    This is for 14 fertile eggs from our flock of chickens, for a total price of $15 shipped to you. Our chickens are all large breeds (Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, Black Jersey Giants, etc), good for brown eggs and good for Sunday dinner. They've never seen a cage, and have a whole field to range in for bugs and grass.

    We've put 18 of our eggs in the incubator this year, and all 18 were fertile. Seventeen hatched. You can message me for more pictures, pictures of some of the chicks from this flock, or more detailed pictures of the roosters.

    Your eggs will be shipped out less than 24 hours after being laid, and my eggs often go out the day they're laid. No saving up eggs to make a shipment here; I believe in sending out the freshest eggs possible

    Please understand that while I make every effort to protect the eggs in their packaging, I have no control over what the post office does once they leave my possession.

    This is a sample email (just received today) I got from someone who ordered these eggs off an eBay auction:

    You sent me 14 eggs. 1 got broken while turning (dropped). Your roosters sure dont need any viagra. ALL 13 HATCHED!!!! 100% hatch man and this is my first try! I am up to my eyeballs in chicks. I am 110% satisfied. Give the roosters a high five for me and a "YOU ARE THE MAN" shout out. Also you get a high five as an excellent seller!!!

    Though most of our chickens are heavy breeds bred to be good layers, I do have some smaller birds. I can include a Silkie or Polish ("top hat") egg in your shipment if you want, just send me a note to let me know. We have a Black Silkie, a White Silkie, and both White-Crested and Golden Polish. I can't tell which chicken of a breed laid which egg, but I can differentiate between the Polish and silkie cross eggs. The Polish crosses we hatched have tiny little mohawks; the silkie crosses we hatched appear to look more like normal chickens than silkies at 2.5 weeks.

    Please note: We have several different breeds of hens living with several different breeds of rooster. The chicks from our eggs are not purebred; they're more like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates: You never know what you're gonna get. If you want purebreds, you'll need to keep looking. [​IMG]

    Here are some of our chickens, enjoying pasta:
