    Hi all,

    I've had a request to post an auction with fewer eggs. [​IMG] LOL This auction will be for 8+ eggs ( most likely a full 12)

    I have been saving all my OE eggs to blow out for Xmas decorations ( I know I know) but Ive gotten 100+ done of them and im ready to NOT collect for me anymore:) All that blowing out drives me nuts! haha

    In my pens I have a FBCM rooster ( 7 months old) with my girls ( 9 of them) ameracaunas ( blue)-OE hens-and my EE's the eggs all are dark green-green-brilliant blues and some are speckled green. They produce gorgeous muffed chicks which I had hatched out all Summer ( under broodies). YOU WILL GET SOME STRAIGHT COMBED CHICKS FROM THESE HATCHES-as the FBCM has straight comb so it will be a 50/50 but the straight comb pullets are just as pretty:) I have 3 I kept- Im waiting to mature fully. I package/ship very carefully-and have yet to have a batch of eggs arrive with any problems( cracked/broken)-all though I must state once the eggs leave my house I cannot guarantee hatchability-

    these will be shipped on or around Nov 19th Here are lots of pictures from this Summer

    Do you have any pictures of the chicks that you hatched yourself ? Not baby pictures right after they hatched but what they looked like later?

    Your Olive Egger hens are very lovely! I've never seen OE with that color/pattern. What did you use for the initial cross to create them?

    Will their babies look the same?

    Quote:to get those I crossed a favorelle x Ameracauna roo over a green egg laying EE hen

    The "twins" were the result

    The twins are now crossed with a pure FBCM roo producing some dark colored chicks like the ones listed-hopefully you will see the other colors coming out as I requested some of my friends to post photos of their birds from me-

    Sorry, but I just cleaned up the camera and my uploads so I don't have any little chicks pics. [​IMG] However, they hatched very well, 7 out of 9 shipped all the way to Texas in the heat, and the chicks were fat and extremely healthy!

    Oh, Natalie is lovely [​IMG] What about any of the others whose backs are just notivable in the picture? Are they from the same batch of eggs? I am trying to figgure what color chickens I could get from this cross.

    Hope some more of you have pictures to post. I would really, really love to see them.
