Robo, what would you think if we do an egg exchange at your farm when we meet? You know, like a cookie exchange. We could all bring like two dozen hatching eggs, open the cartons and each would get however many divided by how many people there are) so you take home two dozen eggs from everyone! (Like if there are 12 people who come and they each bring 2 dozen hatching eggs, you would get 2 from every person) That would be so fun! We could mark (to the best of our ability) what the eggs are. What does everyone think?
So, I am looking for some more Lavender Ameraucanas. Anybody have extras or eggs? Kevin is an unreliable source at this time.
I love this idea! Would be a great way for all of us to grow our flocks with new breeds.
And Kevin has sold all his Lavender Ameraucanas now. I have half, someone else in the Canton area I believe got the others.
I'm getting 2 eggs every other day right now, but since I deliberately picked the younger pullets I'm thrilled with that right now.
I also got 4 unrelated Lavenders, but 3 of those appear to be roosters. I was told 2 +2, but one very hennish looking one is now crowing and chasing ladies. UGH.
Once the newer birds are out of quarantine we will be setting up pens for the BBS and Lavender Ameraucanas and my Lavender Orps who are looking very close to laying finally!
My silkies arent laying yet that I know of though. :( We have a small enclosure for them, just waiting til hubby feels better to set it up.
