    [​IMG]For Sale: one dozen RARE Nankin eggs. These are eggs out of 4 different breeding pens that have all been shown. You could get RC or SC (have a RC roo in one of the pens) These are my favorite breed we raise, very calm, majestic looking birds with great mothering ability. These make great 4-H projects for the first time shower and also great birds for someone who does NOT have a bunch of room for Large breeds. YOU WILL LOVE THEM!!!!!
    *Money Order only
    *Eggs are all wrapped one at a time with plenty of cushion for the trip, however I can NOT guarantee fertility and hatch once they leave my hands.
    *we have 2 batches in the incubator now that we tested fertility on and only had to pull out a egg or two on each batch. (will send extras if available)

    Note too, I do believe this breed is listed as Critical according to American Livestock Breeder's Conservancy. A great breed for those looking for the rare and interested in preserving a heritage breed.

    Hi we have nankins too and they are very docile and child friendly....they are a rare heritage breed in fact there are some judges who dont even know what they are...you can join the nankin association for $10 a year they have a great club....these are nice little birds and definitely worth hatching and breeding...also they hatch out really easy....in 19 days usually..

    This breed is very old. Most of the bantam breeds we have today derived from this bird. Really great birds that are fun to have around.

    Is shipping always $13 or would it be less if they were being sent within Wisconsin? I would love the eggs but shipping prices are what push them over my budget.
