The first person to comment SOLD then send me a private message with your e-mail address will receive the invoice. Please pay within 24 hours or I'll offer them to the next person interested. USPS Priority mail shipping fee is FREE. Ready to ship TODAY. We have 1 BCM Rooster over 2 Lavender Maran hens and 2 Black Copper Maran Split to Lavender hens (Direct Greenfire Farm Rooster & Papa Poultry Lavender Maran Color project hens) Parent stock, eggs and resulting chicks pictured. Thanks for looking Paypal payment only (no e-checks)

    I collect 3 times a day, eggs are clean because I take good care of my hens and keep their nest boxes free of excess debris. We are a smoke free home so your eggs will not be contaminated by nicotine from smokers hands. I do a test set every week to check the fertility and habitability of all the pens using the oldest collected eggs not shipped. I have a 90% hatch rate on eggs that have been stored for more than 8 days prior to setting.

    SHIPPING NOTES: I will send you the freshest collect eggs, individually wrapped in bubble wrap then carefully packed inside lots of padding, double boxed. I hand carry them to the USPS and ship them Priority. Hatch rate on shipped eggs is out of my control therefore I will not guarantee your hatch rate. Hatch at your own risk.

    ADDITIONAL USPS PRIORITY NOTE: HOLD FOR PICK UP written on the outside of a Priority mailing box isn't a guaranteed thing. Technically that service is for EXPRESS mail shipping only and runs an extra $25.00-$35.00. Most people that have a good working relationship with their local Post Office can get the HOLD if they contact the post office and advise them of the pending package.


    NOTE: We test our birds every 6 months for Avian Influenza as part of the Idaho NPIP program. Here's why this matters.....

    How is avian influenza transmitted?

    Avian influenza is most often spread by contact between infected birds and healthy birds. It may also be spread indirectly through contact with contaminated equipment and materials. The avian influenza virus is found in secretions from the nares (nostrils), mouth, and eyes of infected birds and is also excreted in their droppings. Contact with contaminated droppings is the most common means of bird-to-bird transmission, although airborne secretions are another important means of transmission, especially within poultry houses. Wild duck droppings can introduce low pathogenic (LPAI) into domestic flocks raised on range or in open flight pens.

    How highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) is initially introduced into poultry flocks remains unclear. However, the spread of avian influenza between poultry facilities almost always results from the movement of infected birds or contaminated people and equipment (including clothing, boots, and vehicles). Avian influenza virus can also be found on the outer surfaces of egg shells (but rarely inside); therefore, egg transfer is a potential means of avian influenza transmission. Airborne transmission of avian influenza virus from farm to farm is not likely.

    More pictures of the parent stock and the newly hatched chicks can be seen at my web site www.rigginsfancychickens.com
