    Ok not sure if it goes here.
    Any way I decided instead of hatching Black Orpingtons eggs and chancing the eggs to shipping,im going to get some from Sandhill Preservation.
    And im also going to get on the waiting list for Chocolate Orpingtons.costing me a arm and a leg.....
    Then I found a great deal on a brower top hatcher and will use that on any eggs my chocolate chickens lay.Dont wanna chance chocolates on my homemade bator.
    I had to save up to get the money for the chocolates so I can't buy anymore chicken stuff that cost alot.(hubby would strangle me)

    Well, I hope it's not too hard taking care of all those chicks with just one arm and one leg![​IMG]
    Seriously though, I like the idea of "chocolate" Orps!

    If you could wait even six months for the Chocs I'm sure you'd save an arm. Or maybe a leg. Last year I saw 6 Choc Orp hatching eggs sell on eBay UK for over £200. Today the same eggs are selling at a buy-it-now price of £18. Amazing how quickly the price came down...

    I'm jealous. [​IMG]

    Oh well, I'll love my little buff babies I'm getting this March either way. [​IMG]

    Quote:I have been wanting them since I first saw the color back in 2008.
    I never spend that much on myself so it feels kinda weird buying them.
    But I so can't wait to get them,they won't be chicks when i get them.
    The wait is gonna kill me [​IMG]
