MO - Nankin Single Comb & Rose Comb Hatching Eggs
by Connie Abeln
Mom Nankin with duckling and Delaware chick
Looking to share our good rose comb and single comb Nankins with breeders who will appreciate and use them. This spring and summer we have hatching eggs available, and we will be ready to ship when the weather is warm enough to ensure safe shipment.
Nankins are bantams, so, for their safety, you will not want to mix them into a large-bird flock. They are outdoor birds, hardy in cold and heat, good and reliable layers if you pick up eggs daily, great setters, parents and surrogate parents, even for larger chickens and ducks. Our flock is NPIP certified and AI-free.
We show our Nankins regularly at state fairs and poultry shows, to make sure our stock stays consistent with the American Poultry Association and the American Bantam Association standards. Our most recent show was the Tulsa State Fair Poultry Show on September 28, 2019, where our Nankins won all the top spots for breed and variety.
When available, our prices for Nankins are:
If shown and won, $30/bird
If show quality but not yet shown, $25/bird
If not show quality but almost perfect, $20/bird
If a good Nankin type, $15/bird
We currently have no adult or juvenile birds of any type available. We will begin shipping hatching eggs as soon as the weather allows.
Hatching eggs are $30/dozen. We will need to know if you want rose combs or single combs, or a mix. Eggs will be marked before shipping. We cannot guarantee what happens to eggs after they leave our control. We will send you the shipping receipt with the tracking number, so you can track their trip, and file any claims, if needed.
We will also ship birds and eggs, but not chicks, when the weather permits, spring and fall mostly. This spring we will have no live birds to ship; we hope to have some in the fall.
* For live birds, shipping costs range from $85-130, depending on your location and the weight of the birds, and include the Horizon N.E.S.T. USPS-approved shipping box and USPS overnight shipping, if available. We can ship up to four Nankins in a N.E.S.T. We will ship only through U.S. Postal Service, weather permitting.
* Hatching eggs are shipped express mail, marked fragile, and in a large padded box. Shipping costs range from $70-100, depending on distance and number of eggs shipped.
* All shipments are insured, and the buyer is responsible for filing any insurance claims with the US Postal Service if the eggs arrive late or broken. The buyer pays for all shipping costs.
Contact me at email@example.com and we will coordinate a good time and place to meet for delivering hatching eggs. We are near Saint Louis, Missouri. We attend some swaps and shows in other states, so we may be able to work something out.
Note: We do ship adult chickens, weather permitting, but we do not ship chicks.
