    Hi there! I've never bought eggs before, but I love these birds... I did research them a while back, but I have a few questions maybe you can refresh me....

    Have you ever shipped to Washington state?

    Are these birds winter layers, or do they take a break during the short days?

    Are they good or occasional broodies or should I have a 'bator handy for hatching?

    What are their temperaments like? - I have Salmon Faverolles, very docile and shy birds.... I wouldn't keep them together in confinement (separated by a fence), but when I let everyone out to free range, can they get along?

    Thank you

    Thank you for the info! They are really exotic..

    As for laying in the winter, I'm not terribly concerned about it, just a little curious - but I am glad they make good broodies (I love broodies!) They sound like real "characters"!

    Roosters generally do have to grow up together, no surprise there..... I'll mull this over and see if I can make something happen. - My brids are rotten too, they run after me and stand on the deck waiting for me to throw them something (of course I do ;)

    First I live in SC and was wondering if pickup is available? I am interested in at least 2 deals and I can pay by money order to get the extra eggs.
