We are home schooling two of our children, currently.

On our farm we have 300 plus chickens, 50 plus ducks, 37 some geese,

A few hundred quails (it’s canning time), 20 or so doves (white and regular),

a peacocks, more pigeons than I can count without an abacus.

Your personal hatch rate will depend on many different things, such as temperature, turnings, humidity and such.

Because of this no one can guarantee a real hatch rate.

Our chickens (male and female) roam free during the day at night we put them up to bed with all the love any parent would.

We say a blessing over them to G-d for the joy they have brought to our lives as well as eggs and meat.

They are spoiled well fed and overly loved.

We have a full incubator; all of our little darlings look great as we have been candling them every few days.

Only the Freshest eggs will be shipped, I collect them three times daily (most of the time more).

Each Egg will be Bubble wrapped and carefully boxed for safe arrival to you!

Shipping is done though the U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail.

I can not ship these little loves outside of the US, sorry.  I do ship to Alaska and Hawaii!

Be Blessed  from all of us here at Mahanaim Farm

 

 

                                                                                                                                         

Below is a  basic look at how we wrap our eggs...it has taken us years to figure out that this is the safest and best way to ship them safely.

After the last step above the boxes are padded again and sealed than they are shipped with great love from our door to yours....

Americana's and nothing but....Blue and Green eggs....

                                                

     

We have many different and wonderful birds in our little flock. Our hens are little charmers, sweet, and friendly. Most lay an almost sky blue egg.  Big eggs, blue inside and out.

This past season we added golden americana or arcana are also sweet well-mannered birds, beautiful gold and brown feathers they lay bright blue eggs. These as all my americanas has blue feet or green and in some cases willow colored feet and puffy check, and yes and their entire vertebra.

They are just darling…

Our blue/gray americanas are an odd ball color that we are very proud of and hope to breed many more. We also have a few black and or americanas and a few reds and a few splash colors that all  lay various shades of blue/green eggs.

Our birds are highly sought after and have been winners at many County Fairs and 4-H events.

Ours have been bred to eat up all the little pests you might have laying around.  Some examples are ticks, scorpions, snakes and almost any bug, or small critter that they may come across (including mice...Yuck!). Their moms and dads keep this six plus acres squeaky clean...

They will brood any type of egg and make great moms.

The information below comes from:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silkie

Silkies are one of the oldest breeds of chicken. It is unknown exactly where or when fowl with their singular combination of attributes first appeared, but the most well documented point of origin is China. Other places in Southeast Asia have been named as possibilities, such as India and Java.[1] The earliest surviving written account of Silkies comes from Marco Polo, who wrote of a furry chicken in the 13th century, during his travels in Asia.[2] In 1599, Ulisse Aldrovandi, a writer and naturalist at the university of Bologna, Italy published a comprehensive treatise on chickens which is still read and admired today. In it, he spoke on "wool-bearing chickens" and ones "clothed with hair like that of a black cat".[3]

A black Silkie hen and her chick. The breed is renowned for its broodiness and mothering abilities

Silkies most likely made their way to the West via the Silk Route and maritime trade. The breed was recognized officially in the North America via acceptance in to the Standard of Perfection in 1874 (the first year of publication).[4] Once Silkies became more common in the West, many myths were perpetuated about them. Early Dutch breeders told buyers they were the offspring of chickens and rabbits,[5] while sideshows promoted them as having actual mammalian fur.[6]

In the 21st century, Silkies are one of the most popular and ubiquitous ornamental breeds of chicken. They are often kept as ornamental or pet chickens by backyard keepers and in zoos, and are also often used to incubate and raise the offspring of other poultry (including waterfowl like ducks and geese) and game birds such as quail and pheasants.[7]

 

Silkies are often considered a bantam breed, but this varies according to region, and many breed standards class them officially as large fowl. Almost all North American strains of the breed are bantam sized, but in Europe the large is the original version. However, even "large" Silkies are relatively small chickens, with standard size males weighing only four pounds (1.8 kilos), and females weigh three pounds (1.36 kilos).[8] The American Standard of Perfection calls for males that are 36 ounces (1 kilo), and females that are 32 ounces (910 grams).[9]

Silkie plumage is unique among chicken breeds; Silkie-like feathering may appear as a recessive mutation in individuals of other varieties, but no other true breed has it. It has been compared to silk,[10] and to fur. Their feathers lack functioning barbicels, and are thus similar to down on other birds. The overall result is a soft, fluffy appearance.[11]

 

Silkies most likely originate in China, but other Southeast Asian countries are also sometimes proposed. The first written account of the breed by a white European comes from Marco Polo, who mentioned chickens with fur-like plumage in his Asian travelogues in the 13th century.

All Silkies have black skin, bones and grayish-black meat; their Chinese language name is wu gu ji (烏骨鷂[13], literally "crow boned chicken"), meaning "black-boned chicken".[14] Melanism which extends beyond the skin into an animal's connective tissue is a rare trait, and the Silkie is one of only a handful of chickens to exhibit it. Disregarding color, the breed does not generally produce as much as the more common meat breeds of chicken.[15]

Silkies lay a fair number of cream-colored eggs, but production is often interrupted due to their extreme tendency to go broody; a hen will produce 100 eggs in an ideal year. Their capacity for incubation, which has been selectively bred out of most egg-laying fowl, is often exploited by poultry keepers by allowing Silkies to raise the offspring of other birds. In addition to being good mothers, Silkies are universally renowned for their calm, friendly temperament. They do well in confinement, and interact very well with children. This docility can cause Silkies to be bullied by more active or aggressive birds when kept in mixed flocks.[16]

Curly his lady's and our other two non related roos are all quite the charmers.

I went threw a great deal of trouble to buy from many different breeders to get unrelated birds to breed with and now have a nice flock to breed from.

A little more about them:

Our Self blue OEG ( Old English Game birds) are true Bantams and true blue.

They are a lovely powder blue-described by some as slate blue. 

They lay a slightly tinted egg.

Full grown they weigh about 22 ounces for a hen and 24 for a roo.

I love our and I know you will be very happy with these little charmers.

Muscovys are the only domestic ducks that are not derived from Mallard stock. They are a South American species.    Males are huge, weighing up to twelve pounds, with the  females grow to be about seven  Their feet have strong sharp claws and are built to grasp, so that they can perch on branches, this makes them sort of hard to deal with sometimes.  Muscovy's will often fly up and roost.

                                            Cayuga Ducks

 

This is one of the breeds of duck developed in North America their origin is lake Cayuga, in New York State. It is thought to have been breed from the large black ducks that have been coming to the lake since the 1850's. It is a hardy and quiet breed. These ducks are best known for their plumage, which is a brilliant greenish-black. They are quite amazing to see in the sunlight.

These ducks are great for eating and for egg laying, laying 100 or more eggs a year.

Early in the season, Cayuga eggs are usually black or dark gray, or even green fading to light gray or blue over the laying season.
