    I think that would make him blue cuckoo split for chocolate, not lavender... He is interesting and beautiful!

    Looks Lavender than blue. But I accept being corrected.

    Thanks for the compliment . He may produce even more beautiful chicks if mated with a chocolate hen.

    It looks like he has some nice lacing. I say blue for that and for his parentage. You need lavender carried on both sides to get lavender offspring. He could make mauve chicks- my favorite! I posted his link on the english orpington thread. He is stunning.

    Sorry, I don't know the first thing to ship a live animal. I'm sure it involves getting the right type of shipping container, overnight shipping and so on. I'm sure that will add shipping cost too. :( ... unfortunately that's the most PM i seems to be getting where people asking me if I will ship him :(

    On a different note, if anybody want to drive my way, I can meet half way (to a reasonable distance [​IMG] I should say) ...
