    I won an Ebay auction for 12 eggs, they sent 14. 6 quit along the way but the other 8 hatched last night [​IMG] Its my first time with getting eggs in the mail so I'm surprised I had such good luck!

    How come the RIW's aren't very popular?? They sure are pretty!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

  3. I don't know if they are not popular or just not known. I have some and they are great. I have a clutch of them ready to hatch on Saturday.

    Quote:I hadn't even heard of them until a few months ago and that was in relation to ISA Browns. I don't know why they aren't as popular, do they lay as well as the Red? I am funny about whites because I free range and they are more visible to predators.

    I have had really good luck with the eggs we have got from ebay.
  9. Quote:They are. Some how the picture looks like they are single comb. They have the same comb as a red.

    They do lay brown eggs just like a red too.
