Seller: brucejones (10,152) 99.7%, Location: Centralia, MO, Ships to: US, Item: 280898707273 Pure Regular Greys will be 100% Green-legged and 100% straight combed. It is hard to find the pure ones like the ones I have. In my opinion they are the most beautiful birds that I have on the place. 90% of my hens come the buttermilk coloration and 10% will come the silverback. Some people with pure regular greys tell me they get all silverback hens or some tell me they get all buttermilks. I get some of each. This breed of birds did not originate from my Grandfather Herman Pinnon's farm. He had some Regular Greys, but was really more of a black and red man. I had been wanting a family of Greys for some time, and I wanted the best available. I don't want to spend the time and expense raising average or below average birds. The history of the Regular Greys, the way I understand it, is that they are a Madigin Grey and a Brown Red cross originated by Col. John Madigin and Hanky Dean. If anyone else has any other history on the Regular Greys I would be interested to hear it. The ones I have I got from Fred Ettleman and his daughter Delores (wonderfully interesting people). He showed these pure and had a lot of success for years, Fred said he originally got his from Jack Taylor and Johnie Moore, both of these men well known for having good birds. Johnie Moore was an old running buddy of my grandfather's. He originally got his from Harold Brown. Jack Taylor, I am not sure where his came from, but I am trying to find out. I suspect they also came from Harold Brown. We have bred selectively for gameness and shear beauty. I try to keep my grown birds in a minimum of 200 sq. ft. of pen space per adult bird unless they are in moveable pens that can be kept on fresh grass. They are well fed prefering grass, garden scraps and bugs in the summertime. They are extremely healthy and well taken care of. The rich woodsy bottom land I live on seems particularly conducive to raising strong healthy fowl. I am a member of the National Poultry Improvement Plan tested Pullorum Typhoid Clean. Eggs are sold for agricultural, exhibition, breeding and other legal purposes only. This auction is for 7+ eggs from 5 different brood pens of pure Regular Greys. We have a limited number of eggs for sale this year. My birds are hatched from brood hens, and I have about an 85% hatch rate. I will guarantee these eggs are fertile and no more than 3 days old when I mail them. I can not promise hatchability because of a wide range of variables in hatching eggs. We try to do our part by wrapping the inside of the box in Aluminum foil and packaging the eggs extremely well in bubble wrap. Currently from the buyers I have heard back from over 99% of my eggs have arrived unbroken. Shipping fee is $15 priority mail 2 to 3 days $35 express 1 to 2 days to anywhere within the continental U.S.. Expect a time delay in shipping to Hawaii for Your Dept. of Ag to send me the red entry permit. My cell phone no. is (573)881-4024. Note: I believe the old saying 1 picture is worth a thousand words. I will be updating my pictures regularly. Notice the nice red eyes. I have been breeding to try to improve my birds every year and I really like my matings this year. You will get eggs out of my brood pens. Also check out my other ads in our ebay store. I do combine shipping. No additional shipping charge for additional eggs. Tip this WeekFriends my tip this week: Something that we all have had problems with. I get hens wanting to go broody, and for whatever reason and I am not ready for them to sit on eggs yet. In my move-able pens I have the nesting boxes on hooks where I can just take the nest out of the pen problem solved. In my large stationary pens where I might have 4 or 5 hens in one pen, I have some small drop pens made out of 55 gallon plastic barrels split down the middle both ways to make 4 pieces. I put 2x4 welded wire over the open end. About 2 days in that, they are constantly trying to find a way out and back to there nest, they will have lost all interest in sitting on eggs, and in about 1 week will start laying again. yfis Bruce Feedback from last year Hey Bruce the ylh and the roundhead hatched 6 of 8 ylh and 7 of 10 round head best of any eggs i have ever bought and had shipped thanks will do more biz with you Hi Bruce, Just wanted to let you know that all my LH eggs hatched except one.
