    This is for $25 SHIPPED.

    Offer:

    10+ Golden Lakenvelder eggs, packed in foam. I feed a high-protein diet to ensure good quality babies, and folks have been very happy with my hatches. I have been working with 3 different bloodlines to try to get clean middles, and I think the babies are showing the work.

    Feel free to ask questions!

    I can't guarantee what happens during shipping, but I try to work with folks if there are issues.

    Hi! I've read both that Lakenvelders lay a white egg, and that they lay a cream/tinted egg. What color eggs does your flock lay? Are they fairly good layers?

    Great question!

    I have 2 that lay a very white eggs and 3 that have a vaguely creamy egg that still looks quite light. It's certainly got no brown to it, and is more like a bantam Cochin's egg or a Silkie egg, but larger.

    I generally get 6 eggs out of each girl per week, except when the heat index has been over 100*- and they deserve that break!

    The roos are quite single-minded ("Watch girls, jump girls, watch girls, AGH! Sky!! Watch girls...) and are great watchdogs, and the girls are quite timid but very curious and friendly. I enjoy the small, but not bantam, size. They are fabulously light eaters. I have to get rid of this flock, though, as I'm trying to get down to 6 breeds...

    That's just creepy. Seriously- I had to leave and didn't get to send you a message asking how it was going! Psychic much?

    They fit into the cochin pen, thank God! My lone little girl is shaping right up, btw. Black and adorable.
