    All these chick pictures are making the wait so hard. I cant wait to get my eggs to hatch and then hope to have a successful hatch.

    Come on girls (Aubrey's hens) please start laying good so I can have little one of my own to adore.

    That second pic of the little one screams."I am a handsome roo in the making" adorable chicklet.

    That opinion is based on inexperience with this breed but on sheer body stance, look and attitude. LOL

    I always forget about that...
    I always have it in my head that Isabel is the only gene that dilutes both types of pigment, but Blue does, too.

    So far, I have collected 13 D'Anver eggs from Aimee, Penny and Carly, though only two of those belong to Carly, her very first two eggs. I am setting eggs Saturday evening, along with some of my Stukel Barred Rocks, Delawares and some mixed color Orps (blue x buff), BR x EE and even a few of my banty lav Cochin's eggs sired by either the mille fleur or porcelain D'anver males. All in all, there will be a full 42 egg turner in my Hova, most of which will be sold. My main purpose for the hatch was to get more D'Anver pullets and a couple of BR pullets. The rest are just gravy, LOL.

    That's really good. Mine have pretty much quit laying and the rest haven't started yet.But I have three of those millie eggs that porcelains come out of and one porcelain x Lavender egg in the hatcher. Should see them tonight or in the morning.

    yep the isabel are just the lavender counterparts, both pretty much have a similar effect, they both turn black and dilute gold/reds the lavender's just dilute it more so

    Well, this calls for me to add the last line I didn't add to my post above....you know how we Southerners love our GRAVY! Bwahahahahaha!

    J/K, Rufus will not be eaten. Why would he? He is only a bite or two at most. I can't wait to hatch my first D'Anver babies from my own flock! And, in truth, I think the D'Anver x Lav Cochins will be adorable.
