    Ok, I want to see how well I do at shipping, so I am looking for only one or two testers that I can ship my eggs to, preferably in one of the surrounding states, but I will try it further if there is interest. What I have available are mixed eggs from a mixed flock. My hens are a mix of both standard size and bantam size.

    Here are what I have for hens:

    Bantam Cochins in Splash and Barred that are currently laying

    1 Mille Fleur d'Uccle

    And for Standard Hens:

    2 Amber Sexlinks

    1 Black Australorp

    4 Silver Laced Wyandottes

    The roosters are:

    1 Bantam Splash Cochin

    1 Bantam Barred Cochin

    1 Standard Turken

    1 Standard Silver Cuckoo Maran

    It's quite a mix, I know, but they are some of the sweetest birds ever. I don't have a mean bird in my flock. If you are interested in testing for me, please let me know. I will do $2.50 for 6 eggs or $5.00 for a dozen, plus shipping. PM me if you are interested. Chances of getting pure eggs are good cause my Cochin roos do most of the mating with the Bantam hens. Fertility looks to be pretty good. Also, I will be separating the flock next Spring, dividing the Standards from the Bantams and I will be breeding for pure Cochins in Splash, White, Mottled, Barred, as well as having Frizzles available. Currently my White, Mottled and Frizzles are not laying yet. PM me if you are interested and I will go collect what the girls lay over the next few days and I will try to have them ready by the beginning of next week. I have to give the girls time to lay. [​IMG] I am only looking for one or two people at this time, but if there are more people interested, I will keep you in mind. Here are a few pics of my birds:

    I am off to work in about 2 minutes, so I will try to respond to my PM's this evening when I get home. I am on Eastern time, so I will contact people after I get home, Indiana time, around 7:30pm. Thanks for reading this!

    Hi, I'd be happy to test! I'm in Texas, though. So if you feel like shipping all the way here, that's an option.
