    SHIPPING INCLUDED


    WE ARE NPIP & AI TESTED KY-218

    THIS IS FOR 6 + EXTRAS IF AVAILABLE TO HELP WITH ANY SHIPPING MISHAPS BUT I CANNOT GUARANTEE WHAT HAPPENS TO THE EGGS ONCE THEY LEAVE MY HANDS TO THE POSTAL SYSTEM.


    These can be picked up too. We are located 90 miles south of Lexington KY. shipping is priority mail.

    I DO HAVE 4 BLACK COPPER MARANS HENS IN THIS PEN NOW. YOU MAY GET ONE OF THEIR EGGS IF I MISS THEM AND YOU CAN EXPECT BLUE COPPER CHICKS IF YOU DO!!!

    These are from our pen of Blue Marans. We have french Blue roo over french & english blue hens. You will get both clean and feather shanks on your chicks. There are pullets in this pen so you can expect pullet eggs. These pullets are our F1's and beautiful and laying darker than the original parents in the first generation. The F2's are extremely cute and the oldest are 3 months old!

    The lines are predominately Bev Davis lines.
    Take advantage of the discounted price. They have been selling for much more. Our birds are laying like crazy! We also have a waiting list for these Blues so I will not have too many of these auctions in order to fill those orders.
    The eggs are not as dark as the black coppers and we are working on that with these birds.

    PAYMENT IS PAYPAL ONLY, NO ECHECKS.
    MY PAYPAL ADDRESS IS [email protected]

    PLEASE SEND ANY SPECIAL SHIPPING NEEDS WHEN YOU PAY. ALSO MAKE A NOTE OF THE AUCTION AND YOUR USER NAME PLEASE. THANK YOU! THIS HELPS WITH KNOWING WHO YOU ARE. LOL

    PAYMENT IS DUE IMMEDIATELY AFTER AUCTION ENDS. ANY DELAYS WILL EFFECT YOUR SHIPPING DATE AND HATCH RATE. THESE EGGS COLLECTED FOR THIS AUCTION WILL BE SENT. IF YOU CANNOT PAY FOR THEM PLEASE DO NOT BID. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE TO YOUR HATCH RATE DUE TO POSTAL HANDLING OR YOUR INCUBATION METHODS. ROUGH HANDLING CAN KEEP YOUR EGG FROM DEVELOPING ALONG WITH YOUR INCUBATION METHOD. PLEASE UNDERSTAND HATCHING EGGS ARE A RISK. SOMETIMES YOU WILL GET A VERY GOOD HATCH, SOMETIMES A FEW WILL HATCH AND SOMETIMES NONE WILL HATCH.

    I HAVE BEEN HAVING A 95%-100% HATCH HERE AT HOME. SO THEY ARE FERTILE. THERE ARE MANY FACTORS THAT CAN HAPPEN WITH SHIPPED EGGS TO KEEP THEM FROM DEVELOPING. IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH THAT PLEASE DO NOT BID. I HAVE BOUGHT SEVERAL HATCHING EGGS AND HAD GREAT HATCHES AND NONE DEVELOP. I UNDERSTAND IT'S A RISK AND DID NOT ASK FOR REPLACEMENTS AS THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES.

    PLEASE READ FEEDBACK TO MORE RECENT FEEDBACK ON PAST AUCTIONS.

    PICS ARE OF ORIGINAL PARENT BIRDS.

    THE FIRST PIC SHOWS A SPLASH ROO ON THE LEFT. THIS WAS WHEN THEY WERE STILL WITH THE SPLASH. THEY HAVE NOT BEEN WITH THE SPLASH SINCE JULY NOW. THIS IS AN ALL BLUE MARANS PEN. YOU CAN EXPECT TO GET BLUE/BLACK AND SPLASH FROM THIS PEN.

    Quote:The picture of the hen second to last looks like she has some slight barring... Is there a chance she is a cuckoo cross further out?

    it's the same hen in that pic, the previous pic and the last pic with the roo. when you see them in person they don't show any signs of barring. However when they were with the splash I did get some cuckoo and blue cuckoo roos from them. since being separated none of the chicks have had any barring.
    I need to take some new pics of the hens.

    Is this auction for pure blue Marans or will other colors pop up? You mention blue coppers so that doesn't fit the auction heading...

    Do you have photos of the eggs?

    Quote:I have just put some black copper hens in with this roo and am taking those eggs out. if by chance I miss one I wanted to let everyone know there may be a chick that would be blue copper. I always add extra eggs when the hens cooperate and with these and my splash there have been up to 15-18 eggs shipped at times in the 10+ auctions. more than plenty I think to make up for a possible missed black copper egg
    course I don't see anything wrong with a blue copper. [​IMG]
    the normal colors will pop up with breeding blues anyway. blues don't breed true. you can expect blue, splash and black from a pure blue pen.
