    Price is for 12+ eggs, could be as many as 15, depending on how well they lay prior to pickup.
    As of the morning of 1-4-15, I have 11 eggs collected
    , expecting a full dozen by the end of the day.

    **During January 2015, Will Barter These Eggs for Working Electric Blanket, ANY Size Bed Okay-Only One Blanket Needed, So First Person Who Wants to Trade Gets the Eggs for the Blanket and It MUST Work!**

    ~This is a Local Pick Up Price ONLY. I do not ship eggs at this time and probably won't again~
    ~Please bring your own egg cartons to put them in, sorry, I'm almost out~
    Cash Only, Please!


    CHECK WITH ME FOR AVAILABILITY, PLEASE


    There is a possibility of some chicks with feather stubs on the legs as one hen has feather stubs on the legs, so just an FYI. She passes that trait to about 1/4 of her progeny, usually the males, but she produces more pullets than cockerels.
    You will get some gorgeous birds. All these birds have fabulous conformation. Males are bull chested with great tail sets. The parent stock came from Boggy Bottom Bantams in S. GA.​

    ****Adding that the hens do tend to go broody, sometimes more than once in a year, so just in case this aspect of their personalities is important to you, thought I'd mention it....

    Photos are of all possible parents of the chicks:
    Possible sires of the chicks are:

    Porcelain alpha rooster, Aubrey
    Mille Fleur (visually), who is 3/4 porcelain, Spike


    Layers/mothers of the chicks could be:

    3 straight Mille Fleur hens
    3 hens who are visually mille fleur but split for porcelain
    1 porcelain hen

    The chicks themselves will be either visual milles or they will be porcelains, but they will all be splits, no straight milles, considering the males with the hens.


    Pick up at my home in Fannin County, GA, near the NC line.
    I am not shipping eggs at this time, but I live near the juncture of TN/NC/GA, so anyone in those three states within driving distance, this is a good chance for some hard to find hatching eggs.


    I continue to collect and rotate as they "age out". Check with me for availability~

    Is this local pick up only? Or you ship to anywhere? I'm confused

    As stated, this is for pick up only at the farm. No shipping at this time. I forgot to unclick the ship button at the top, but I did put it in the title as well as in the body of the message. Sorry for the confusion.

    Thanks for the compliment on my D'Anvers-glad you like them! Even back in the years when I did ship eggs, I never shipped during the holiday package rush. That is probably the worst time to try to get eggs delivered in a timely manner or have the pkg treated well, IMO.

    Suddenly, I was getting all these eggs from that coop and rather than just eat them, thought maybe someone who is within driving distance might want to come pick them up to hatch. [​IMG]

    There are 43+ eggs in the collection as of Dec. 27 (two full sets @ $8 each); will hold until Dec. 28th.

    ****I will not be available on December 27th until late in the day, so I extended the offer an extra day.

    The first set of eggs has been rotated out. One set of 22 eggs left. Will hold until January 1, then they'll be removed from the collection and refrigerated.

    So wish you were shipping these.

    I know, but if I was going to pack all these up and go to the trouble of shipping them, I'd charge more for the eggs. [​IMG] It's a royal pain to pack a box of hatching eggs for shipping-did it for years- and I've never packed bantam eggs before that I recall.

    I just cooked 14 of them for breakfast today, have another 2 dozen that no one claimed that go into the fridge tonight and have started another collection just today that already has 5 eggs in it. Surely someone within 1-2 hours of me in TN, NC or GA would love to have some of these little beauties. If not, they make good eating just like the LF eggs. [​IMG]

    Oh, no, you're not getting me to ship eggs again. Nice try, though. [​IMG]
