    6+ at least 2 extra Paint Eggs, with possibility of hatching showgirls. This will be for all eggs collected this week until shipping. If payment is made immediately when auction ends, I may be able to ship out Friday. If Friday is not possible, eggs will ship on Saturday or Monday, buyer's choice.

    I just have 2 hens currently laying in my paint flock, since Dottie appears to have gone broody so eggs will not come from her, just Olive and Buffy. I have another nice white hen with one black spot on her wing that just started laying, I'm incubating some of her eggs now, so I will have a couple extras from her. There will be at least 8 eggs plus any extras I get before shipping Monday, December 12th.

    Paints can be unpredictable in colors of hatching offspring, but they seem to be hatching out a lot of paints. All four of my breeding roos are paint (one is a showgirl). Pictures of them are below. I do have gorgeous paint babies from them. Pictures of their babies are below. All breeders have 5 toes. The fertility I’m finding in the eggs I’m incubating is great, but I cannot guaranty hatch rates with shipped eggs. I had development in 100% of the eggs I incubated last month from these birds.

    They will be shipped by USPS Priority Mail, which typically takes 2-3 days. I will not be responsible for any accidents in the mail since I cannot control what happens when they leave. I will ship within continental US only, excluding HI, AK. If your state has restrictions on receiving shipped eggs, please contact me prior to bidding. I will individually wrap each egg and package with care. I will not mark it as eggs, since I’ve heard too many instances of boxes marked eggs having more “accidents” but will mark the box as fragile. Paypal payment is due the day auction closes.

    If you do not accept my terms, please do not bid. If you have additional questions, I’m happy to answer them.


    My roosters – all bearded except showgirl, which has bowtie:

    Olive (black hens tend to help keep dark pigmentation in paint offspring)

    Dottie (only not-bearded hen and is broody so probably will not get eggs from her)

    Chicks from 12/4 hatch: (1 very nice paint shown in first 2 pics, 1 black, and the rest either have smaller spots or no spots showing yet. They may or may not develop spots later. The small spots tend to get bigger when feathers come in as shown in above pics.)

    All chicks I've hatched have had 5 toes like the rest of my flock.

    I bought these on the last auction. I received 15 eggs. They are on day 13 and ALL are developing! I couldn't be happier!! I have never received mailed eggs that didn't have a few clears or late quitters till now. I am super impressed!! The PO was gentle with them as well.

    As of today, 12/22, I have collected 9 eggs to ship. Also updated above pictures to include Christmas pictures of the first babies hatched from my flock. [​IMG]

    This may be the last eggs I have available for awhile. It's looking like all of my laying girls are catching the broody bug.

    10 eggs collected as of 12/23. [​IMG]
