I have fertile Pekin & Pekin-Frizzle eggs avail...not ready to do a swap yet but further down the line (when a hen goes broody), I wouldn't mind swapping for other Pekin eggs or bantam Araucana eggs. In the meantime though, I'm prepared to send some eggs out for the cost of postage & some regular photos of any offspring produced - this is my first year with a rooster & I'm curious to see what the offspring are like.

edited to add (on 28 Oct):
I now have a broody hen, so if anyone is interested in a swap, please PM me...

I have ready to go... (only ask you pay postage).

1 dozen bantam Australorp eggs ready to go. (Blue & black, possibly white but I think my white girl has gone off the lay) Excellent lines.
1 dozen mixed - 6 bantam white rock eggs and 6 large dark barred X buff plymouth Rock. The
Bantam white are a work in progress. The DB X Buff are throwing a 50/50 of interesting mottled Dark barring and some buff columbian looking birds. I havn't had any fully feathered yet and my camera has died so I cannot get picture.

Am happy to swap for a variety of different eggs in the near future ( my incubator is full right now). But would particularly like some columbian pekin, columbian silkie or anything very small bantam columbian. This is for my daughter who loves the columbian coloration and would like a mixed pen of columbian birds. I will be getting some columbian wyandotte eggs for her shortly.

I have some quail eggs to go. I can send about 4 dozen now that I've worked out how to post them. I'm happy with postage paid but if anyone would like to swap me some bantam araucana eggs or polish eggs I would be exceptionally happy.

The colour quail I have in my pen at present is white, fawn and wild type. I'm happy to swap more down the track as well as I have more colours coming soon... hopefully chocolate, tuxedo, creams and silvers.

They have been great little layers with excellent fertility . My breeding pen has 10 birds usually 2-3 boys and 7-8 girls. I'm usually getting anywhere from 40 - 60 eggs a week.

Please PM me if your interested.

We have fertile large light sussex eggs from a very fertile rooster - all are or are from show birds. All are good size and build; routine layers throughout the spring-autumn season. Has proven to be at least 90% put under a broody.
We also have guinea fowl eggs - are testing fertility now; but will be available in the coming weeks.
We have Jap quail eggs; again, testing fertilty now; but should be available in the next few weeks.
We also have Large Appleyard/Pekin duck eggs; have again proven to be above the 90% under a broody.
In the coming month or so we should have pure appleyard eggs; as well as some appleyard/muscovy eggs.
Can provide pics of birds if required.

Would consider swap from either Pekin bantam (chooks); guinea fowl (of any colour); turkeys (any colour but white; or a broad-breated (naturally inseminated; though) line of any colouring); quail or any sort; pekin or appleyard duck eggs; or coloured muscovy eggs (prefer anything but white).
Would prefer to wait a few weeks while we try to work out our incubator in the instance of any trades - if you've any questions or comments; please don't hesitate to pm me or email me at info@bengafrogz.com

Hi, I can gather up a dozen or so eggs from my backyardigans..the rooster is a barnsummer[barnvelder/welsummer] as are 4 of the hens..3 other hens are BIG backyard layers of mixed origins, all lay nice big dark brown eggs. I have been getting over 95% hatching rates from this roo and his girls so he is working well at the moment.

I'd like to swap for some silky eggs...or some muscovys maybe...

we have inherited 2 little drakes that we were told were miniature mallards?..they arent very big...wouldnt mind some eggs to raise a couple of girls for these boys..

give me a yell if you are interested..janine

I am looking for some fertile duck eggs, not bothered how many or what breed as long as they are fertile and i should get a hatch :thumbs: Trouble i have at present is my muscovy girl has been on her nest with 17 eggs under her and obiously mr drake had gone on strike when those eggs were laid :aaargh: silly me didnt candle this time only cause i get such good results usually so didnt bother, thought id take a look today seems they were due this week end, all clear :shock:
But she is still in th nest wanting the little ones. All my muscovies are not laying at present so im in a bit of a tight spot now.

I have pure silkie eggs i can swap, araucana x, x layers, x bantam pen hmmm buff leghorns are not laying at present so counts them out. Any body if you are able to assist PLEASE

ALSO...

i would like to swap for some eggs in breeds that i do not have, interested in rhode island red if any available otherwise let me know what you have.

I have breeds of araucana x, x layers, x bantam pen, pure silkies mixed coloured, pure silkies pure black pen, buff leghorns, light sussex,

At present i have been collecting eggs mainly from my pure silkies, x-layers and dribs and drabs from the x bantams and the light sussex, as well as light sussex that run with the buff leghorns (eggs as auto sexed from this cross). With eggs collecting in dribs and drabs would have to make a up a mixed dozen.
