    Those eggs are from Valentine Hatchery. I recognize the photo and the guy's name from an email he sent me once. I have heard mixed review about Valentine Hatchery. $82 is a lot of money for eggs but I am currently on Bev's Marans waiting list (It's about a year out) and she charges $60/ dozen, but I am more than willing to pay it for her eggs.

    yes it is expensive but i have seen a half dozen of the black coppers going for over a hundred just for the six. so really it could be worse.

    I paid $96 for six eggs. At the time I thought I was getting hosed, but after seening a lot on this board, I consider it a deal. It is hard to get hens from proven dark laying lines. I don't know how Ray's line lays. His hens are American standard, not feather legged. I wish people would post pics of the eggs along with the birds when they are selling marans.
  5. I paid $50 (not including shipping) for a dozen of Harvest Breeze Farm's bantam cochin eggs. I'm down to 4 eggs with live chicks...just the usual #@*%# from shipping, I'm sure. But what chicks I get will be worth it...they are awesome.
