    HI guys-have a small break in shipments as this batch for the next person in line has to wait till her bator is empty.
    you will get exactly 9 eggs-I have right now and will ship tomorrow. Fertility has been amazing. the percentages on hatching pure lavs are as follows:

    25% pure lavs ( all though its been more like 35%)
    25% pure blacks
    50% splits

    All splits in my pen are black splits-no other colors have ever been involved with these birds. These photos were taken in Fall-I let them all out for the Summer to free range- gives them a nice break!

    I have 12 running around my brooders of different ages as I fertility test every time I load my bator with 2-4 eggs...all have been fertile-hatch rate about 85-90% . My paypal addy is [email protected]-please pay as soon as auction ends so I can get these ready for shipment. thank you~

    My batch are going into lock down tomorrow. Will let you know what I get. Do you have any pics of some older Lavenders that you have held back for yourself?

    Quote:I will in the next few weeks. Have to get a new camera as DH's is at work. I have seen lots of photos of the aged birds and they are so pretty-I had alot of folks hatching them out before me. So there's are alot older-mm let me go back into one of my auctions as I know some of the past sellers have posted photos for me-BRB!

    Pretty! [​IMG]

    Why do all the good auctions have to be when I have money but it's set aside for something else? [​IMG]

    They are so cute and beautiful, all at the same time!

    I am going to have to hook up with you at one point and get some eggs. I can't do it now, but have promised my daughter another silkie. Her's was killed in a freakish accident 3 weeks ago and has been missed every since. Are the lavenders the only color that you have?

    Quote:Im sorry! [​IMG] but thank you! I normally would never do a BIN-I like 3 day auctions but these eggs are either going to go in my bator-which are overflowing or I have to do a quick sale-Im not eating them! haha

    Quote:aww thanks-anytime!!! TRADE??? hahah- Im so sorry about that accident! I hate that when things like that happens [​IMG]. I have all splits---a few pure blacks but they are too young to breed at this point-growing them out...BUT you will get pure blacks from these guys too. I will eventually have another color but thats a project that I "think" is going to take place in Fall??? I have 2 full grown pure lavs that I will be introducing to these girls in another month or so-been waiting ALL Winter for them to grow out:)
