    We have been blessed with so many friends who helped us with lovely purebred Lavendar cockerals and young pullets and hens... (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. We love where we are with this project bird and we plan to be working with them for years...AND we owe a great deal to BYC'er as well as others for helping us assemble this flock!!!!!!!

    Anticipated ship is week of January 2, subject to timely payment & any laying pattern changes, which is not expected! 8+ eggs means you will receive 8 eggs and more if they are available. By the way, the Garry farm will be moving down some Lavendar Ameraucanas into the last 3 days of hatch tonight so I'll keep you posted on numbers and percentages! Okay just checked on the Lavendar Ameraucanas due for lock down.... 11 were put in the incubator....Oldest was 11 days old!!! You will be getting young eggs not the older ones we hatch for ourselves......Of those 11, all 11 were fertile and filling out nicely....They were put in the brooder tray for hatching!!!! Come babies.............! Granny Nancy ones to give you some love! [​IMG]

    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 8+ 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]

Nancy (PS for all of you who prayed, sent notes, cards, emails, called, helped at the farm, etc;, when I was in the hospital, thank you so much.....God is good and great all the time and I'm feeling so much better and am home again after being so many States away and away from the hubby, farm and all those animals, veggies, milk and eggs I love and ONE Entire Hatch I missed.. Praying that there will be continued healing in 2012!)

    Many of you have asked exactly how we ship eggs. Here's what we have developed at the Garry Farm after 5 years of shipping eggs!

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=8875

    It's worth the extra time, materials, gas/wear/tear on our old cars, to give these eggs the best chance we know how to become eggs. I take a long time to wrap these eggs and then package them every so carefully. I think of the distance they will travel and pray for their travelling safety and for the household that will receive them.

    Feel free to copy our system and make it yours, but if you list any pictures or our description of how it's wrapped, please do give credit to The Garry Farm.

    Thanks and have a blessed Day! Nancy
