    Help! Every time I think I have a plan, I find I can't pull it off. I am all set to hatch, I just need eggs. I had no idea they were so precious. Maybe y'all should charge more cause they are harder to come by than diamonds, that is for sure! It seems that a small flock is easier to raise than it is to come by, if you you have particular birds in mind. [​IMG] Does anyone have a source for a few Faverolles and Austrolorpe eggs? Maybe Wellsummers instead of the Austrolorpes? Does anyone know anything about this seller and birds - syl1490 on eggbid? I think I may have a Frizzled Cochin breeder with reds and whites and I have ordered Fluffinstuff's Silkies (Hope it helps with the barn!). To complete our family, I just need these two standards. I can't imagine what adoptive parents feel as they wait for what must seem forever and get the run around and mounds of paperwork on top of it all. I can barely contain myself for this!
    Hope someone has answers so they all hatch together!

    When I had Salmon Faverolles I got them from Murray McMurray. They were nice birds.
    Sand Hill Preservation Center has them. If you go to Eggbid they have sources to. There is a bantam size available also.

    Hi Florida Chick, Can I buy just 6? I can Paypal tonight!
    Maybe there is hope after all! If this works for you, I'll be one happy chickie momma.... I'll pay for all of them of do you think that in order to get two hens that I need 15. I don't want to waste eggs and am not sure I can find homes for too many babies. Let me know what you think as well as your paypal info.

    Look up Duane Urch for the salmon faverolles, I think I read somewhere he may sell hatching eggs as well as chicks. Many of his birds are show quality. I have two from him that I adore.

    Thank you Starfroggie, I e-mailed Duane Urch. My fingers are crossed. And thanks also to Florida chick, I' let you know how they survived their first flight! And Banter, I can't say I have a good reason for not buying from a big hatchery. I may look into Ideal yet. Thank you.
