    I've got lots of hatching eggs to sell for $1 an egg and $12 priority shipping (shipping price may increase if buying over a dozen eggs) to anywhere in the continental USA! I ship priority mail thru the USPS.

    Apenzeller Spitzhauben originates from Switzerland. They have small wattles and combs, so they don't have so much to get frostbitten. They have a well spread tail, full hackle and fairly hard, tight plumage. On the head is a horn type comb with two small rounded spires and the unique crest points forward like the bonnets on the traditional costume bonnets worn by the ladies in the Appenzellerland region. Spitzhauben actually means pointed bonnet. They are beautiful, curious birds that are a joy to watch. Hens lay a medium/large white egg. I am continually improving my flock by eliminating birds with the "Polish" looking tophats so that my birds are more true to the breed with the forward pointing crests.

    Brabanter chickens are very rare, interesting looking crested birds that lay a medium/large egg white egg. They are said to be an ancient breed of chicken and to have originated in the Netherlands or Belgium. Paintings from the 16th and 17th centuries show chickens that resemble the Brabanter. The roosters have a distinctive V shaped comb which resemble horns. I have both cream and gold Brabanters penned together, so chicks will be a mix of both colors.

    Cuckoo Marans (I have 2 blue cuckoo hens along with mostly regular, darker cuckoo hens and 2 feather legged roos) My feather legged cuckoos come from Kelly Cratty lines.

    2 Blue Jersey roosters with 5 black hens, and 10 blue hens

    My turken (naked neck) flock is standard size and I have mostly buff turken hens but I do have 3 white hens with black tails. One rooster is a blue & red frizzle, and the other is a gorgeous white with a black tail. Oh, and I have a cuckoo or barred colored pair by themselves that lay occasionally and I can add egg(s) if available.

    I also could sell smaller amounts of eggs from the following chickens: Welsummer, Silkie and possibly a few Egyptian Fayoumi eggs.

    I have turkey eggs available, too. I have an for them here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=181500 Turkey eggs are $2.50 each, and are Narragansett, Blue Slate, Bourbon Red, and Royal Palm.

    Guinea eggs are $1 each and could be lavendar, white or pearl. I have a pen of pure white and the other pen is pure colors but mixed together (white, lavendar & pearl)

    Carla, I just candled the eggs I got from you. They're on day 13 now, and 4 of the Brabanter and 3 of the Spitzhauben are alive and kicking. I cannot see through the cuckoo marans for the life of me. You packed so well, that they survived a rough-looking shipping. Most of the air cells were broken, but they seem pretty hardy. Thanks so much, and I'll update you when they hatch! I'm so excited for next week!

    I have a pen of partridge, a pen of blue & black, a pen of white, and a pen of blue splash. The white and the blue splash I need to check fertility on, since I just switched out roosters for better looking show quality roos.

    Shipping is $12 for up to a dozen or more eggs and eggs are $1 each.

    I just wanted to add on a little note:
    Carla, the dozen Cuckoo Marans eggs I got from you are hatching [​IMG] As of now, they even have a better hatch rate then my own birds (and the eggs from my birds only have to travel a couple of feet to get in the incubator)!
    Out of your 12 eggs, I already have 8 chicks! [​IMG]

    Quote:I wish you the VERY best of luck. I just heard back from someone on an eBay auction that I sent out eggs to in NC and they had a 100% hatch! Anytime eggs are sent out very far, I worry ... you never know how bumpy a ride they'll have.
