    We have a nice mixed flock with a lovely Silver Grey Dorking roo presiding. Rhode Island Red, Buff Laced Polish, White Crested Black Polish, Light Brahma, Black Copper Marans, Silver Grey Dorking, Easter Egger, and Olive Egger girls are laying daily.

    Fertility here is very good, but of course I can't guarantee anything once USPS gets done with them. I pack each order amply to protect your eggs as well as possible without it costing a million dollars to ship. [​IMG]

    I will happily label each egg for you to the best of my ability- I pretty much know who lays what, where, and when. [​IMG]

    We get about a dozen eggs a day, currently. [​IMG]

    $10/ half dozen, $15/dozen.
    I can collect just the ones you want, but it will take a few days longer as I only have one or two ladies of each breed listed.


    RIR x Dorking creates a sex-linked chick; boys have a pale head and girls have a little triangle, and these are great big, smart, versatile meat and egg birds. [​IMG] Our birds are on All- Flock (18%) since they live with a pair of ducks, and have Red Cell added to their water supply, in addition to free-ranging daily in the garden. [​IMG] They are very healthy birds and I very rarely have problems with thin shells, though a couple girls are past their prime laying years. I candle each egg before shipping, and they are turned daily to ensure viability.

    Shipping is $15 to just about anywhere in the flat 48.

    I am at 72901 if you are nearby.
