Well it is that time a year again and I am having good hatches with most all of my breeds although a few breeds have slowed down due to Molt. Just like last year I am looking to barter eggs or even chicks in return of all the wonderful things made by people here on BYC. Available: feel free to mix and match 1. White silkies and Show girls 2. French Blue and Black Copper Marans 3. True Ameraucanas - (blue and black colored very nice blue eggs) 4. True Araucanas - (blue and black and sometimes lay a light blue egg and all are bilaterally tufted and rumpless ( occasionally I hatch an off colored bird or one with a partial tail but this is by far my hardest breed that I am working with and very much a project) 5. Gray and black Show girls and silkies and Sizzles (I have a sizzle (silkie frizzled feathered) Roo over my avatar show girl and another nice penciled gray SG the result will be some Sizzle silkies, regular silkies, Sg, and FRIZZLED SG!!!! (first time offered) 6. Olive eggers - a mix of Marty (my FBCM sire) over a wheaton Ameraucana (result is always a blue laced bird often looking just like an Ameraucana egg is green but the offspring lay olive) and the F 1 offspring (who's egg is wonderfully olive that is olive throughout the egg on inside as well bred back to Marty. If it is an expensive gift I can also hatch out chicks and send them instead. I know I need: home made natural soaps (and lots of them so I am willing to do this barter with several people) possible painting or drawing of a husky dog (pic will be provided) jewelry ornaments children's stuffed animals, blankets, clothes, toys There is so much out there that is you post what you make I am sure I will want it for myself or someone else. See my BYC page or website for some pics of my birds or read my feedback. I will not send out eggs/chicks until gift is received as I was burned a few times last year, but I can assure you that you will receive what ever you decide and it will be packaged VERY well (see my post on how I package eggs) I am true to my word.
