    hi,

    I am looking for some hatching eggs from RIRs that are GOOD LAYERS. don't care if they are show quality, I am only interested in their laying ability. prefer someone east of the miss. for shipping reasons.

    purebred only

    Thank you!

    Melinda,by the way I am in NC,and we live on a farm.We have very sterile and clean facilities.Also have naked necks for sale.Some people call these turkens and they lay the biggest eggs I ever seen.Some of them have as many as 3 yolks. But mostly 2-1.But very nice eggs and rich.If you can let me know so I will know how to prepare.Sandra

    sandra,

    could you better define very good layers? I haven't been impressed with the RIR I had in the past from a hatchery though they were *ok* their first year. I'd like something that will lay at least 5 out of 7 days except for at most during molt. just looking for a good reliable layer without going back to sexlinks or leghorns. and how much do you charge for a dozen eggs with shipping? how much are your chicks for 25 shipped to indiana? thank you.

    oh and I've had naked necks/turkens before. mine all turned out to be roosters (and mean as the devil) but boy they were wierd looking, lol.

    I have RIR's that lay well, my 10 hens lay 6-9 eggs everyday. I think they is pretty good since they lay on a 23 hour cycle. They have been laying well even though its gotten below freezing here in KY. Only thing is I wont have any fertile eggs for sale until this summer.
