    Whew! I've been watching all the posts about people wanting Blue Orpingtons and just about jumping out of my seat waiting for a password to get on here.

    I've been selling on ebay and eggbid so I'm not completely new to this. I'm just getting fed up with the extra fees and people bidding but not paying....grrrr!

    I offer 6 eggs at a time so I can keep them fresh but I'll include any extras for no charge. $20 flat charge includes shipping and handling.

    I also have a small pen of frizzle cochin bantams, I can include 4 of those eggs for and additional $5 if you want.

    Pictures of the birds can be viewed at- http://andersonsoakcreekranch.com/poultry.html

    I breed Blue Orps, too, and cant keep up with the demand for hatching eggs. Where did you get your original stock? How long have you been breeding them? How many rooster/hens do you have, if you dont mind me asking?

    Lovely web site! I was just looking on ebay for some blue orp eggs the other day and couldn't find any.

    I am in love with your silver appleyard ducks, though! [​IMG]

    I forgot to mention, these will be blue, black and splash chicks.

    I don't have very many which is why I only like to ship 6 at a time, I really wish I could do more....next year.

    I have one blue roo, three blue hens and a black hen. I get pretty close to half blue chicks. Next year I hope to keep a pen of black with splash so I can offer all blues.

    Where did they come from...I'm embarrased to say, I'm not sure! A friend of mine put out an add that he wanted some chickens and shortly after he got them, he decided he didn't want them. Needless to say I was quite willing to take these off his hands. [​IMG]

    They look very nice to me but you can check them out for yourself on my website. Just a note, it was windy the day I took the pictures so some feathers may appear to be a little ruffled.

    Hey hcammack....this gal would live in a shed if it meant being able to live in the country, have land and critters. As a matter of fact, I live in a small cabin in the country with lots of critters!! LOL

    awww, Henry,
    If I was younger and single I'd live in your shed! I'm in the barn most of the time anyway!

    Those beautiful Appleyards are no longer making eggs for me. The drake was killed a couple weeks ago by some predator.[​IMG]

    I have a bunch of their babies running around though...too cute! I'm waiting on a shipment of Appleyard ducklings so I hope to have more of them next year too...also, I just got some bantam silver appleyards from Holderread's
