Heritage Breed Hatching Eggs

I am going to be raising Delaware as my primary breed and I have chicks and hatching eggs coming. I would like to have Speckled Sussex as a secondary breed and then have some other breeds as well to add a little color and personality to my flock. I would like to get around a dozen Speckled Sussex hatching eggs and six plus eggs from a few of the following: Mottled Java, Barnvelder, Dominique, and Buckeye.

My plan is to keep about 14-15 Delawares, 6 Speckled Sussex, and 5 or 6 others.

It would be great if someone had a few breeds and could send hatching eggs from several at once. Also, while I am not going to be breeding any of these except Delaware and probably Speckled Sussex, but I would prefer breeder stock on the others as well.
