Feb. 23

What a fun packed day yesterday....Over 150 eggs were wrapped and left the Garry Farm for destinations all over the United States - no international shipping!   We shipped the following eggs:

Brown Chinese Geese
Lavendar Orpington
Buff Orpington
Blue/Black and Splash Orpington
Pekin Duck
White Leghorn
Blue/Black Splash Marans
Rhode Island Reds
Wheaten marans
and Speckled Sussex.

I still have more to ship today...Spring is approaching and these eggs must be incubated!!!!  It takes 1 and 1/2 hours to package a box...Very labor intensive but soo worth the time....   I'm getting 80 to 100% hatches reported from our shipped eggs and that's due to the work of Jacque in feeding and care and my wrapping....It takes about $3 to $4 of bubble wrap alone!!! See me about hatching eggs...
