    Do you need a blue? I might be able to retrieve one of the 3 splashs I sold last year. I hatched eggs from @ronott1 .
    They were hatched 5/23/14.
    These pics are from 7/31/14.

    Crystal sorry to hear this! Wish you luck in finding a rooster.

    Unfortunely the 8 that I hatched out about three or four years ago I let go to someone, I think they let them all FB to someone else and I don't know of anyone around here with them other than you. Too bad I didn't keep mine and breed them on. I just lost interest in them.

    Thanks, Draye. I hope that I can find one. There are still a few people that have them over in OK. I have put a message out of the Facebook page.

    Crystal, so sorry to hear about your birds! Hopefully you can find a new boy. I had one spare cockerel last year but he is recessive white I believe and I rehomed him. Good luck.

    I can't get a blue - just a splash.
    Will that work for you?

    I have a box ready to go, $10.
    I'll have to weigh him first to see what priority shipping would be. probably around $50?
    No charge for the bird itself - IF I can get him & you are good with a splash.
    Let me know.
    Thanks! Hopefully I can help.

    A splash works for me. That is what my primary breeder is right now. I appreciate the help. Even if I find one locally I always like to have at least two in case of accidents. Just let me know. Thank you so much.

    Crystal, if you cant find one locally i could give you a blue cockerel... I ve never shipped any birds so dont know what the rules are. Just let me know how you make out and then we can figure out the logistics if you still need one.

    Thank you very much. My splash rooster did die yesterday. Luckily I have about a dozen eggs I have collected so far. They should be fertile for another couple of days which will (barring incubation issues) give me a good start on spring chicks.
