6+ Rare Black Sumatra Gamefowl Hatching Eggs Show Lines

Discussion in 'Buy Sell Auction - Archives' started by Rare Feathers Farm, Jul 15, 2010.

  1. Rare Feathers Farm is proud to offer:

    6+ Hatching eggs from my rare breeds flock. These eggs are from my standard Black Sumatra pen. These are QUALITY birds from two select breeders, combined into one breeding program (mine!) None of my birds have come from hatcheries. My breeding rooster has three spurs per leg (I have to keep them trimmed to protect my hens, though).

    Both sexes have bright yellow soles of their feet.

    PLEASE NOTE: This line is an exhibition one, NOT hatchery stock. These birds have not only been chosen for their type but also for their temperament. These are NOT "fighting lines" and are sold for legal purposes only.

    One of my pullets won RESERVE BEST OF BREED in March at the Cascade Spring Poultry Show in Monroe, Washington!

    So far I have 100% fertility and 100% hatch rate with these here on the farm and 85% with shipped eggs! These birds have very friendly, highly intelligent temperaments. They are very curious, too. They are a joy to have around and the girls lay right through the hottest part of the summer!

    FAST PAYMENT IS CRITICAL IN GETTING THESE MAILED OUT IN A TIMELY MANNER!

    That said, if you need extra time to pay or you want eggs but are not quite ready--please order from my website and let me know. I'm more than happy to make arrangements for a later ship date on non-auction eggs!

    The eggs are fertile & shipped fresh!

    Fine Print:

    I guarantee fresh and fertile eggs of the breed auctioned. However, I cannot guarantee hatch-ability due to many variables out of my control after the eggs leave my farm--such as shipping & handling, incubation equipment, and incubation methods.

    Please remember I am not a 24-hour fast food place where you can order and expect service immediately! I am doing this as a hobby and I work as fast and efficiently as the time allows. I do have a 40+ hour per week "real job." I cannot guarantee specific availability dates, as I cannot guarantee the laying rate of each of the many breeds that I have. I will get to each and every person that places an order - in the order the date that I receive that order through the web store.

    PAYMENT AND SHIPPING POLICY:
    PayPal only please, NO E-CHECKS! Eggs are TIME-SENSITIVE & CANNOT SIT AROUND FOR A WEEK WAITING FOR CHECKS TO CLEAR without comprising hatch-ability! Please READ THIS & UNDERSTAND PRIOR TO BIDDING!

    I ONLY SHIP WITHIN THE U.S. SORRY, I CANNOT SHIP TO HAWAII, PR OR ASIA, EITHER!

    Payment must be received within 2 days of auction end or item will be re-listed & negative feedback WILL be left! Sorry, but eggs are time-sensitive.

    GOOD LUCK & HAPPY HATCHING!

    When you say they've been bred for their temperament. What exactly is their temperament?

My first batch of Sumatras were NOT nice...the roo flogged me & the hens were spazzes...I got rid of those & with careful, selection of the nicest/calmest birds...I now have sweet ones that so far have been passing that onto their chicks. The rooster I have housed with other roosters (but no hens) and after a quick fight & him "winning" he was fine with everything...
     
  4. Oh and they all eat out of my hand. The hens will fly up onto my arm and get treats. They are all very friendly & curious.

    Ahh I see. So they're not really gamefowl like they used to be (most Sumatras now aren't anyway). That was mainly what I wanted to know, if it were I'd be real tempted to get a couple dozen. Have always wanted to find them as they were and preserve them like they used to be instead of now.

    Too bad it's so hot here. The eggs would never survive the heat just getting delivered here.

    Your sumatras are spectacular!

    (qoute)- the hens were spazzes

    LOL:lol: I thought i was the only one to use that word...hahahahaha. very funny!

    I agree you have beautiful birds and I have been eyeing them for quite some time. I have been wanting another specific breed, and sumatras fasinate me. They are just beautiful. I have seen many, but yours are by far the best I have seen yet to date. Definatly will be purchasing eggs from you in the near future!

    Well, I did have a cull for a few years and I think you'd have no problem having gamey ones from this line...I handle them from hatching and don't put up with meanness. I just don't have any reason to have birds I cannot handle safely or cannot trust when I turn my back, LOL I did have to put cardboard up at shows because they'd get amped up. [​IMG]
     
  9. Oh and my Sumatra roo used to pull my Sussex's comb through the wire & hang on it like a pit bull until I put up smaller gage wire, LOL
