    I have a point -of- lay pair of lavender project orpintons for sale. Both birds are lavender. The roo is part Dick Hortsman stock, and the pullet is from Wildhorsefarm in NC. He is 6 months, she is 5 months or so. From what I can tell they do NOT have the mottling gene, that is why I am selling them. Type is good on the roo, still soon to tell on the pullet. If you pick up you can choose from 2 siblings. Sorry, I am keeping all my blacks and splits at this time.
    We're in SE TN 1 hour north of Chattanooga, 1 hour south of Cookeville, 45 West of Dayton. you can mapquest Fall Creek Falls state park or 37327.

    The fence is actually making a pattern over the roo in this pic. He's not really checkered. [​IMG]

    What is the complication or implication of NOT having the molting gene?
    Thanks.

    Quote:Some early Hinkjc lines have shown a possibility of mottling that not everybody wants. I actually want it, and only plan to use birds that show it in juvenile feathering. These did not, and are not related to the ones I have that do.


    Forgot to add- *May consider trades*

    [​IMG] so wish you could ship! Think I will file a complaint with the PO for our area for not being set up so we can ship in and out of tree easily. So not fair. [​IMG]

    I wish I could too. I think if they do end up closing some of the POs, ours will be one of the first to go. Not like I am crazy about the place though- you cannot even buy a stamp after hours! For 2 counties!

    Looks like they don't have transport room, so these great birds are still available [​IMG]
