    Hello everyone,

    I am a long time lurker and first time poster. I live in Southern California and have my first set of IB eggs in the bator right now. I would like to get a different variety of eggs to incubate. I do not want to ship and other colors are hard to find here. I will be in Vegas in mid July and I was wondering if anyone has any eggs or even chicks that they would sell me that I can pick up while there. What is the asking price per egg or chick. Thanks so much.

    I would not purchase eggs I would just get chicks. Eggs in the long run are more expensive than just getting chicks or even better, juveniles.

    Yeah I would much rather get chicks that have just hatched out. Thanks :)

    Welcome to BYC! There is a breeder in Elk Grove, CA that hatches lots of colors. He's listed on the UPA website, so give him a call.

    Thanks. That's about a 9 hour drive from me but I will be about an hour and a half away from him in June so I will definitely get a hold of him. Thank you so much.
     
  6. Thanks for the mention Kathy but I don't sell eggs. Here are the eggs I set today, I set them every seven days.

  8. Yes, I will be shipping some of the common colors and patterns early and the more 'exotic' will be available in September when shipping will continue after the heat of summer.

    Hi there! I'm looking for (peafowl) eggs to purchase. Any colors. Will need to have shipped to Connecticut. I appreciate any help!
     
  10. I am now shipping chicks at four weeks and older after they get a good start and past the danger of 'crib death'. I am offering on my FB page Spring Creek Peafowl, a list of available colors and patterns at four chicks for $250 including box and postage.
