    Contact MissPrissy. I hatched some of her BBSO's last week and they are gorgeous and healthy. The best hatch I've ever had too! (Out of 11, 10 hatched!)
  3. I'll have some this spring. PM me if you want on my waiting list. Thanks!

    Not easy to find.....I have been looking for more eggs for a while now. I figure there will be more in spring.....I just prefer that my ladies are laying by spring so I am trying to hatch this "Fall".

    Good luck! [​IMG]

    Don't know if this'll be close enough, but we're crossing a Black Giant roo to 4 Black Australorp hens and have eggs Cold weather has slowed laying a little, but these should be nice babies. P.M. us for details [​IMG]

    Hey. no problem.The Black Giant X Blaxk Australorp cross WON'T make Blue Orps. The Australorp side does have an Orpington gene in it's breeding,hence the"orp" on the end of it's name. I was merely hoping that someone might settle for a Black breed, if Blue couldn't be found quickly enough, Yes,I beleive our roo is indeed a Black Jersey Giant,although we have no proof, just the former owner's word for that. Sorry for the confusion. [​IMG]
  9. I have some in the bator right now, but I want more [​IMG] Still looking....
  10. I have some from MissPrissy. I would like to add some more lines to my future flock. Since spring is almost here, I was wondering if anyone had any pure BBS Orp eggs for sale yet?
