Looking to share our good show-quality rose comb and single comb Nankins with breeders who will appreciate and use them. Right now we have hatching eggs available, and a limited number of adults, pullets, and cockerels.

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 Heartland Classic Poultry Show in Anna, Illinois, on March 10, 2017, where our single comb and rose comb Nankins earned blue ribbons.

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

Hatching eggs are $30/dozen. We will need to know if you want rose combs or single combs, or a mix. We cannot guarantee what happens to eggs after they leave our control.

We will also ship when the weather permits, spring and fall mostly.
* For live birds, shipping costs range from $80-100, 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, fragile, and in a large padded box. Shipping costs range from $30-70, 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.

We like to sell locally, within about 50 miles radius of Six Flags Saint Louis. However, we do attend swaps and shows further away, so we may be able to work something out.

We will be showing at the Missouri Poultry Association Show in Sedalia, Missouri, on April 21, 2018, and at the Dayton Fancy Feather Club show at the Darke County, Ohio, Fairgrounds on the weekend of April 28th-29th, 2018. Contact us if you would like to purchase and pick up eggs there. We may also have a limited number of chicks available for the April 21st and April 28th-29th shows.

We will probably not be shipping eggs until mid-April, due to the difficulty of finding good weather for safe shipping. (April 15th is the last average frost date in our area.) Contact us at, and we will coordinate a good time and place to meet for delivering hatching eggs or birds.

Contact me at for comments, too.

Note: We do ship adult chickens, weather permitting, but we do not ship chicks.
