    Thanks Jody couldn't do a great job hatching if it wasn't for the care you take of your birds and the great job you do in shipping the eggs to us.

    Thanks Speckledhen they are something aren't they.

    Quote:Hmmm, so you know the next big chicken trend? Now that lavender is the new 'black copper marans', what will be the next 'lavender'?
