    We have NH Reds, Buff orpington, Golden Comet and mix breed eggs that we would like to sell. The hatch rate is around 90%. The asking price is $10.00 a dozen including shipping $12.00 including shipping and insurance. If you would like a dozen or more eggs please write to us at [email protected] or you are free to respond on Backyardchickens.com

    Thank you. I have a customer who wants a NH hen or two and since I'm hatching several breeds in April, had a thought maybe I could hatch a group so she could get a couple then, but I'm not sure I have bator space for this go-round. Good to know you have them, though!

    Yes, a Golden Comet is a sexlink hybrid layer and will not breed true.

    Confused Farmer-
    If you want to continue the sexlink Gold Comets, put your RIR hens in with a White Rock rooster. That is the sex link combination.

    Hope this helps.
