I ordered 10 st run lavender orpington chicks from Fountain Falls Hatchery (she's located in North Carolina) she said that my chicks should be hatching tomorrow 12/7 and she also should be shipping them tomorrow I'm not sure yet but she told me that I don't have to pay her til they hatch so I'll pay her tomorrow she also said that she'll ship extras and I'm very exited and I hope that they all arrive alive and healthy she is a breeder by the way she also has showgirls, cream legbars, mille fluer d uccles, Bcms, Fwms, and other breeds (I'll leave her website below). I was just wondering if anyone else has ordered from her I know that I should've waited to order the chicks but... Why wait!!??

I hope the hatch went great for you!

The ph. number listed for the link you posted is not a North Carolina ph. number. Did you mean South Carolina?

she now set 30 lavender orp eggs in the incubator and she said that she'll send me the 10 chicks I ordered plus 5-6 more chicks because of the delay without extra charge!! I told her that it was very kind of her to do that because how many breeders do you know that would do that? Not many!!

Sorry the hatch went poorly. They do that sometimes.

Yay!! The chicks are begining to hatch! I can't wait well I will have to wait til the 5 of January for the chicks to be shipped because we both didn't realize that the original shipping date 22 of December was too close to Christmas and the chicks might get stopped somewhere along the way and mostly likely die!

I am a bit upset that she said she was going to ship about 15-16 and she only sent 12 and one passed on the way here so now i have 11, but oh well I asked her what happened about the other 4-5 chicks she said she was going to send me but she hasn't answered yet!!

Just a little update on the chicks! So far I have named only a couple of em I still need to get pics of my other 4, I named the oldest Stella(she was born Dec 7th) George(the smallest Dec 22nd) Jasmine(2nd smallest Dec 22nd) and Lele(3rd smallest Dec 22nd)
Jas, George and Lele are finally 2 months today!! And Stella is 3 1/2 months!! The other three are also 2 months but they hatched on the 20th I haven't named any of the three but I'm debating some names I'm hoping that in total I have 2 cockerels and 5 pullets :fl but only time will tell!!

This is Stella I need to get a new pic of her she was 1 1/2 months here
