I thought that this might be a good idea.

This hatching season, I'd like to exchange Light Sussex and or  Oxford Game eggs for any of the following.

I'd like get some pure Buff or Speckled Sussex, Rhode Island Red or Light Sussex from a different line to my own.

Place your wants and swoppsies on this thread.

I'm afraid i dont have any purebreds to offer but plenty of fertile blackrock x's and welsummer x's.

I would dearly love some purebred LF wyandotts (will pay top bucks) they are not available round here and i'm wary of e-bay

Love lizzie

I've sent eggs to the USA via Airmail, always at Easter time, always marked as being Easter eggs and the recipients have had good results. I've sent them to both NYS and West Virginnia. The last time that i sent any was about five years ago.

I would love to source some modern game miniature eggs.  I can offer Golden Appenzellar or Silver Sussex miniature eggs at the moment.

I am desperate to get some brown leghorn large fowl eggs, good quality, sorry but he is a perfectionist (god knows what he is doing with me!) and can exchange for any of the following

Pekins - mixed colours - have pictures of the chicks and they are tiny and multi coloured
Light sussex x silver sussex bantams
Buff orpington - Large fowl
Black Minorcas - Large fowl
Guinea fowl - Lavender pied and white - do sometimes throw off slate
Silver laced wyandotte bantams
Partridge wyandotee bantams (subject to broodiness)

Mixed duck eggs including crested

Have black scots dumpy's show quality as well which could be available once I have fulfilled a couple of large orders
Also buff wyandotte bantams once I check fertility and they all lay.
White wyandotte bantams - show quality, just off broodiness so should start laying shortly (hopefully)

Do have turkeys but can't find where she is laying, too many acres of free ranging and weeds! Otherwise I would be offering those too

If I think of anything else to swap I will add to it. Really want some of these to add to our collection.

I don't think we have anyone in our poultry club who has them I'm afraid. Good luck with your quest.

The last place that I saw any BLH was at the Acton Scott Farm Museum in Shropshire.
