    I have the splits almost grown out to make lav cuckoo olive eggers/easter eggers. Not sure if I will have the room to seperate them for breeding, but the potential is there. Anybody regional want them let me know!

    I have a friend working on lavender cuckoo large fowl orpingtons. He got some barred birds from our white orps crossed to black orps and is crossing them to lav project orps. I can't wait to see how they turn out.

    No, sorry. I just sold a project pair for pets, but am keeping the remaining birds to see how they finish out and put together our line for next season.​
