    I'd rather have standards, but if I can only get bantams that would be ok. If I am buying hatching eggs, I would rather get them from nearby. I haven't had much luck with shipped eggs.
    Thank you for reading this!

    Hey Mike!
    Isnt Oregon great!! [​IMG][​IMG]
    I dont have any hatching eggs, because the ones I do are in incubator. But if you just want some chicks then in the begining of Feb I might have some if you would like. [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG] Crossing my fingers my hatch goes ok.
    I will have some purebred buff Orphs and then just a mix of Buff/RIR and then other mixes.
    Yea for Oregon!

    I LOVE SUMATRA!!! They were the first chicken I ever wanted. I got my sumatra before I even started into peafowl.

    Anyway, in the Fall I bought a STUNNING pair of Exibition Blue Sumatra from Tom Kenan (the show sumatra king!) I bought them right out of their show cage at a poultry show. (and paid a fortune for them too)

    As soon as they start laying I can send you eggs. I have them with a really nice black sumatra hen, so out of the trio I should get both colors. They are standards.


    Hes only 6 months old.... what a tail already!!!

    Hi TSAgirl,

    I have some buff orps too, maybe we could trade eggs to get new blood? I have some bantam barred cochin/barred rock mix eggs, and some cubalaya and orloff.

    I didn't know there were so many chicken farmers around here! Thank goodness for local.

    Hi Peachick,

    Yes I would be interested in trying your Sumatra eggs. I haven't had good luck with shipped eggs, but I really want some nice looking Sumatras. Mine don't look much like they are supposed to. Their tails are too high and short, and their faces and combs are really red.

    OK. When they start to lay I will post again.
    I have had good luck with shipped chicken eggs.
    But I suppose its different for everyone.

    Thank you Peachick!
    I've only bought shipped eggs twice; both times I had no eggs even begin to develop. In the same incubator "batches" I had my own eggs or other local eggs have 70-90% hatch. I hear that if they Xray the box the eggs are done for. I wonder if UPS next-day would be better? Do they Xray?
