    Oh yeah, I read that, just forgot to go back and reread.

    Are they heritage or hatchery?

    I am just offering eggs here locally if anyone wanted some. I have never shipped, and figure that is expensive for barnyard mixes. I could try shipping if you pay postage and a couple of bucks for supplies.

    I wouldn't know whose lines were who's. I don't really keep up with the heritage thing. I was mostly wondering because I've found most hatchery RIR's are ( roosters) mean and I've seen hens that are mean also.

    Also I like the deeper red shade of the heritage that I've seen in person.



    You can ship a Priority box I usually used the medium sized box, used to cost $14.95 as full as you cans tiff them of course that's not always a lot because if the stuffing you need to keep them from breaking). I usually charged about $16.00 fir shipping. I used a lot if newspapers ( picked them up free) and old bubble wrap from shipped stuff I'd orders. I also had a job at one time where I could recycle that bubble wrap ( keep it instead if throwing it away).

    You'd have to figure out about what it would cost though for the stuff to pack them up. If you can figure out something let me know might can swing a few bucks.

    We had 25 hatchery RIR, 3 were roos. 1 was lame and sort of sweet, 1 was dominant and MEAN AS H***, when #1 died (in the line of duty, to a stray dog) #2 became MEAN AS H*** TOO! They would sneak up behind you and "WHAM!" gave my mum a giant bruise on the back of her leg, and if she hadn't been wearing thick jeans there would have been lots of blood I imagine. Only Gimpy ever stayed sweet. They have all since went down the food chain. [​IMG]
