    12+ eggs from one of The Garry Farm’s rarest, biggest and most colorful, beautiful flocks. Because my incubators are full, this gives you a chance at some eggs that are normally sold in much larger amounts. We expect extras but don't always know and that's why we said 12+!
    These will ship the week of April 18, if payment is received if payment received after the buyer hits buy it now button.

    Here are pictures of some of the second generation (for our farm) Lavendar Project Orpingtons

    The black "chicks" in this photo as well as a few of the Lavendar Chicks are from a custom hatch for Split Black/Lavendar Orpingtons completed for a customer earlier this year...We also have a few babies we kept for the garry farm

    Split Black/Lavendar Orpingtons

    Christmastime, 2009, I purchased a batch of Hinkjc's split black/lavendar orpington eggs and I received a second batch in January 2010...This flock has been laying now for several months. I have 1 rooster for 4 hens ratio and fertility has been great. I'm doing a test run on them now and have 100% fertility and development showing even in my stryofoams, one of which has to be reset every 4 hours! I must repair my cabinet

    Pictures below are with my now famous $39 walmart camera..and that is deer fencing that covers the top of the pen...These are really big birds I wanted to be sure you knew it was deer fencing. Deer fencing is a much wider plastic that the fencing on the side of a chain link. Hope that helps with perspective of the picture and their enormous size.

    Babies from Group #2 will be visually black or lavender. In terms of genetics, Split x Spit will yield on an average 25% Lavendar, 50% Split Black Lavendars, and 25% Black Orpingtons.
    Payment and shipping information:
    Paypal address is:
    [email protected]

    Please be sure that your paypal mailing address is current and if you want to pick up at the post office, please let me know via a pm your phone so I can put it on the box!

    If you want insurance, please send $18.70 not $16.70 for shipping as the insurance from USPS costs us $2.00 more. If for any reason you want us to add a heat pack to the package, it is an additional $2.00. I do presently have the heat packs and can add as needed/requested

    The shipping listed is average based priority mail, confirmation delivery,packing materials, etc. plus our delivery to the post office. If you want xpress or insurance, it will be more. We ship eggs in the same way we would like to receive them. We bubble wrap each egg separately, putting in a regular box (not an egg carton) which is then cushioned and set in a larger box. These are not the prepaid priority boxes but we use the large boxes that can be ordered through USPS as the standard mailing box. Our mailing costs can often be higher than the prepaid boxes but we find that they arrive in better shape, so it's well worth the extra time, packing materials and shipping costs. Occasionally with a large order, we will use an even larger outside box. Even as carefully as we ship, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We do not guarantee the percentage of your hatch as the incubators temperature and humidity are very variable. We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible.

    We are a chemical free farm and farm full-time. We feed our animals with the best feed, sprouted grains, fresh grasses, treats from the garden and loving care. For more information please visit our farm site http://freewebs.com/thegarryfarm/ or visit us on facebook - The Garry Farm

    Please check out our feedback.

    We also have feedback in the new system as you'll see above

    Please pm me with any questions/orders and we'd be so honored to fill your order. Thanks for your interest. Happy bidding and have a blessed day! Nancy
    Edited to correct mailing date for the eggs.

    Do I understand correctly that all of the breeders are black, and most should be split to lavender? thanks ......stan

    Quote:Stan all of the breeders are black, they came from a crossing of lavendar and black at Hinkjc's Poultry. So they have already been split.
    You will get both black and lavendar babies from these eggs. If you have a large flock statistically you will get what is described in the third bullet below (the one with an asterisk in front of it.)

    lavender X lavender = 100% lavender
    lav X black = 100% black carrying the lav gene
    *black carrying lav X black carrying lav (visually black birds) = 50% black carrying lavender, 25% lavender and 25% straight black
    lav X black carrying lav = 50% lav and 50% black carrying lav

    This flock is item #2 - 100% black carrying the lav gene and yes, the general stats are 25% lav, 75% split as described in line 3.

    If this is not sufficiently clear, please pm me. I'm not at the computer for long periods of time as we full time farm. I'll look in again on this thread in the afternoon. Thanks Nancy
