    Quote:Um Nate..You do realize how rare these birds are don't you? The folks who imported these birds have spent hundreds upon hundreds of dollars PER bird to get them here?? I looked into it last year and I believe I could have gotten a pair for over 1000$

    Yes I understand that they are expensive, this is why I am looking to buy the lowest cost of this breed. This is hatching eggs. I know that pairs are very expensive and I'm wanting eggs. I'm looking for 1-2 dozen. Thanks

    If the people who imported them are the same ones who were listing their eggs on Ebay, they sell the eggs for the same price as they do the chicks [​IMG]

    ETA: I believe that was $160 per egg/chick unless it has changed.

    Oh, I guess the one I'd saw wasn't the only one, there is another farm that has them but they are very expensive. Eggs won't be much less than chicks; if you really want them you'd be better off getting live birds instead of trusting 'valuable' eggs to the USPS.

    These are 100% PURE Chocolate Orpingtons, imported from UK, and are from the Robbie Boyd blood lines. These are Bantams and not Large Fowl; we are working on acquiring Large Fowl Chocolate Orpingtons.

    We are hoping to start delivering in Nov. $175/ bird strait run + express shipping ($42.50 ) up to 12 birds in the box.
