    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 stop by and let everyone know that Bev packages AMAZINGLY well!! All eggs arrive intact, and even with less than ideal handling by the post office, the eggs don't appear to have moved one inch inside the box!!! Bev has excellent communication and answers all emails and questions very quickly!!! Thanks so much for sharing your birds with me Bev...hoping I can manage not to mess up this time!!! [​IMG] Bid with confidence!!!!

    Edited to add: Forgot to mention...both shipments of eggs I've gotten from Bev, all aircells were intact!! I've ordered eggs from several different people, and (thanks to the handling by the USPS) almost every shipment has at least 2 (sometimes all) eggs with damaged aircells...but not Bev's!! Eggs are clean and handled with care!! Thanks again Bev!!!

    Quote:Thanks so much Billie Jo! I try my best to treat people the same way I would want to be treated! I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed that this hatch goes fantastic and that every one of the eggs hatch for you! I've been getting a lot of response back from people that are having good hatches on the eggs they get! So good luck this time! Bev.
