    I have been on several waiting lists for several months. I have paid for eggs that have not arrived yet. I have sold many things that I loved and regreted selling in order to have enough money for these "Golden" eggs, and now I FINALLY have some!!! [​IMG]
    Last night a "local" breeder let me know she had some BC and wheatons and blue Marans that I couls pick up today if I wanted. So I emptied my Pay pal account to her and had to go to the bank for the rest. I drove 2 1/2 hours today in order to get them, but I believe it was worth it!!
    Look at my wonderful eggs from Cree Farm!!

    I took several pictures and even some with my darkest Welsummers (They are off to the right one row empty between in the group shots) and I still can't seem to get the "Actual" color of these babies. They are just beautiful.
    Thanks Lisa and Gary!

    they are beautiful! did you manage to snap any pics of the birds? How big were the parent birds? I hear some of the wheatens can be gigantic, and lay the best, biggest, darkest eggs.
