    I posted once before but as of next week I plan on buying some. Wanted to check here before going on eBay to buy. I will be able to order after Wednesday. Anyone have any available and would be willing to ship.

    Shes asking which size your interested in, the regular size or the smaller variety? They are gorgeous things, i have a flock of the large fowl and love them to bits. I think that pic you shared has been slightly enhanced. I am pending NPIP certification but will be asking 30$ a dozen for my eggs plus 20$ shipping. The price will go up next season as i will be adding fresh blood and working towards the proposed SOP.

    I am in Maryland, this would be the first time buying shipped eggs. Not sure if it would be good to ship then clear across the is. What do you think.

    As for the size I am not sure, I have seen pictures of this breed and fell in love with how they look.

    Could you post pics of your flock plz

    I understand the inexperience and im more than glad to help! It would be a hard shipment. The warmer it is, the easier it is for the eggs to get scrambled by the post office. Shipped eggs are notoriously difficult to hatch. Generally it is recommended to get shipped eggs from as close as possible. The next states over preferably. That said, sometimes its just not possible for special things. I would do my best by individually wrapping each egg in bubble wrap and double boxing the whole package but the post office is so bad on our little live embryos. I have had several boxes of shipped eggs. Two of those were compleate busts. In one package the post Broke several eggs! Despite the sellers Best intentions doing everything ive spelled out. I can swear my eggs have high fertility and hatchability but once scrambled they just cant settle back sometimes.

    Do u have or have you ever had bantams? They are rather special things and mine are from The most desirable lines. Bred from Mr Jerry Foleys lines. Absolutely stunning and of course ill post pics! I have some in my gallery on my profile page but i will be back asap to post them. Right now just getting in from a long trip spending the day with family.

    I will let you know for sure I have found some that are within 250 miles on eBay. I haven’t had bantams. We have Brahmans, rir Orpington, Plymouth rocks and a few mixed ones.

    These are my actual breeders on my property: love there are also 3 other hens providing the full spectrum of the color range. Are you aware that the blue laced red wyandottes dont breed true for blue? They work on the andalusian blue principle where when bred they produce blue, black and splash. Mostly i get blue, some splash and havent yet gotten one black this year which is odd but totally possible too.
