    Hey guys --

    I have five bantam araucana eggs going to waste. These are true bantam araucanas, not ameraucanas or EEs.

    I don't know the exact parentage on these eggs, or if they are even fertile. The fathers could be either of two roos -- both are rumpless, one is double tufted salmon, the other is clean faced buff. The mother of two of the eggs is rumpless, clean faced, and buff; the mother of the other three eggs could be any of four other hens, all rumpless except for one with two tail feathers, and all with at least one tuft, mixed colors.

    If anyone wants these, they are free for the taking. I will NOT ship. The oldest egg was laid last Monday, the others were laid between Wednesday and today. I am located in Lebanon, TN, but I will be happy to meet you anywhere between Lebanon and Knoxville when I drive to Knoxville in the next coupla days.

    OR -- I would be happy to pay anyone in that same area to incubate these eggs for me!

    For free eggs, I mostly just don't want to be bothered. If I get serious about selling hatching eggs in the spring, I'll be willing to ship then.
