    Got divorced, sold the farm. Two years later I'm getting into chickens again, they are cheaper and more effective than therapy! Looking for several different breeds, but not really into barnyard mixes. Part of the fun for my nieces and nephews is identifying the chicks after they hatch, so would like the eggs to come from the same breed of parents. They do NOT need to be show quality, as they will be our pets who provide us with breakfast. I would like to purchase 3-6 eggs of each breed, and would be thrilled if somebody has more than one breed to offer. Please let me know what you have, what you would be asking for the eggs, and an estimate on shipping. I am just North of Davenport, IA. and would be willing to drive within 100 miles to pick them up if the price was right.

    Here are some of the breeds I'm interested in: Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons, Golden Laced Wyandottes, Speckled Sussex, Black Australorp, Black Copper Marans, Light Brown Leghorns, Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, New Hampshire Red, Welsummer,

    Finally, I have a nephew who "really, really, really, really" wants a White Crested Black Polish, but I think I can talk him into a Buff Laced Polish.

    I don't have an exact date that I plan on hatching, so more than willing to wait till after the Holidays if needed. Thanks for your time.

    If you want young hens, I have some 11 week old rhode island reds, white leghorns and buff orpingtons. I've got about $6.50 in them, so I would have to have probably $7.50 each. I have to go to Iowa city next Tuesday an could bring some with me.

    I think Brama's look cool, but for some reason haven't had a hankering to raise them.

    bromgren: Thanks for the offer of juvies and meeting in IA City (I am there at least once a month if not more!) I think the kids really want to hatch them out. Well, I'm blaming it on the kids, but really I want to start hatching again :) What kind of hatching eggs will you have in Feb?

    Bob: Thanks! If you don't mind being patient, I'd like to see what else I can rustle up on here too. Once I know what I can get and when I can get it, I'll pick a date. I'll get back to you soon!
