    I've actually decided to take the plunge and buy a bator!! Time to raise the funds!!

    $20 includes bubble wrap shipping of 8+ eggs

    Choices:
    Delawares(trio from the VP of the Dellie club)
    Blue Sex Links
    Black Sex Links

    Feel free to mix/match.

    Please understand that hatching eggs are a risk. I package all eggs the way I would want to receive them in the mail. As well as they are packaged, I still cannot guarantee how well they will hatch after the rough handling of the USPS.

    What breeds did you use to make the blue sex links?

    Sounds cool! Can you tell me a little more about them? What color are the boy/girls upon hatch and how do they lay? Thanks.

    The hens hatch solid blue and grow up solid blue. They range from light blue to dark with super nice lacing. The boys hatch blue with a white dot on their head.They grow up to be blue barred.

    The oldest ones I have are only a few weeks old so I'm not sure about their laying skills. The hens they are out of lay daily without fail and are very pleasant.
