 Lavender split. 7 hatched on November 21st (pretty good hatch for shipped eggs). 6 hatched from the 'Chocolate' eggs, and one of the Lavender/split hatched. The Lavender split chick is dark blue (nearly black) and the other 6 chicks are black. Will keep ya'll posted of any color changes as they grow. (will try to get some pics to post). Am interested to see pics of the other chicks that will be hatching shortly. Good luck to everyone on their hatches. [​IMG]

    Quote:That's GREAT! I'm so glad that you got a pretty good hatch out of the eggs! And you are so right....shipping eggs can be a gamble! The chicks from the chocolates are being born mostly black in the beginning, but if they hold true to their parents....they will change as they get older into the dun color. Both roosters that were used for this breeding were smut black until they were about 5 months old! Then they turned the gorgeous dun/chocolate that they are now! So, be prepared to see the black coloring when they are chicks....but it will probably change. PLEASE post pics when you can. I think we should start a thread for all of the people who bought these eggs and let everybody post pics of the offspring as they grow! I'll have to see how to start a thread....I've never started one before.....but, maybe I can figure it out.....LOL How exciting.....I love it!

    There should be some more hatches real soon! Please post any pics so we can see what you get! I want to see all my GRANDCHICKS! [​IMG]

    GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY! [​IMG]

    Yep! Billie Joe bought a dozen eggs w/1 extra for good measure! I try to pack 1 or 2 extra so if they do get handled rough by the PO. I'm so excited for Billie Jo!
    Now, I'm praying that she will hatch all of them!
