    Not sure that this post goes here, but I just wanted to see how much interest there would be in some Hiro & EE cross eggs?

    I am getting the bator fired up for a test hatch this weekend.

    Some girls lay blue/green eggs and some have the pink eggs. I would think any resulting hens would at least have tinted eggs (Hiro is out of tinted Silkie egg and Phoenix lay white to tinted)
    I would guess that the chicks would be bearded and muffed. Not sure about feet type and skin color, or even if they would end up with some sort of crest, but they should have some very interesting feather patterns.

    I don't expect my girls to be laying consistently until probably mid-March.

    Just wanted to see if there would be any interest. [​IMG]

    I will also get pics of my girls ASAP.

    I might be interested. I don't come home till may so I can't hatch anything until then, but I'd love to try my hand at some hatching eggs again. The last ones didn't go so well!

    Oh my! I would love a couple of eggs that Hiro has sired. I think he is just gorgeous.
    Keep me on your list - although I don't have room to separate my broody hen from the others until spring arrives...

    Ange, I wish I were in the market for more chickens! I'd love some muffed mutts!

    Well, you have plenty of time to decide, Buff. [​IMG]
    I think they are going to be adorable, but of course I'm biased.
