I have two broody hens right now, and probably more soon. My rooster is not the same breed as my hens (cochin x cuckoo maran anyone?) and I'd rather have chicks that were something that I'd enjoy. Instead of ordering chicks it occured to me that I can use my broody hens and skip the incubator / brooder steps . . . I'd love any amount of hatching eggs, up to 4 dozen, for a reasonable price somewhere near the Northern Washington State area. I live North of Seattle, and I'd prefer not to drive TOO far, but I'm willing to go up to Bellingham, WA, or down to the areas North of Seattle sometime in the next week to pick up eggs. Hatchery quality, show quality - either will be fine. I'm going to phase out my mixed breed hens this year and switch over to mostly the Americaunas by the fall - except for my children's pets. Sigh. Note to self - don't let children pick out strange breeds of chickens next time . . . I'm sure you wouldn't want my crazy mixed breed chicken eggs, but I do have pure Welsh Harlequin ducks laying enthusiastically. I have 5 hens that are pure WH, and one hen that is a Rouen, with one enthusiastic WH drake, so most of the eggs would be Welsh Harlequin purebreds (the ducks came from Metzers last year and are a mix of silver and gold strains. They are very good egg layers - I've gotten duck eggs through the winter! I'd be willing to trade or even partial trade since there will be that occasional Rouen egg . . . Anyway, I figure this is a long shot, but I thought I'd see if anyone had something since my broody hens are SO determined right now . . .
