    I just can't believe the eggs up for auction aren't being snapped up! I think they are so cool! I can hardly wait for some pips & zips and some cute fluffy heads to hatch [​IMG]

    Haha - the first time we got some started birds, they were about 6 wks old and my husband had picked them up in OH during a business trip. He brought them home and I messaged the seller right away to ask what the heck was wrong with these creatures?! They were just in their ugly phase lol. [​IMG]

    These were actually slightly older than the first ugly stage....these were going through their molt--but in the heat of the summer! [​IMG]

    Our first little Creve hatched out today! I've thought it was cute since I first saw it this morning, but as the day has gone on, I'm just more and more loving this little puff ball!
    Just one Creve - the one on the far left. This one is from Rare Feathers. More hatching next week from exop.

    How do they stack up compared to Polish as far as temperament? I have a little polish hen just because I HAD to have a bird with that wild hairdo but I'd rather have a Crev from what I've seen and heard.

    I don't know since my only creve is a baby, but I do like our Polish. She's just loud. She talks about everything she sees & does during the day.
