Looking to share our good rose comb and single comb Nankins with breeders who will appreciate and use them. Right now 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 29, 2018, where our Nankin Rose Comb rooster earned Best of Variety, our Nankin Rose Comb hen earned Reserve Variety, our Nankin Single Comb Rooster won Reserve Variety/Reserve Breed, and our Nankin Single Comb hen earned Best of Breed and Best of 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 have a short (3 dozen) waiting list for the Rose Comb Nankin hatching eggs. We will begin shipping 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 $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, marked 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. We are near Saint Louis, Missouri, and we regularly attend the Clearview Feed Small Animal Swap in Union, Missouri, but we attend swaps and shows in other states, so we may be able to work something out.

Our next planned show is:
- Missouri State Fair Poultry Show, Sedalia, Missouri, August, 2019

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

Show Schedule NEW

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!
