    Can't ship to HI, AK, VA, or anywhere that requires addl paperwork.

    NPIP TN-303

    I am not hatching anymore this year. I have a mixed group at the moment as we are building a new chicken barn. I have hatched nothing but white from this pen but of course anything is possible. I am not totally satisfied with foot feathering and I am having a problem. Over 50% of the chicks are hatched spraddle-legged. I don't know if it is something I am doing during the incubation or what. All the chicks are corrected with band-aids and look fine after a few days. I would like someone to test hatch a group and keep me posted on their results. I'd like to know about the hatch from your picking them up at the PO to a couple months old. Please promise to commit or don't bid.

    Shipping $15.
    Starting the bid at $5. Increase by $1. Paypal payments accepted only.

    Standard stuff applies: No refunds, not responsible for the post office, yada, yada.

    can't figure out how to edit the title so :

    should be at least 6

    Bidding ends 4/4/12 at 6 AM CST

    I would be willing to pay the shipping and hatch a couple out for you. Ive been hatching for 27 years, so I am pretty confident in my incubator skills. Let me know if you would like some help. This does sound like an incubator issue though, especially since you can splint them up and correct the legs.
