    Standard Yellow Daffodil bulbs with long trumpets
    - small bulbs (probably take 2 years to bloom)
    - medium bulbs ( should bloom nest spring if planted in the fall)

    I group them by dozens.

    Mimosa Tree seedlings


    A dozen Tiger Lilies

    White FinnDorset Wool rovings 1/2 lb = $20 I thought I had a photo of this but I can't find it on my computer. I will pull out a sample and post one soon.


    I also have various washed and dyed fleece (uncombed) but I have got to find it and inventory it so I know what I have and what I sold (of the pictures on my computer). 1 lb = $20

    I have raw fleeces in white, cream and shades of brown. These are Shetfindor (Shetland/Finn/Dorset cross, a finer medium with a satin luster) and the fine white ones are from my two milksheep (1/2 Dorset, 1/4 East Fresian, 1/4 Lacune). 2 lbs = $20 That is about half of a Shetfindor fleece. They are very light and don't carry a lot of grease. The staple length varies from 2.5 inches (usually a lamb fleece) to 4.5 inches. If getting a raw fleece and I notice that their are hard tips (damaged "split ends") I will trim them off before weighing the fleece.

    At the moment I have one pair of quail and the female hasn't started to lay but will soon. I am having to put in a new thermostat. My old one failed and all the quail eggs and chicken eggs were cooked. I have a new thermostat I just have to instal it. I have been ordering off of Ebay for the quail eggs. Last time I hatched Texas A&M's and sold all but one that I kept for a replacement mate for my male. His first mate prolapsed last year and though she healed up she didn't lay again and she just kept looking older and older. She died just 4 days after the chicks hatched.

    Hello, Penny Hen! I just discovered "Swaps" on BYC, how FUN! I would be very interested in finding out more about "side trading" with you I believe it is called, for your art skills/commissioned portraits or works you have already completed. I am referring to your statement made on 02-07-14 (my Birthday!), "I have some more serious skills (art related) that I can barter for some pricey eggs, but I am moving my art stuff to another room so I haven't made an offer to do any large portraits." I LOVE your avatar icon artwork! I raise over a dozen different rare and heritage breeds of LF and Bantam Chickens. I also have several pieces of fine jewelry from my grandmother's estate. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to speaking with you more on the subject! Blessings, Beth of SoulCircusInc

    Will do. I will probably pass it along even before I get them. DH is not fond of ducks. I am hoping to eventually talk him into Mandarins when I can afford them. Maybe Calls. You know if it is little it is cute and not so pesty
