I did get an order of your eggs that was on ebay- that was shipped last week.
I checked them last night and I think I have some that are fertile. I need to get
new batteries into my light so I can get a better view & double check!!!!
Thank you for coming onto the BYC and confirming that pic - that I believe I
saw on Feathersite.com too, is in fact your bird. I think he is beautiful!!!
I also got the doz Ohiki/Fly Tie eggs from Onagadori from the PO this morning
& now the incubator is pretty full.
My oldest son has tied flies since he was a youngster to fish at the family
cabin near Estes Park, so I was slightly familiar with the art.
Yes, I have found it is very difficult to get any info on the secretive group
of hackle breeders. I may be sending you some PM's if I have questions.
I mentioned the guy in Utah in a previous post that has a group for sale
of mature birds that he has been breeding for some time - & I get no reply........
Gotta go off to work-
