    My girls are laying regularly. I am offering 10+ depending on how well they lay.

    They lay nicely colored eggs as you can see in my pictures from this week's eggs.

    Barnevelders do well in confinement and they are not flighty. They are good foragers when they can get out.
    My birds are not snuggly but they will approach you - they think you have snacks. I hatched these birds from eggs purchased here on BYC last February. I hatched 11 hens and 2 roosters. I hope that ratio will hold true for these eggs too [​IMG] I have some in the bator now. I have checked fertility and "Barnie" is doing his job very well.

    These birds have very nice lacing as you can see in my close up of my current broody hen here

    They do not carry too much red.

    All tucked in for the evening - during a snowstorm:

    He does not have any white feathers - that is from the flash.

    I will take better pictures if it ever stops snowing here.

    Just a note ~ I have 3 BLRW hens in this pen but their eggs are much lighter than a Barnevelder egg. They will not be included (unless someone wants them).

    We all know the risks of shipping hatching eggs I will spare you the fine print [​IMG]
    I will wrap each egg and the lot as a whole well. I will do everything in my power to see that they get to you safe and sound.

    If you pay by paypal on Sunday, 2/6, I will put them in the mail on Monday, 2/7.

    Thank you for looking.

    Questions welcome.
