    Hello everyone after much back and forth about it I am selling out of all my birds and my Incubator.

    Ova Easy Incubator, have used all this year and about 2 months last year and have been very well pleased with it. Great hatches. 3 turning trays and 1 hatching tray. Excellent Condition $475

    I have 25 Bantam Orpingtons
    12 - half to 3/4 grown 6 Blue, 6 Black $10 each
    11 - 08 hatch but grown in size 2 Black Roosters 6 Black Pullets/1Blue Rooster 2 Blue Pullets. $15 each
    2 - Grown 06 and 07 Hatch Blacks $15 each
    I would really like to sell all the Bantam Orps to 1 person or at least sell them in 2 to 3 groups not sell them off 1 or 2 at a time.

    10 to 12 Grey Call Ducks all are 08 hatched but grown in size. $15 each

    I have several Turken (Naked Neck) roosters They are free to anyone who wants them, most of them are Blue but there are a few Black ones.

    1 Pair of Barred Rock Bantams $20 for the Pair.

    Also have a couple of wire cages. (1) 4 compartment (1) 3 compartment
    $25 each

    I think this about covers what I have left but if something else is here I will post later.

    I will ship but as I don't have any shipping boxes left you will have to send me a shipping box. Pickup is welcomed and at this time really preffered as I am no longer able to drive and would have to get my partner to take off work to get them to the Post Office.

    I will try to get pics posted in a day or so. If you would like to see pics now email me and I will send them to you..

    You can also call me at 601-575-5981

    Thanks
    James

    Do you know the approx age of the half-3/4 grown bantam black orps? Also, can you tell their gender? Thanks.

    hinkjc, the younger bantam black orps are from 2 to 4 months old and yes I can tell the gender on them. The blacks I miscounted there are only 4 and they are 2 pullets and 2 roosters. There are 8 Blue's in this age and there are I'm sure 5 pullets and 2 roosters and 1 I am not sure on think pullet. They where hatched end of May to Mid July.

    I actually already have a deal going with a show breeder for 2 pair of black bantams. However, if that wouldn't work out I would definitely be interested if you still have them. Very nice looking birds.

    Jody, hey if the deal with the show breeder doesn't work out you can let me know. The birds that I have supposedly where shown before I got them. I purchased my adult birds from Michelle Adkins and I have a couple of young blue pullets that I hatched from KingsCalls eggs in the bunch also. Also I might be going to list them all on Eggbid in a day or so. I hate to get rid of my birds but my health pretty much is what is making me sell all my birds.

    Jeff, Thanks for the prayers, I really hate to sell all the birds also but am just not able to take care of them like I want to so rather than let them go lacking or me worrying over whether they are ok I will just sell them.

    I really hate to see my little Bantam Orpingtons go I have got 25 of them and to me they are all really nice little birds. If you are interested in enough of them and maybe some of the Grey Call Ducks I might could meet you in say Birmingham on a Sat or Sun. If that helps you out any on the distance.

    Super birds. I'm very happy w/what I got. If you don't sell what you have left pls post again. Do you know a place w/cheap shipping boxes? I have those you sent me but I'm not crazy about reusing a used one. This is only if someone doesn't grab up those beauties. The birds actually got here overnite. Bama's roo is wonderful & is getting along w/my 2. Everyone is in the henhouse tonite except the little cochins (in their own pen). Lost a mixed duck. It flew out of the pen. About dark I found it but as I got close (speaking gently) & tried to reach out to it, it flew away. I may have scared it. Haven't seen it since Thurs nite. The 4 still here were verrry quiet today. I may be sorry I didn't clip those wings but I usually don't clip. Hope you get to feeling better & let us know how the sale goes. Again, couldn't be happier w/those wonderful birds.
