This guarantee does not include the replacement eggs that are lost, stolen, or returned to me.

    It also does not guarantee that you will win at shows with these birds. There are a lot of factors that influence the chances of winning at shows, including nutrition, condition of birds, and the size of the shows.

    I just hatched 13 of 18 of these eggs and the chicks are gorgeous, fuzzy balls of energy. Not a single egg was broken in my parcel and I am so happy with the babies. [​IMG]

    Do you have an updated picture of your main rooster? You have had the rooster you show a picture of for several years now.

    Quote:Yes, I do. He looks exactly the same, however. I don't think it will change anything.

    Quote:In this heat, the cochins are not the best of layers. I couldn't collect enough "good" eggs to send out with good conscience. I've actually got all of my black cochin hens with a lav orp roo at the moment to work on a large fowl lavender cochin... or something. [​IMG]

    Can you show some pictures of your new rooster? I'm very interested in getting some SQ buff orps. I'm looking for the even buff color. What I have seen in shows here is a more flat back not the U shape of hatchery birds. And are you going to be shipping even through the heat of the summer?
