    Would anyone have some inexpensive hatching eggs for a 10-year-old to try out her Christmas present on? She doesn't mind if they are barnyard mixes or purebred. She would be ready for them the first week of May and the closer to Lanc. Cty., PA the better. They would consider picking them up to save the shipping and handling on the eggs. You can PM or email me I will let her know. Thanks.

    I would have to ship them, but I am more than willing to send a dozen or 2, standard and bantam, or whatever she wants. I can get them into flat rate medium box. it's 11.35 to ship. But if you would pay 1/2 the shipping I will send them for her. I have some great birds and Ive been getting feedback on the hatching rate. even shipping the eggs, my customers are averaging about 98% on hatch rate.
    I am big on education and I have been shipping about 5 dozen a week, just to the schools alone for their classroom projects.

    I have EE's, RIR, Amaracauna, Orpingtons, brahma (light and dark), brown leghorn, Chantecler, Astrolorps, yada, yada ( 'Ive got a bunch)
    All my bantams are EE's, but a lot have gone broody, but she could have a nice mix. (just depends what she wants).

    Let me know if I can help.

    [​IMG] Seems you will have more eggs than she can handle!
  6. I am very close to you. We just hatched some of our own eggs for the first time and got great results. You can see the chicks in my photo album. Would be happy to share some eggs!
