Super Important Notice I will not be offering hatching eggs next year. I'm very sorry for all of you who have PMed me about getting on next years waiting list. We are making some major chance to our little farm here and I don't have the confidence that I'll have things set in place for next year. If something changes I'll let everyone know (perhaps you should be sure to subscribe to this thread). Also, I won't feel bad if you who got eggs from me offered them on BYC (or elsewhere). This stock is all amazing and the more stewards the better. Again, I'm soooooo sorry. P.S. Next year will be like I'm on vacation....what will I do with all my extra time! This is the old listing just so you can understand what has happened... Hello everybody... Hatching eggs are $48 per dozen plus shipping (Usually around $15). I ship out eggs Monday through Wednesday. I always try to send a few extras. PM me to let me know what you want and when you want it. And we can see what we can do... Feel free to mix and match. Here is the list of what I have available at this time: Huastec Sweet Potato Quechua Colloncas All are winter hearty. # 1 - Huastec The Huastec is one of the rarest breeds in the world. It's an ancient black-boned fowl from southern Mexico and Ecuador. The Huastec produces lots of medium to large eggs, is calm, confiding, personable and fairly quiet. Whereas the breeds of some roosters, like the Leghorn, tend to fiercely exclude other roosters from access to hens and shelter, the Huastec is a cooperative breeder. They can be run in braces; three to five roosters to accompany a little bevy of hens. Each rooster has a favorite hen and vise versa. The Huastec is incredibly cold hardy and make wonderful parents. The roosters are just as attentive to the chicks as the hens. # 2 - Sweet Potato Quechua This is an antique South American relative of the North American Ameraucana. Our strains have Marquesas Island Junglefowl (Gallus temmincki Gould) ancestry as well as old Peruvian Indian village hen genetics. Some Sweet Potato Quechua produce unusually blue or turquoise eggs and some will produce tea yellow or pale pinkish brown eggs. Most lay a pale aqua or stone hued egg. Being a fantastic layer of medium eggs. It is often an even more consistent winter layer than the Ameraucana and it’s still more cold hardy. This unusual breed is a great forager, unusually sweet tempered and lovely. Sweet Potato Quechuas make fine mothers. They are an unusually striking fowl that don’t ruin a garden. The roosters have a musical crow and are fairly quiet compared with most breeds. # 3 - Colloncas (very nice line) Colloncas are one of the original and most ancient breeds of the Mapuche Indian culture of Chile. They produce generous numbers of colourful eggs and like many South American fowl lay well into the winter. Some hens will produce a pale sea foam hued egg, others robin blue, ash grey and even lilac. A single pair of Colloncas may produce hens that each lay a different colour. Colloncas are best known for innate tameness. They enjoy being held but unlike Silky fowl, which also enjoy human companionship, the Colloncas is completely winter hardy and can evade predators ably. It is a fairly strong flier and one of the more quiet breeds. Colloncas are very good at tick and fly control and are traditionally kept with sheep and llamas. The Colloncas is one of the two primary ancestors of the Araucana. It is advisable that the poultier keep at least two roosters with a flock of hens, three is the ideal number as Colloncas have strong pair bonds and the roosters work in cooperation to defend and chaperone hens and chicks. As a rule, true Colloncas roosters do not fight with one another and are never aggressive with people. Please PM me if you want to arrange a purchase (or have questions).
