    I watched over the weekend as Lester the Lavender's eggs went for an amazing $200. Evidently the "lavender orp" project is a success.

    I'm wondering what other type of "projects" are going on out there. I know that self-blue and lavender are very desirable to some.
    Do you have a breeding project going on right now, and if so, what breed are you working with and what characteristics are you breeding for?

    Sounds like selling eggs must be a rather successful pastime [​IMG]

    Where does one sell eggs? [​IMG]

    There is also ovabid.com. I prefer eggbid.com and ebay.com

    I have a buff silkie project going on.

    I'm working on Blue Golden Duckwing Old English. I got my first generation hatching right now. [​IMG] I want to get their type as fabulous as my Whites, but they've got a long way to go. It's always a White, BBRed, Wheaton, or some other common color that wins the OE class, I'd like to make a real show stopper out of a rare color!

    Quote:Love to see some pics. I have a buff silkie named Tina Turner and she has a very "red" quality about her. However, I believe that she thinks she's a rooster at the moment.

    Quote:Moody - I love your website. Very professional. Also - amazing art.
    What exactly does duckwing mean in OEB? Longer winged?
