    My neighbor & I have some older eggs up for grabs, if you want a killer deal on eggs, this is it... HOWEVER, I always throw in a few fresh eggs, for my neighbors, I cannot tell how old they exactly are!

    They range anywhere between 4 days old on up to a few weeks; I've had these hatch out for me as well as other people.
    This can be a steal or a deal, but it's a gamble. I've had pretty good hatch rates from MY old eggs as well as those I ship out to others, but seeing these are some of my farmer neighbors, I cannot guarantee the rate; I know for sure, some of my eggs will hatch, they always do. They have a few of the same breeds I have, but a few more mixed birds, mainly Rocks & Orpington croses, but also the same French Black Copper Marans, Cuckoo Marans & Light Sussexes.

    If you want this steal, this is what you'll be getting...
    $36 for 30-36 eggs
    $20 for 12-20 eggs (if you only get 12 eggs, I'll make sure that 1/2 of them are fresh!)
    This is unlimited & offered throughout - a great way to get cheap eggs & try for a few peeps here & there if you're not wanting to spend a lot of money, but wanting to test out older eggs.

    As always I do have newer eggs for sale... Read below for more information [​IMG]


    ***

    Thanx to ALL those who adopted from the last batch of Old Geezers! I made sure to ship out some fresh eggs along with the old <3 This Saturday I have a LARGE load of fresh eggs not sold (or laid yet) so you'll be getting a super deal! [​IMG]

    I will be shipping out Tomorrow as well & have this Saturday's "Old Geezers" for the Part II [​IMG]
    This is a GREAT way to adopt the old eggs & get a lot of neat eggs for cheap [​IMG] as well as some new!
    Most of this Saturday's eggs are under a week old, with a few batches being 1 1/2 old.

    While you may not get the typical 75-100% hatch rates as with my fresher eggs, MOST of my "old egg sales" get around 50% of course if not a rare few getting higher, once in a blue, you do get a dud batch - hence why I try to add a few fresh eggs so you'll at least get a few fluffy butts <3

    All I want is to no the end result [​IMG] I hatch alongside you guys so I no how my hatch rates are as well [​IMG] I am here to help you [​IMG]

    This is what I have to offer for tomorrow for this Saturday (older eggs)
    CM eggs - $7 a dozen
    FBCM eggs - $8 a dozen
    Light Sussex - $7 a dozen
    BLRW eggs - $8 - 1/2 a dozen - 4 of the eggs are fresh, 2 are 7 days old
    Mixed lot of older eggs - $7 a dozen

    ***
    My special deals (this includes shipping) - Crud screwed up shipping prices! LOL
    CM - 1 dozen FRESH, 2 dozen old eggs = $32
    FBCM - 1 dozen FRESH, 1 dozen old eggs = $35
    LS - 1 dozen FRESH, 1-2 dozen old eggs = $32
    MIX lot - 1 dozen FRESH, 2 dozen old = $32 (if the BLRW aren't sold, they will go in this lot, whomever purchases first!)

    ***

    Payment must be made ASAP - if you get your payment sent before 9 AM on Saturday, I will run around & see what I can do!

    I accept both Postal Money Orders & PayPal - PMOs must be received first - so I'll ship out next week's Old Geezer's batch!

    Shipping prices as is:
    $18 for up to 3 dozen eggs
    $15 for up to 1 1/2 dozen eggs
    I will typically try to squish more eggs in, so cross yer fingers!

    I ship out Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Saturdays - once in a blue, I ship out Thursdays (if you live in a state around me & eggs will usually arrive within 2 days). If you're wanting fresh eggs, let me no as well! I always have those for sale!

    For fresh eggs... my prices go as stated...
    FBCM - $15 a dozen
    CM - $12 a dozen
    Light Sussex - $12 a dozen
    BLRW - $10 - 1/2 a dozen
    Bantam mixes (they're all hybrids, but once in awhile you get a pure bbs or white silkie) - $5 for 1/2 a dozen
    Mix lot of eggs - $10 a dozen

    If you hatch out my fresh eggs, I typically stand behind my eggs & will ship extras if you get a dud hatch rate (which is rare!).

    Here are some photos:

    Quote:6-7 most times, they may get a wee lighter later on, but they tend to stand pretty good. Once in a blue, someone pops out an 8.

    I'll try & get the BLRW up. [​IMG]

    I just got two batches of these eggs. I could not believe the packing and how she got so many eggs in the box. I received lots & lots of eggs. The egg color on the Marans was really good. Most were nice dark eggs.

    did you sell the 3 dozen old geezers yet? What is in the mix that is wrapped and ready? I'm interested in LS, BLRW, CM, and FBCM geezers.

    I believe quite a few of your eggs will be fresh since I'm running low on old fart eggs (they should all be fairly new), but hey, [​IMG] You're not going to complain! [​IMG] or maybe you will?! [​IMG]

    Hey do not tease me, you WILL receive a squished human [​IMG] among your eggs! [​IMG] it's cold here & New Mexico sounds a LOT warmer! The good part, is you'll have a poultry wench to care for your birds... I MAY even consider NESTING/Broodying over your eggs... but my butt may smoosh eggs... [​IMG]

    I'll be hungry, so get the foood ready [​IMG] don't want you new pet brood-human to die of starvation!
