    Up for consideration are a half dozen plus extras of Crested Cayuga Eggs. This is a pure white crested male over a pure Cayuga hen. I have checked the fertility on these eggs and everyone has been fertile thus far. I am hoping the offspring will look a bit like Sonews Chuckie Duckie that is Crested crossed with Mallard. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=249678 This thread has a pic of him. I ship all of my eggs as I would want mine to arrive, in other words I pack to the max for protection. This auction is for the next 6 eggs laid, but I can add a few extras if you want to wait a couple of days for them. Up to you. The pen is kept very clean and the eggs have minimal dirt/debris on them for a better hatch. I check the nest several times a day to ensure they don't get too cold.

    ETA: Please keep in mind this cross can produce both crested and non-crested ducklings.

    I have 5 orders of eggs coming in this week and next to hatch. If possible, save me spot to get a few duckie eggs of yours next month. I definitely want some of your crested cayugas!

    Are the parents of these eggs both Cayuga's? So are these the ones that lay the really dark eggs that lighten up after a time? I'm trying to learn more about Cayuga's and would like to raise some this spring.

    Thanks,
    Patty
