    $20 for a dozen which includes shipping costs- UPS with tracking #.

    Golden Comets are known as great layers, who mature extreemly fast, and are cute to boot! They are sex-linked so at hatching you can tell males from females just by their color (males are yellow at hatching, hens are red).

    Road Island Reds are such gorgeous birds in my oppinon! [​IMG] They lay nice dark brown eggs, that are on the decent size, and some of these birds lay double yolkers!

    You can get a dozen of one, or the other, or 6 of one and 6 of the other whatever you'd like we can do!

    I accept money orders or cashiers checks. Birds are laying 2 dozen a day, so order anytime and I'll mail them out on mondays/tuesdays or wednesdays and will contact you with the tracking number once I recieve it.

    Great birds for egg laying. I have my own batch in the bator now (even a double yolker) can't wait to see the lil cuties!

    PM me for address. [​IMG]

    Question on the sexlnks. What is the breed for the hen you are using and what is the breed for the rooster you are using to make your Golden comets?

    They're also known as a red sex link, red star, etc.
