    We have been blessed with so many friends who helped us with lovely purebred Lavendar cockerals and young pullets. (They are now full grown, and no more pullets!) I had just about "given up hope", after so many attempts to secure good lineage eggs, babies,birds, but several wonderful donors shared some of their flock with us here on The Garry Farm... We have several Bloodlines in our group including Harry Shaffer, John Blehm and pips and peeps.

    Anticipated ship is week of January 16, subject to timely payment & any laying pattern changes, which is not expected!
    Some pictures of flock:

    This one's name is Saphira and photo was take with flash on, so she appears much lighter than she is:

    There have been several instances lately of folks borrowing photos without express permission from The Garry Farm.... I will be working on watermarks again this fall to try to deter this....Please do not borrow our photos without our written permission. It took so much of our farm effort and time to bring our birds to their present confirmation and in some cases over an hour or even two to get a useable photo shot... I'm sure you understand! Please pm if this is not clear.

    Thanks to all who have been helpful in this project for our farm! Now we have hens and roosters too and the new Project begins....I'm so excited! You might wonder what a project this is..... We will begin working with the egg coloration which is more of a blue green instead of the full green and we'll be doing some work on body size as well.

    The 6+ means I will include extra eggs if available the day of shipping.

    For this listing we accept Paypal, no e checks please as they delay sending of eggs! Shipping in 48 US continental states.

    The shipping is average based on our shipping rates. We ship eggs in the same way we would like to receive them. We bubble wrap each egg separately, putting in a regular box (not an egg carton) which is then cushioned and set in a larger box. These are not the prepaid priority boxes but we use the large boxes that can be ordered through USPS as the standard mailing box. Our mailing costs can often be higher than the prepaid boxes but we find that they arrive in better shape, so it's well worth the extra time, packing materials and shipping costs. Occasionally with a large order, we will use an even larger outside box. After carefully preparing you package we drive your eggs to the Post Office, where our local post office sets the egg shipments to the side to protect them. They are then placed on the truck on the top of all the other boxes! Even as carefully as we ship, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We do not guarantee the percentage of your hatch your hatch as many factors such as the incubators temperature and humidity, etc are very variable. .We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible.

    Payment for this listing will need to be through Paypal in order to ship on time!
    If you also want to place an order for Easter Egger eggs, please just pm me.
    Paypal address is [email protected]

    You sure about that Bev Davis part? I wouldn't really associate her with Ameraucanas, let alone lavenders. [​IMG]

    I won't ask about lines, but I will drool over the handsome Sharkie and his beautiful flock of Lavs!

    So happy to see these eggs at the Garry Farm!!! [​IMG]

    THANKs for noticing my typo, I was looking at her web site minutes before posting this ad. I guess my brain misfired. Well with the 16 daily medicines, I take a day it should be crystal clear but really I'm neither as strong as I used to be physically or mentally, but I'm poking along and that's good enough for me......The pips and peeps lineage came from my friend Lisa in North Georgia..Gainesville, GA. What I lack in size and strength, I try to make up in determination.....

    Keep on bidding and have a blessed day!

    Nancy can we see some pics of the eggs and the blacks you're using for improvement? Who's blacks/splits do you have? Looking for somebody in particular.

    Some egg photos:

    (Flash was on in both shoots, will take more photos in natural light and will need to find my camera manual on how to disable the flash.

    I have lavendar ameraucanas full grown or nearly full grown that were a result of a trade, or a gift, or a purchase. My split blacks were the result of a swap of my lavendar orpingtons for this individuals split black lavendar ameraucanas because the farm had no lavendar ameraucanas that were laying at that time. I believve they were in a moult at that time.

    I have split black ameraucanas that I got as hatching eggs, and they are not in my pen at present as they are still growing up and I cannot determine if they are boy or girl at this time.
    I need to touch base with the person I got these from as to the lineage on those. I emailed earlier and am awaiting a reply.

    For those that are bidding on these, please know that lavendar ameracaunas are not approved at present as a color as relates to the feathering. I hope someday they will be but for now I'm enjoying them.

    I got into these as I just love the color lavendar, we have lavendar hydrangeas, and lavendar in the herb garden, lavendar orpingtons, lavendar ameraucanas, and lavendar oils I make..and even lavendar ice cream and lavendar herb bread..... I think you have the idea:) .And I just love the egg coloring...although I hope over time I can work to get it a bluer shad.

    Amy, I will first start with two medium sized chicken tractors and grow out babies from the different lines and then I'll be putting really good body conforming blacks with them....As I said this is a project and as we know it will take several years in the making...... I'm just so happy to have an opportunity to work with these.

    I need to rename myself "Love my Lavs" .... I welcome all your questions and interest and to all who sent us compliments, encouragement, support, guidance, eggs or birds or interest in future orders...Thank you so much.... I hope to only "pay it forward". Have a blessed day. Nancy

    PS we do farm full time and please leave a pm as you get a chance. Even though this is the slow season for many, our farm, is still working on many projects, building new bee hives, repurposing chicken coops, changing over our brooding system, and now our big orders for the Bakery during the holiday season.

    Best bet is get good blacks from as many bloodlines as possible. Blacks have some of the best egg color anyway. Would really hate to see these end up like the lav orpingtons - exploited and never improved on until there are tons of junk birds out there. [​IMG]

    Quote:So, Amy do you have any Black Amer. roos for sale??? I'll be starting a split group as I mentioned..... I have facebooked you that question. Also, since I'll be at several chicken shows if I can ever get my health back again.... Maybe will be able to pick up a few reallly good ones there. Where did you get your Black Ameraucana roos from?????

    Well I digress from the listing....Folks, bid often and enjoy....Like I said, I love a good project and am super excited....AND I love my Lavs!

    Time to collect about 80 eggs, anyone needs eggs? [​IMG]

    I've got Garner and Smith black hens, but I need a good boy too. There are some really good ameraucana breeders with quality blacks right here on BYC. [​IMG]
