I have been working for the last few years on an exciting new project! The idea is to create something like a "Speckled Sussex" - a dual purpose, average sized, good layer, but something that comes in many more exciting mottled colors, like blue mottled, gold mottled, some with more white and some with less, etc. Progress has been going great! Lots of new colors have arrived. The latest include "PUMPKIN" mottled - a solid dark orange all over, with mottling and no black! Other exciting colors include Creole mottled, (what I call "Confetti") and a Buff Mottled hen with a blue tail. Please note that this is a work in progress, and they are still smaller than what I'd like. They are not banty sized, but a little smaller than a Leghorn. Hens weigh about three to four pounds. They are terrific, reliable layers of small tinted eggs. Very healthy and robust little chickens. Gorgeous rainbow of colors. I am currently looking for new breeders wanting to help with this project, please check out my web site www.alohahchickens.webs.com to see info and photos. The "Buy It Now" is for TWO DOZEN PLUS EXTRAS hatching eggs, from two breeder pens. Pen #1 has a Red Mottled roo with hens of various Mottled colors. Most or all of the chicks hatched from Pen #1 will show mottling of various colors. They will look much like the parents, shown here in these photos. Pen #2 has various small, very colorful hens, running with a rooster who is half Aloha, and half New Hampshire Red. The New Hampshire Red makes him much larger than the hens. These chicks may or may not show mottling, but they will all CARRY mottling, and when chicks from Pen #1 are crossed with the larger chicks from Pen #2, you will get many colorful babies, that will also have improved size. I have a total of three roosters and 15+ hens so there is sure to be lots of variety in your chicks. Eggs will be individually wrapped in bubble wrap and surrounded by peanuts. Shipping is in a medium size flat rate Priority box. I will fit two dozen in there, plus extras if there is any room. Box will be shipped on Tuesday, April 19th. I cannot gurantee hatch rates, due to handling of post office, but I will offer you one dozen replacement eggs FREE, you just pay shipping, if for any reason you do not have any chicks hatch out for you. Thanks so much for looking!
