Same eggs in direct sunlight: Or not - its not gonna let me post that shot. Its on my member page if you want to compare. This is my last batch, unless I can bear to part with a bunch of babies and find a great deal on a line of larger built/orpy maybe looking blues. I've seen larger Lavs - what happens if you cross Lav and Blue?
Oh yeah, I see that blue spot you were talking about. That is blue! All of those are a nice blue. I'm loving all of those eggs. And, are those Welie eggs, or Maran? I'm bad, bad memory if you already told me that you have Marans? Those are pretty dark eggs!
My black Ameauracana, is getting red in the face, I am hoping she will lay an egg as blue as yours! How fun it must be to go collect eggs!
