    Hello, I ordered the best of the blue breeds from Gabbard Farms on ebay. I was wondering has anyone ordered from them? Hatch rates, shipping? Thanks for any information [​IMG]

    I ordered from them as well. I separate batches of eggs and neither did that well with hatching.

    I ordered a pure breed assortment first of this year. My hatch rate was not very good, 2 chicks out of 24 eggs. Then one chick was marked one thing, but come out looking different. I sent pictures and did get reimbursed on that chick, but They did not seem to know how it got marked wrong. It was marked black Orpington it come out yellow, they said maybe blue Orpington, turned out buff..I'm guessing buff Orpington. [​IMG] The other chick that hatched was marked right though. IMP it is just a game of chance with shipped eggs.
