    We're nearing the end of our first hatch, with 12 of 18 shipped EEs heading into lockdown, so we feel confident enough of our incubator skills to put in some purebreds.

    We're looking for feather-footed OR other heavy (English-style) LF or bantam, breeding/SOP quality - we won't be showing but I do like to see nice typey birds. Brahmas, Orpingtons, Cochins, etc. Would die for Faverolles, though I think they're out of our price range right now. Our priorities are healthy, vigorous birds who lay decently and hatch well and do so for a good number of years.

    We can spend $25-30 including shipping, which is why I'd prefer local so we can pay you what your eggs are worth. If you have eggs (10+ or 12+) in that range including shipping, we're happy to ship again.

    Our birds are treated very well, with a large converted shed barn and a 50 x 100 yard. We have four daughters who are very excited about adding to our existing flock of mystery birds and mixes.

    Thanks so much!

    I wanted to say a HUGE thanks to those who PMed me and responded. I am getting back to you all, I promise [​IMG]. I think I found some wonderful eggs for local pickup, but I am so excited to know that there are good sources out there for the next time. Bigdawg, I have a HUGE soft spot for Light Brahmas and am excited to know that they're a possibility.
