    I don't know where I post this, But I want to get a few of each of these eggs to hatch In our bator. All the auctions were for massive quantites of eggs when we just want a few of each. Quality doesnt matter, Meaning pure breed or Show quality. We just like the colors and color eggs of these birds. We are very responsible and Already have homes lined up for roo's or hens we cannot keep. Please PM me if you know someone I can contact or have one of these types and are willing to ship a few to Ct. One more last thing. When can they start shipping eggs? below is the list of birds we liked




    Leghorn
    Silkie
    Polish
    Gold laced Wyandotte
    Olive Egger
    Welsummer

    A really good hatch of shipped eggs is about 50%, so you probably need more than just 2 of each.

    Shipping is going to be about $15, no matter how many eggs you get, so you probably need to find a breeder who has several of the breeds you want.

    You know, you have to give the members here more than one hour to answer you. Nobody is waiting around hoping they can help you. We all have other things to do and are not on the computer 24 hours a day.

    Some of the big commercial hatcheries sell eggs, so you might inquire to see if they will send you a mixed batch with the breeds you want.

    Try posting on the Ct thread and see if you can locate the breeds that you want within driving distance. Hatchability of shipped eggs can be all over the place so locally purchased eggs may work better for you. Good luck on locating eggs to hatch.

    Post an add on your farm and garden local craigslist. You never know who has what breeds around you! I just ran across an ad for someone local to me with pretty nice looking langshans--who knew?
