    Incubator is full! This is for this week sales. There will be a minimum of 10 Blue/Black/Splash Orpington eggs. I expect that there will be more SO eggs to add based on current laying patterns and will also sell you any extra Lavendar Orpington eggs collected and not part of another order. This will be a minimum of 2 and may be even higher.

    This order will ship on March 7 if payment is received immediately after the auction and if hens continue current laying patterns. If there is any change in laying patterns, I'll contact the winner.

    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!

    Shipping Details:

    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:
    If you are the winner, please paypal to [email protected] as soon as possible after the close of the auction. and .pm us with any special mailing instructions, if you want to pick up at post office, (then we'll need a phone number), etc. Please be sure to put in a pm to us your paypal email so we can easily match payments with your winning auction!

    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.

    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.thegarryfarm.webs.com/

    We also have feed back in the new system as you'll see above

    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!Nancy

    I ordered the BBS Orp eggs and bonus Lav eggs, and Nancy wrapped the eggs impeccably. Every single egg is intact, and in excellent condition. Wonderful lady to work with and she is very professional. My eggs are in the bator and can't wait to see how they turn out.

    Sheila I cannot wait to see the babies either and you are so kind to take the time to stop by and post!!!!!!! I am keeping some of my hatch from the last and yes they will be blue black and Splash orpingtons. I love to select and wrap and pray over these eggs every so carefully....I think about the household where they are bound and pray for all the members of it that I know. I imagine you openining the package carefully and tenderly putting them in the egg carton to rest. Tending over them like good mothers and fathers. And then always looking over their needs adjusting temps and humidity over the days and then those precious hatching days of such stress and excitement and then the blessed arrivals...How I wish i could be at each hatching of our eggs, but so many give me reports and then pictures which makes smile and say,,,,,all that work was worth it...(Most of you don't know that I was praying through all the hatch and continue to pray for them for years and for you..... it's one of my greater pleasures.... Well, I share too much, just Thank you Sheila..........Hugs, love and prayer forever. Nancy

    For more information about how we ship, please see our BYC page. We've been shipping for years and find that this method takes the longest in our time, but it gives the best result of shipping intact eggs! Feel free to copy the method as you ship eggs, but should you copy any part of the document, please give credit to The Garry Farm, bargain, and thanks!!!! Hope this is of help to you who ship and those who are interested in eggs. Nancy
