    We will have several dozen fertile eggs available for Mon - Tue and Wed shipping. Each day the girls lay more and more. We have over 200 birds however not all are laying. The eggs we are shipping now come from birds that have been laying for at least a month and have been checked for fertility.

    In the very near future we will be selling straight breed eggs by the dozen. For now however we are selling an assortment of our choice (really the girls choice lol). We include extras as the girls see fit. All eggs come from hens raised off the ground, medicated and fed a 20% laying mesh.

    All our birds are separated by breed. The rooster to hen ration is 4-1. Our eggs are quality eggs from quality stock. In addition to the exta eggs; I always include something extra or as we say in Louisiana a little "Lagniappe".

    $30 includes shipping for the girls choice, 10 eggs plus extras.

    I do want to say as always I can not guarantee hatch rates due to shipping and to cold climate areas. This is something that folks need to consider when ordering for cold region states. Sometimes there are no problems others I am certain affect the hatch rate.

    I have both Bantam and Standard breeds. Here is a list of what is currently laying and have been for the past 30 days. Again what is shipped is "our choice "; and can not take request for what you will receive. Its too hard too promise and then that particular breed goes on vacation.

    Bantam
    Dk Brahma
    Porcelain d'Uccles
    Frizzles
    Golden Sebrites
    Silver Sebrites
    Lt Brown Dutch
    Self Blue Dutch
    Belgium Quail
    BT White Japanese
    Black Japanese
    Cochins

    Standard
    Buckeye
    Buttercup
    Golden Lakenvelder
    Sp. Sussex

    Welsummer**

    **Not all, but a lot of the Welsummers are laying eggs as dark as any Maran. I would be willing
    to post pictures of the Welsummer eggs compared to 90% of the Marans on the market. I will post a picture of the Welsummer eggs and you decide.

    Thanks

    I have to keep with standard chickens. If you can do just the standard group I would love to try some eggs.

    Wow, really nice Welsummer eggs. Can't wait until you can ship just certain breeds. I only raise standards.

    I just got a shipment of eggs from gatekeeper-super dark welsummer eggs and packaging was excellent. I got a few extras, and none broke during shipment. I would absolutely recommend gatekeepers hatching eggs!
