    Don't click on the Buy It Now button.

    The Pens these will come from have the following colors,

    Pen 1:
    2 white hens
    2 hens that are either splash or splash lavender split. Will update tomorrow on the decision. Sorry for any confusion.
    1 white roo

    Pen 2:
    1 blue hen
    1 splash hen
    1 black hen
    1 black lavender splash roo

    Pen 3:
    1 dark partridge hen
    1 black breasted partridge roo

    They are gathered daily and kept in a cool dark room in a carton. I don't keep eggs for shipping longer than 4 days. Each egg will be bubble wrapped and the box filled with either peanuts, plastic bags or shredded paper. Could be all 3. I make sure the eggs don't move around to avoid them getting broken.

    I ship prority mail with delivery comfirmation and will send buyer the DC# when they are shipped.

    Below are a few pics of the adults:

    Look behind the white roo. Thats the best pic I can get of them. They always hide behind the other chickens or won't be still for anything when i'm pointing a camera.

    She is actually lighter in color than in the picture. The roo was shading her and the lighting isn't very good in the coop. When I bought the 2 hens the seller told me they where silvers. Then I thought they where splash and I found pictures on Fawke's Feather Farm site and they look almost alike. Mine are a tad darker. If I'm wrong on the color please let me know. Somebody else asked me for a pic of them too and I said the same. Please let me know if I'm wrong. I've never had any this color before so it's new to me.

    Is this just a mix of the eggs or can you pick what color?

    Quote:You can take your pick of the bbs or whites but I only have 1 partridge hen so the eggs would get too old to ship if somebody wanted just partridge. I can add what she lays though if wanted.

    The pic of the one behind the white roo looks like a splash not a paint. It would help if you got better pics of the paints. I would be interested to with better pics of the paints. [​IMG]
