    Brahma are not the best egg layers either. CCL are great layers, so are BR.

    Thank you
    Ok, sorry I got lost. Honestly there's not always health junk going on but lately ...........wow............I need a "back from lunch" sign on my signature and an "out to lunch" one part time LOL

    The white ones I thought.......were my BE eggs and they're AW. I don't care for them and certainly didn't want more......they started laying off white eggs and now I can't tell them from the BE's unless I see them laying..

    Heading over to the contest rules...........

    So a week or so ago I ordered 12 long island duck eggs from a seller on ebay. I sent them a message a few days ago because after a week and no status updates I was getting worried. They replied with apologies stating that they had been in an accident which stopped them from checking on their ebay account. They said that they were instead of sending me the dozen I ordered send me 3-4 dozen and refund me my shipping charge plus send them 1 day over night shipping. I declined the refund because its not really a big deal to me. But OMG 3-4 DOZEN DUCKS! lolol we better get prepared. These will be my hatch along :) i cant wait!

    I love the sexlinks for the eggs! Can't go wrong there. I prefer the Reds. An egg a day. Leghorns too. RIR's do well. I've heard a lot of people say, leghorns and RIR's are mean. Oh pooo..they are not! I have had the sweetest birds. Here is a photo of them begging for treats at the back door. They will click their nails against the metal part on the bottom to get my attention.

    If you're looking for a meat bird after a long run of eggs, eggs, and eggs, then the leghorn wouldn't be a good choice. Those sex links do get pretty meaty though, and do the RIR's. :)
