    I am looking for some hatching eggs of breeds that lay white or Lt. Brown eggs. Would prefer that they are docile breeds but can't be too choosy I know....LOL
    Would love some Red or Brown Leghorns, I'm not a big fan of plain white chickens for some reason. [​IMG]
    I only need a few maybe around 6 eggs. I have enough room in my bator for about 12 of whatever.
    Would be willing to hatch eggs for anyone and ship the chicks back also after hatch and/or few weeks old.

    I can only have about 6 total chickens in my flock. So any in excess have to go to a new home anyways. They would be handled and pretty tame before they go.

    How would you ship chicks? You need to ship at least 12 or they chicks will die. Usually only 20 chicks for warmth?

    Where are you???

    I have 7 chicks that need new homes that are light brown egg layers for FREE

    And you wouldn't have to worry about shipped eggs, and hatching rates etc!

    I'm near Modesto, Ca.

    Why is it so hard to find red/brown Leghorns???
    Are they not laying right now??

    I wouldn't be able to drive your way for a few weeks, between work and school....I stay pretty busy, it's hard for me to get away.
    That's why I look for hatching eggs to come to me.

    your chicks are so cute ChicknThief!

    Quote:My bator holds up to 48 eggs. I can hatch them and ship them to whoever. Eggs would have to be provided. I would obviously only be able to do one person's at a time so that their were no mixups.
    I have no problem shipping 12+ chicks at a time. What I meant was if someone wanted older chickens I could keep them until they were ready and didn't require the heat as much once they are feathered. But, I am not a chicken farm so I don't want a excessive amount of chickens here being raised for people...LOL
    I'm nice but not that nice....LOL

    I live in a rural area in the city limits of Waterford, Ca. so I can only get away with having a few chickens.
    It's fun to raise them for a bit and then give them to good homes. Once I have established my flock, I can't keep them. This way I can still have fun hatching and then not have to keep them. Maybe as a trade I can keep a chick and send the rest to their home.
    Hopefully that clears things up!
    I can be a hatching service for the batorless....is that a bad thing to do???

    Hey no problem....I'm new at this! So I'm sure I will confuse many more people in time...including myself!
    I'm just glad I have plenty of people here to help me figure things out! [​IMG]
