    I
    was thinking of getting some eggs from her rosecomb splash pens but am now heading up to PA to get some from the original breeder I received mine from. I can't take the chance of freezing eggs right now but will definitely keep this in my back pocket.

    Anyways, thought you might like to see some of her birds.

    I think her sumatras are top notch! and the bantam lakenvelders are really pretty....

    What do you think?

    Getting some from the origional breeder makes the most sense. The absolute best way to screw up birds is to mate birds from 2 different strains.

    I thought so too. She said she had a bad predator problem that wiped out almost ALL of her lakenvelders so she won't be selling any for a year or so [​IMG]

    Hey Kaylee, I only have 1[​IMG] rosecomb egg. They don't lay very often especially in the winter and this egg is a bit oblong so Im hoping it will hatch. I have it in with some cochin eggs just to keep it company IF it hatches. I think it may have been slightly frozen as well [​IMG] so this is this egg is against all odds.... but my sweet sgt. pepper is the daddy so Im really hoping.
