    just started laying a few weeks ago:). I was hoping my incubating skills would be great for this batch they came from but alas-I rot with my bator:-( If I would have gotten 2 more girls with her I would be keeping them:-( I just can't build yet another coop for just the 2 of them as I need to shrink my flocks anyway-and I would love to see them go to another great home. They were hatched from HinkJC's eggs. They are very sweet -free-range 12 hours a day and under lock and key at night- all my birds have been dewormed with Ivermectin 1 month ago. Fed lots of great treats daily-very big healthy birds. I will NOT ship. I will, however, hold onto to these guys if they are paid for and you are coming to my chickenstock in upstate NY Oct 3rd:)

    Thanks guys

    OOooHHhhh, [​IMG]I wish you lived closer I would buy them in a heartbeat. I just recently pickep up 1 Lavender Orp. Roo, 1 Lav Orp. Hen, & 3 Blk Orp Hens (that carry the Lav Gene). I would have loved to add them to my flock but, there is no way my Hubby will let me drive that far for my Chicky babes! Good luck selling them! Which I'm sure you won't have a problem since they are sooooo beautiful. Take Care, Beth

    Quote:thank hunny! I hate to do it because I waited a LOOONg time to get them and to have them hatch too!!! I do have a broody to hatch more but they are in a mixed pen right now when they are not free ranging so purity is not there:-( There is only two rood that could be dadies though hmmm.. the other is a FBCM what are the chances that the FBCM could be daddy to all eggs if I collect for a week????

    Oh I know! That was the hatch you were so bummed about! I'm trying to dowsize a bit too, and just focus on a few breeds. I'd love to get more I just dont have the coop space. And I also just go with my 3 hens that go broody lol. I stink at incubating too, and they do a much better job. Once I get homes for all the extra roos I have I will be happy lol. Hope someone takes them!!

    I know I have a ton of roos and it has come to the point where I would have to give them away! Ill process them before I do that:-(
