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, 2018, 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 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 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 $50-80, 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 connieabeln@gmail.com and we will coordinate a good time and place to meet for delivering hatching eggs or birds, and for comments, too.

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 State Fair in Sedalia, Missouri in August. We will also be at the Clearview Feed Small Animal Swap in Union, Missouri on the first Saturday of the month, now through October, 2018. Contact us if you would like to purchase and pick up eggs there. We will have some adult Nankins for sale, too.

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

Hi Connie,

I sent you an email a couple days ago inquiring about purchasing 4-8 Nankins but have not received a response. Please check to see if you received the email from btw3073@comcast.net.

shipping chickens NEW
by: Kay Chang

Hi!
I'd like to ship adult chickens and am wondering do you have tips on successful shipping. I have standard chickens of 3 different breeds, none are giants.
Particularly, if it is beyond the overnight shipping range, do they do okay without food and water for that 2nd day?
Thanks!
Kay

Hi Connie,

I saw that you are from the St. Louis area and also show in Ohio. I was wondering if you ever attended shows in Southern Indiana or Illinois like Red Hill in Mt. Caramel, IL?

Thanks,
Rebecca

Sorry, not attending the Texas shows this spring NEW
by: Connie Abeln

Hi, Anonymous,

Just noticed the comment from December 17. I cannot show my birds at the Southwestern Exposition in Ft Worth, so I probably wouldn't go to that one. I found the Houston Livestock show online just now, but that doesn't give me time to enter and complete the requirements for the show as an out-of-state exhibitor.

If you or anyone else need to contact me about upcoming shows, swaps, or birds, please send me email at connieabeln@gmail.com.

Thank you!
