    Offering 12 (plus whatever extras I have) hatching eggs from Winston (rooster) over these hens. Winston is a 100% English Blue Orpington. The pullets/hens are US Orpingtons and there are a couple of blue girls who are 50% English. The offspring of Winston and the 50% English girls will give you 3/4 English chicks. The chicks from Winston and the other girls will give you 50% English chicks.

    Eggs will ship on Thursday, 07/22/2010. Shipping will be USPS Priority with delivery confirmation, $14. I cannot be responsible for the eggs once they leave my hands. Please PM with any questions.

    Paypal only. Paypal address is [email protected]

    I think I'm gonna do it... out of these eggs the possibilities are blue, black and splash, correct? Because you're mating blue to blue?

    I bought these eggs TWICE and had great hatches.
    Most chicks are blue (got 4 blacks and 2 splashes also) and just big and beautiful.
    You will be very happy for the chicks' quality.

    Quote:as far as I know, there are black hens also. So you will get black chicks, but mine were mainly blue with 4 black and 2 splashes.
    Even the splashes are very pretty!

    Quote:Hi Jeremy,

    You are correct....possibility of blue, black and splash chicks. Winston is blue, and is in a pen with blue and black hens.

    (Thanks Helen !!)

    Should I bid on it again? [​IMG]
    I already hatched 16 chicks from these eggs, they are simply "beautiful" and " gorgeous".
    10 blue chicks (4 roos and 6 hens), 4 black chicks (3 roos and 1 hen) and 2 splashes (they are all hens).
    Chicks are so friendly and hardy, cannot ask better than that.
