    Here are some photos I took today of my little buff splashes. These hatched very light blue. They are 5 weeks old. I have some that are white with a little buff but they need to feather a bit more to see the contrast. This is out of my buff roo over buff splash hen

    This makes me want a bator even more. They are so pretty. Will you be selling some of those eggs in the spring?

    Thanks these are all very special to me. I am keeping most of the buffs I think but will be selling some whites and the blues. I think every black i hatched are cockerels.

    They do make you want to squeeze them. I am hoping Dipsy looks at these as she has some due to hatch.
