    I got them at Angel's Rest Farm in Ormond Beach, FL. Some had dark beaks, some had 1/2 1/2, some were all dark. Cute noisy little birds, hope they grow up to be awesome!

    I bought eggs from e-bay and the lavenders are really bad. The feathers look like frizzles and they are not growing. I only have 3 left and they are 4 weeks and still have to have a light in there house. The splits I hatched at the same time are 4 times the size and doing great. The splits are from a different breeder. I have hatched more eggs from other breeders lavender eggs and so far they are growing good .
