    NO snow then how can you have Christmas???? Humidity not for me. [​IMG] Hate getting out of a shower and thinking/feeling it was dryer in the shower then outside[​IMG] Or going to bed and understanding how an individually wrapped piece of cheese feels.

    I have at least one Olive egger in the easter eggers I ordered. Nasty olive drab colored egg and then when you crack it open you get this bright blue/green inside shell glaring at you. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I willingly admit my extreme dislike for chickens that look like Swiffer dusters or left in dryer to long with out a softener/static cling sheet.

    I also fail to see the reason behind bantam or smaller yet chickens hard to sell such eggs and for baking forget it. but then I am also not fond of dogs under about 25 pounds. THIS is just me not reflection on anyone else's passion for things tiny. I am more then willing to defend your right to have such chickens but find it hard to get excited about them.

    I am currently selling the pee wee eggs calling them diet eggs does seem to help with sales a little. [​IMG]. for a dollar for 18 of them. And they are still the last ones to go. I also have a hard time remembering to tell egg customers if they want to hard boil the eggs they need to leave the eggs on the counter for 2 or 3 days first. because they are so fresh they don't peel right lost of white sticks to the shell.

    Good night all time for shower and then bed with a good book for a little bit before lights out.

    Sweet Dreams and Warm Fuzzies to all prayers for those in need.

    Twist: never heard of putting the brown egg roo over the tinted egg hens. Honestly, I feel like it should work either way. Everyone around here uses an EE or legbar roo over welsummer or marans hens.

    The orps were a lavender splash type. I got them at an auction and I think they were the culls from someone color project. One was practically white. They were gorgeous birds but mean and wild, so I traded them (and my white layers) for a nice brooder.

    One chicken parent carrying two blue genes will get you pullets that lay colored eggs; green eggs from a parent with brown egg coating genes, blue eggs from a parent with white egg genes.

    If you breed Easter eggers, since you are not sure exactly what combination of genes you are combining, you can get pullets that lay any color egg. I have bred a rooster that hatched from a green egg to a hen that laid green eggs and got pullets that laid green eggs and pullets that laid brown eggs.
