    Auction contents sold off line to a Garry Farm visitor today, so closing this auction!This auction is for have 10 Blue/Black/Splash Orpington eggs. I expect that there will be more BBSO eggs to add based on current laying patterns and will also include any extra Lavendar Orpington eggs not part of another order. This will be between 2 to 4 based on my best estimate.

    This order will ship the day that payment is received if it is received by 12:30 pm that day.

    These are lavendar orpingtons from our Hinkjc lavendar Project Orpington line....All the babies will be lavendars!

    My incubator's full and I really want these beautiful eggs to have an opportunity to be babies!!!!
    These Lavendar Project Orpington Eggs these are from a beautiful flock born from Hinkjc eggs. In this flock, there are only Lavendars!

    The 10+ BBSO eggs are coming from two separate BBSO pens. My lineage is from several of our BYC members including: Tuffoldhen, Miss Prissy, Bama Chick, Speckledhen and also Jim Cox, etc. One has Blue orpington rooster over blue hens. which will yield 50% blue, 25% black and 25% splash from that group, and my other pen has Black orpington rooster over splash hens and black hens. The splash/black combo will yield blue orpingtons and the splash splash will yield splash hens. If all hens contributed equally to the eggs to be sent, it would be expected that more blues then blacks will be hatched and a few splashes will be hatched. My splash hens are all first generation and are extremely well defined and speckled.

    Attached are a few photos from these pens:

    We breed toward the anticipated standards in our flocks

    Shipping and Payment Details:
    This order will ship the day that payment is received if it is received by 12:30 pm that day.

    The shipping shown above is computed on average based priority mail, confirmation delivery,packing materials, etc. if you want xpress or insurance, it will be more. If your shipping is actually higher, we'll take the loss in order to get these eggs to you promptly. We are very care about selecting, carefully packing, packing materials, priority shipping and confirmation delivery. Usually I compute the shipping based on your zip code but in order to get this package moving at the close of this sale, we are giving a FLAT rate on our shipping. We only ship within the continental US (48 states). This rate reflects priority mail and confirmation delivery. If you want insurance, it will be $2 more.

    If you are the successful winner of this auction, please paypal funds to us right after your winning the auction, so we can mail these eggs right away! (our PO ships in the afternoon) at [email protected] Pm us with any special mailing instructions, if you want to pick up at post office, (then we'll need a phone number), etc.

    We ship eggs the same way we would like to receive them. We bubble wrap each egg separately, putting in a regular box (not an egg carton) which is then cushioned and set in a larger box. These are not the prepaid priority boxes but we use the large boxes that can be ordered through USPS as the standard mailing box. In order to minimize the time that our eggs are on the country roads where we live, we take our eggs shipments to the post office where they know to set ours by themselves and stack on the top of all the boxes when it's time to ship! It's worth the gasoline, wear and tear on the car and our time to give your eggs the best possible chance of travel. Our mailing costs can often be higher than the prepaid boxes but we find that they arrive in better shape, so it's well worth the extra time, packing materials and shipping costs. Occasionally with a large order, we will use an even larger outside box. Even as carefully as we ship, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We do not guarantee the percentage of your hatch as the incubators temperature and humidity are very variable. We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible.

    We are a chemical free farm and farm full-time. We feed our animals with the best feed, sprouted grains, fresh grasses, treats from the garden and loving care. For more information about our farm, please visit our website http://www.freewebs.com/thegarryfarm/

    Please pm me with any questions/orders and we'd be so honored to fill your order. Thanks for your interest. Happy bidding and have a blessed day! Happy New Year! Nancy
