I actually bought 7, but one was unfertilized. The breeder offered to replace the egg, but I was happy with what I got. I will certainly ask her what lines they are from, as she is local. I transported the eggs myself. I have had great luck with my little incubator, which only holds 7. When I saw pics of her RIR's, I practically drooled. And the fact that I got 7 eggs for 14 dollars still astounds me, and to get a trio out of them to boot!
When it comes to eggs, I found a significant difference between the RIR eggs and the RSL eggs, not only is the shape and size very different, but the texture of the eggs were much different. I have 4 sex links, and most do lay many shades of brown, however the RIR eggs are not as large and they are quite pale in comparison with a very creamy-smooth finish to them when it came to their shells.
