    I have for your consideration 8+ hatching eggs from my beautiful Silver Laced Cochin bantam pen. (Egg code SLC) I started with the pair Bruce and Lacie I bought as chicks. They have matured into 2 beautiful birds and I have hatched and sold beautiful chicks just like them all summer. I've kept 4 really nice pullets which now have been laying for several weeks now. I have several eggs in the incubator so I have confirmed fertility. All are nice type and color with heavy foot feathering. The pullets still have a little filling out to do but I think at 5 months old they look awesome! Please make payment by Paypal with [email protected]

    At Lucky Pickens Farm we’ve been raising poultry for over 50 years and strive to raise high quality birds for show or just for pets. All birds on our farm are blood tested Pullorum/Typhoid clean. We see that our birds are kept happy and healthy by giving them the very best feed and TLC daily! We strive to breed to the Standard of Perfection on each breed we raise and all are purebred and kept in individual breeding pens away from predators. We feed a high quality, high protein all natural game bird breeder pellet with vitamins and minerals in the water daily to insure high fertility. We also feed a little scratch grains, Calf Manna and veggie treats from the garden daily. We LOVE spoiling our birds and it shows! You can see more photos of them on our website below. We are always happy to answer any questions about them and if you see some you like feel free to email me if you wish to place a special order of any variety you might like.

    I have Fibromyalgia and can't work. My chickens are my therapy that keep me going, selling a few hatching eggs helps me buy feed for my little feathered loved ones. I gather several times a day to keep the eggs from getting to hot or to cold to stay fresh and fertile for you. They are dated and turned three times a day and stored in a temperature controlled room to assure you the best possible hatch. All eggs are coded on which pen they come from and are no more than four-five days old when shipped. This insures the eggs are stronger to handle the shipping. Eggs are usually fairly clean, but may contain occasional soiling. I do not wash eggs but will brush of excess soiling if present. Washing can contaminate the eggs and may decrease hatch rate. Eggs are wrapped individually in a long strip of bubble wrap then nestled and secured in crumpled newspaper and box is clearly marked FRAGILE. I have found if I don't put Hatching Eggs on the box they get treated better also, but will gladly mark them that way if you so want. I've had very good success shipping this way. I pack and ship they way I would like my eggs shipped with lots of packing! We have had an excellent hatch rate on our farm ourselves this year as well as with our shipped eggs. However, we cannot guarantee your hatch rate due to circumstances out of our control. Rough postal handling and incubator mishaps will make perfectly fertile eggs not develop or hatch. Purchasing shipped hatching eggs is a risk. Please be understanding and know this when purchasing hatching eggs.

    **THANK YOU and Best of Luck hatching from Lucky Pickens Farm!**

    Awww! I wish they had been laying when I wanted eggs a few months ago from you. As of now I have sold every SLC I had so that is no longer an option for me. They are pretty birds!

    YOU both I really do love them, they are just so sweet too! To bad you sold yours, but you can't keep them all can we Lol! Can't believe no one has bid on them yet, like you everyone had been asking me for them and now that I have them no one wants them. Oh well guess that's the way it is sometimes lol! Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday![​IMG]

    I want them but I am broke for at least the next month. How long do you think they will lay well enough for you to send eggs? Do you ship through the winter?

    I wish I could bid on these but I live in MI where it starts snowing in November and does not stop till late March. Their lacing is pretty clean.I am almost finished with my 12-14 chicken coop though and I am trying to get rid of some ameraucanas and welsummers if anyone is interested. They would pulverize my nice white bantam cochins. Will you have eggs in January?

    Hi Luckypickens: Lacie and Bruce are so pretty - wish I could bid on your eggs! I've been hoping my partridge Frizzle and wheaten Cochin would go broody again soon so they can hatch some beautiful silver laced chickies, but they're just not in the mood right now. We're in Florida, and August was just terrible for heat and rain this year, but I'm betting as the weather improves my girls will be more accommodating, and we'll be in touch:)

    Hi Lucky Pickens!
    Just wanted to say that the eggs I got from you earlier this summer are the most beautiful birds, frizzle cochins. We got two frizzles, a black & white and a gray, both roos, the other 6 that hatched are pullets. We will have baby frizzles next year! Wish we had more room for more kinds!
