    Hello, I am on a quest! I am seeking a couple Hens that lay BLUE eggs! I dont care about appearances, as I am not showing or breeding, I just want the eggs for crafts and novelty!

    I will drive most anywhere in the New England area to pick up the lucky ladies. We have a small flock of 21 spoiled birds, with a heated coop, and year round free ranging, so you know they are going to a good home! Older ladies are welcome, as long as they are still laying!

    You may respond to this thread, or email me, which ever you prefer, and thanks!!!

    Hi I am in Mass too and would like some unique colored eggs. french black copper Marans, americuna, barnevelder, just a few ladies for pretty colored eggs. Good accomodations with other chickens and peafowl...on the south shore of Ma would be fantastic, but I'll travel too. Thanks Pam

    Ok, since there is obviously a shortage of true Araucanas in this area, I guess I am gonna have to hatch some!!

    Any one willing to sell me some true blue fertile eggs to hatch?

    I would prefer a hen still, of course, but maybe I am aiming too high?!

    Give it some time. I'm sure someone has an Araucana or something to sell.

    I will tell yousomething but you can't tell anyone else. OK?

    Araucana chicks: Nancy Utterback: she said she was raising prices this year. Like $100 for 15 chicks

    She is a great lady to deal with! Very pretty birds. I have a bantam that perches on my head or shoulder every morning. They are very mild mannered.

    Well, I emailed her too, but really all I want is a couple of hens.... I dont really want to get into raising and subsequently breeding another type of bird, however, if that is what I have to do....[​IMG]

    So be it.....

    Single hen, locally? Anyone?

    It is too soon to set up breeding pens here in chilly, snowy Vermont. Patience is a virtue! [​IMG]
