How about a crazy auction chain to raise money for the fire victims in Australia? My thought is that anyone can jump in at any time with an offer of eggs, and the highest bid on that set of eggs that is posted before 24 hours is up is the winner. Aussie Sharon said she would be willing to accept and verify winning funds, and shipping fees would need to be worked out between donor and winner. I never started a chain before. Hope this flies! I would like to start this chain with an offer of six+ Blue/Black/Splash marans eggs. (WE ARE LOCATED IN NORCO, CA!) They are not the darkest, but two of the pullets lay an XL very nice egg and would make good general laying hens. Two lay an orangey brown egg and the two black pullets lay a darker brick color egg usually. The weather has been funny and they have laid some really oddball eggs lately. The genetics is there for a decent seven though. These are clean legged birds of varying sizes and temprements, not show quality. So... that's my starting offer. I may be able to offer some outstanding CBM eggs soon. Cross your fingers. On your mark, get set, let the bidding begin! Feel free to jump in at any time with any offer of any breed or variety of eggs, Chickens, purebred and mutts, waterfowl, button quail, emu, whatever you got, Let's show the Aussies our BYC spirit! Winners, PM the person with the eggs to let them know you won. Donors, please state SOLD and the winning bid on your auctions when they finish. BBS marans eggs won by reghen. Winning bid, $40. Congratulations redhen!
