    Must be willing to ship, please.

    I'm not looking for show quality. These girls will be strictly egg-layers.

    Need not be available now. I'm merely looking to find someone that would offer these breeds. I'm not seeking many at this point (about 10 in total).

    Thank you! [​IMG]

    I have five jersey giants I am willing to part with. There is someone local that may want one or two of them, or not. I was supposed to take photos today but took the wrong (broken) camera when I went to go do chores today... I will try again tomorrow.

    How close are you to Vermont? I have 6 Giants and two Giant cross hens available now. Nice big layers.

    If you have any pics, ladies I would love to see them. And as I said before... I'm kinda just looking right now, but if I like what I see I'll try & convince the hubby. *haha*

    What are your prices? And I'm only looking to have these guys shipped, please. So, please let me know your shipping costs as well. I'm located in Hartwick, NY.

    BirchRunFarm: I'm about 5 & 1/2 hrs. from VT - depending on where you're located. What your mixes crossed with - do you know?

    You may change your mind on having them shipped when you find out how much that will cost!!

    Yeah, it is prohibitively expensive to ship adult birds. You are probably looking at about 60 bucks for shipping on maybe 3 birds, depending on how big they are (if you can put them all in the same box). The shipping boxes alone run about 20 dollars.

    Yikes -- that's a little more than I thought it would be. I'll never convince my hubby @ that price!!

    Guess we'll just stick to bringing home some chicks. *hehe*

    Sorry, everyone.

    Don't give up! In a day trip with two tanks of gas and $100 you'd have a wonderful flock from me (I'll make you lunch to sweeten this deal [​IMG]). My Giants crosses had a Giant mother and daddy was 1/2 Giant and 1/2 Orpington. They are BIG girls, as big as their Giant sisters. I have an unrelated cockerel to go with the group (7 or 8 birds)! You'll spend that raising chicks to 6 months of age if not more and have to wait for eggs. Some of these girls are experienced mothers and will raise babies for you. I can tell you a good biddy is more fun than a box of chicks!

    Here's a pic:

    The old red hen sitting down in the center isn't included. The other red one is one of the crosses.
