    Quote:If anybody is interested in Total Surprise "Designer Breed" Eggs, sure! And the term "designer" is merely a nicer way of saying "mutt." Could be bantam cross breeds, or large fowl cross breeds, or bantam and large fowl cross breeds....

    I could do that!! Otherwise it may be Trader Joe's.

    but please, please, please, no turken crosses! [​IMG] shudder.

    Ohh, and we're fairly close, I suspect! No turkens in my flock. I share the shudder!

    The only time i want to see skin on a chicken is just before I shove it in the oven. The more feathers, the merrier otherwise. Mark me down for a vote on creepy.:p

    Are you silly people at it already?! How come no one sent me the memo?

    I'm in. I'll break out the other 7 incubators and crack a can o' whoopdidoo out on you all!

    Actually, since almost no one is laying right now, I'll be lucky to have more than 1 incubator full, but we'll see.

    My Choc Orp roo will be here by then and I'll be doing all sorts of experiments!!

    I'll offer a contest for week 2: I'll post the rules and submission requirements a bit later, but it's the same as last year. Prize to be determined.

    I'm in on the egg swap! Could be fun...

    Don't mind turkens either, think they're creepy in a cool sort of way.

    I've got mostly banties but also have a gosh-awful specimen of a silkie roo as well as a JG mutt roo out with the girls, so no idea what you could get!! But they are feathered! I have a friend that has fertile eggs, bet I could swap ya'll some of her full size chicken mutt eggs.

    Oh yeah, just paid for 18 CJ silkie eggs for the hatch. [​IMG] [​IMG] so put me down for that.

    Hahaha! I run a Flapper Contest. You get a good shot of any poultry flapping its wings and send it to me during the contest and we start a big poll and let all of BYC vote for their favorite. I have given away eggs, but will likely offer something else as well, this year.

    I'm getting a Chocolate Orpington from Heirloom Orpingtons. I'm sooooo excited! Projects, here I come! As if I need more projects...sheesh.

    eta: btw- working on a Red Pyle Ameraucana. it.is.sweet.to.see!!
