    Hi everyone. Around the end of January- mid February, I would be interested in some hatching eggs. I am looking for true Amaucanas, Barred Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, and Black Copper Marans. I would prefer that you live in or near CA, so that the eggs ship better. I just want them for egg laying and pets, but prefer to stay away from hatcheries. I also would like to stay under $30 if at all possible. If anybody would have any available or knows someone who would, please let me know! Thank you! [​IMG]

    I have both true Ameraucanas and Black Copper Marans. I do not live in CA, however I'm directly north of you and the weather between us is quite the same. [​IMG]


    roocrazy - If any place else this should be posted in the Wanted Section, not the hatching egg section. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the replies. I didn't even know there was a wanted section until now. [​IMG] I hope it is okay here. Anyways, Illia it sounds like you would be a good person to buy from. If you don't mind me asking, how much do your eggs generally go for? Also, how dark are your maran's eggs. [​IMG]

    Wanted Section, Breeders/Hatcheries section, - Both get about the same sort of posts - "I want, I'm looking for, do you have photos of stock from-" So there's little worry. [​IMG]

    roocrazy - You're confusing me. I never mentioned anything about posts vs threads, I just said that the Hatching Egg section is not about looking for hatching eggs, it is about incubating eggs, hatching chicks, and the problems/joys one experiences in the process. It is the section to post in after you got your eggs you're looking for. [​IMG]

    I will PM you prices, info, etc.
