    I have about 60 lavender and split eggs in the Bator. They are from two separate breeding pens I have setup : Lav rooster over black and split hens, and Lav split rooster over Schaffer Lav hens. I hope to improve on size and feather quality. Some are large and extra fluffy in the rear and the split hens could use some size. Just crossing my fingers that I get a few NICE Lavender girls and at least one nice Lav rooster to replace mine who is a JERK!

    I love my projects and my ultimate goal is to improve the lavenders without sacrificing type and quality.

    Try to hatch it, it might be fertile, you never know. Congratulations!

    I am going to hatch it anyway. My BF keeps telling me that first eggs after a break/pullet eggs are not fertile but my Crested Cream Legbars have just proved him wrong. [​IMG] If it's not broken it goes in the bator...
