    Hi, we just met...but I feel I know you already hahahaha

    A Sandgroper checking in. I thought the Aussies on here were thin on the ground, but after 88 pages I saw a few come out of the wood work.

    I laughed pretty hard at the Tom Vs Oz-leg battle,
    am jealous of your coop-deluxe. Nicer than many island homes I have seen up your way. The joy's of so much local material.

    and, I would love to sling an internet high 5 to Bernie, his shovel and his new found chicken husbandry duties!

    I thought my introduction/story thread was long at 6 pages, this one take the cake!

    All the best Oz, I will be sure to check back in to stay in the loop with the Phil's being populated with imported breeds. Feel free to visit my families little adventure sometime.

    Cheers, Ben

    Good evening
    I would like to purchase some Giant Jersey hatching eggs. I would prefer the black variety. I also am in need of 24 barred rocks.
    Ideally I would like 24 eggs of each variety.
    They would have to be mailed on a Monday, March 25 and the eggs would need to be no more than 2 days old when mailed.
    Could you accommodate such an order?
    Kind regards
