    Combo of 8+ 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 for much more. We expect extras but don't always know and that's why we said 12+! ....It's not a guarantee there will be more than 8 eggs but if the hens are willing, so are we~

    4 of my hens from this flock and one rooster were sold to a BYC member yesterday. So my flock size is down a bit. That is why I'm listing 10+ eggs.

    These will ship the week of November 7, depending on when the eggs are bought and paid for. Will notify buyer if there is any change in the laying patterns of the hens which is not expected!

    Please know that I have 2 different pickups scheduled for the flock and after November 12, we will no longer have this flock on the farm...Because I've been hatching so much and adding more varieties, we are sharing this flock with two other farms. I will miss them and encourage you to get some eggs while you can! We will continue to offer Lavendar Project Orpingtons and we will continue our work with these fine birds.

    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.

    Payment and shipping information:
    Paypal address is:
    [email protected]

    For this listing we can only accept paypal and no paypal e checks please as there can be a long delay in receiving those.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 you don't have paypal and want to order some of these eggs, you may do so by pm'ing me and I'll share more details how you may order with USPS money orders and your order will be shipped after the USPS money order processes.

    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 many factors such as the incubators temperature and humidity, etc are very variable. . We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible. Ship only within the 48 continental US states. if you are in Hawaii or Alaska, you'll need to contact us separately regarding shipping times and costs as it takes longer and is more expensive to ship to Alaska & Hawaii from here!

    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.

    Please pm me with any questions and we'd be so honored to fill your order. Thanks for your interest. Happy bidding and have a blessed day! Nancy

    Many of you have asked how we pack and please look at our BYC page which describes it:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=8875

    The Garry Farm has spent a lot of time developing this system and you are welcome to use the techniques as described, but please if you copy the pictures or writing please reference as your source. We pack as if little lives depend upon it, because they do![​IMG]

    Please let me know if there are any more questions and thanks! Have a blessed day. Nancy
