    Hi I know this is short notice and if it's not possible I completely understand. Is there any way possible to get a dozen cobb eggs and have them shipped either Saturday or Monday? I can send paypal immediately.

    Sincerely

    Sharon

    Hi,
    Are these Cobb 500 Broilers, if they are please let me know the cost per dozen. I'd be interested in raising them again.

    Could you give us some more information on your hatching eggs? You said they were Cobb broilers, right? How did you get hold of the eggs?

    Ok, you do realize, though, that when you rebreed hybrids you do not get the same bird, right? Broilers do not breed true, so you cannot use the eggs from them to get the same bird like a 'purebreed'.

    Quote:Seems like they may not hatch the same as the originals, but not sure it's false advertising at least on this thread as she didn't put that they were pure, only if people wanted eggs from her broiler breed of chickens and then later it's stated how she gets those eggs, but again, she never said they were pure or would hatch pure, etc....

    Just a thought as far as what's actually being sold here vs what's thought of as false advertising... ?
