    Hi all,

    Well my girls are laying again and I have 5 tester eggs in bator-all are growing on day 10!! I had some issues with this pen a while back as one of hens hens was throwing 4-toers even though they all had 5 toes each? So I stopped selling them. I seperated all hens and marked and collected all their eggs. Hatch time came and found one hen to be the culprit:-( I gave her to a good friend who just needed a bantam buddy that was lonely. I have only kept and bred 5 toers-this hen came from VT who's parents I did not see-and Im thinking either mom or dad had 4 toes..They all went broody in the beginning of Winter and I let all of them go broody with tester eggs -they have been busy raising babies and are now done and laying again:) The Parents are all split Lavs.

    This auction is for 6+( hopefully 9) I will mail these Tuesday--your chances of getting pures lavs are as followsSaid Monday but the auction doesnt end until MOnday night! so more eggs for the winner!!!

    25% pure lavs
    50% splits
    25% pure blacks
