    The winner will receive 6+ Isbar hatching eggs from my gorgeous flock. Isbars are an extremely rare, recently imported breed. The winner will need to coordinate with me as to a shipping date that meets both our needs.



    Have fun. Tell a story.

    i did 15 & 16, i didn't photoshop. the ghostbusters scene was from youtube, i paused it and put the egg on the screen with the laptop laying on the ground. and the beetlejuice one was just a photo i found online and i did the same with that one, i put the egg on the laptop screen. you can actually see the reflection of the egg. all i did was crop the photo so you couldn't see the computer. i can send in an uncropped version with the computer showing if you would like.
