The eggs are here!

October 3, 2008 § 2 Comments

Yay! The eggs have arrived!

Liselle does a seriously good job of packing. See what I mean?

We candled them all too, just to be sure there weren’t any hairline cracks that might compromise the eggs’ viability. All fine. So now it’s just a matter of giving them 24-48 hours to settle (turning them every 12 hours or so), and then putting them under Poppy.

Not sure if we’ll put all of them under her. She’s certainly doing a good job of covering the nest area, but she’s only sitting on three nest-eggs. We’ll see when the time comes.

    Easiest (and probably cheapest) way is to use the link go to the NZ Rare Breeds website, and then contact someone who breeds whatever it is you’re interested in and ask them if they have eggs, birds or chicks for sale.

    TradeMe also have lots of poultry related listings – go to “Business, Farming and Industry”> “Farming”>”Poultry”. Being an auction, the prices can get a bit insane at times.

    We will be selling some of the Magnificent Seven girls, and maybe one or more of the boys. But not for quite a few weeks yet. If you’re serious, you can contact us to discuss it.
