    My Lemon Blue Cochin project produced a March 30th hatch of 15 chicks- 6 Buff, 6 Blue & 3 Black. I had 100% fertility on 18 eggs with 15 coming to term.

    Chicks change dramatically as they mature so my hope is that 50% of the chicks will be Lemon Blue. The only chick I hatched from this mating last fall is a pullet with the perfect Lemon Blue coloring. She is the twin of her mother, Elizabeth.

    Here are pics of my Lemon Blue flock.

    Hatching eggs are $25 for 1/2 doz. Shipping is included. I use USPS Priority mail with delivery confirmation. I take PayPal at [email protected]

    Please understand that this is a "project" & that not all chicks will be the desired Lemon Blue. Don't hesitate to contact me for any additional questions or pics.

    Thank you.

    Quote:I don't think there would be any problem with shipping. I just sent some to New Mexico yesterday. I have had good luck with people ordering hatching eggs from me of other varieties.

    Let me know if I can help you.

    What are the chance of getting that beautiful lemon and blue coloring? If I ordered 6 eggs does that mean they could be buff, blue or black? Do you include any extras?

    Quote:If you look at the pic of the chick, you will see that it started out Buff/Blond. As it matured ( 1 week in the 2 pics) it started to get the blue feathering on it's wings.

    I can post pics tomorrow of the chicks that hatched yesterday. You will be able to see that at least 50% of them have the potential to be Lemon Blue.

    That would be great. I'd love to see more pictures of this breed. Are they really rare, as I haven't seen or heard of these very much, but then I'm kinda new to chickens. Right now I have a broody sitting on 6 eggs, but I would love to try these. Will you be selling them in the next few weeks if I can't figure something out sooner, as I don't have a bator?

    Quote:Lemon Blue is a color I have been working on...I wouldn't say they are "rare" but there are not too many out there.

    Yes, I will be selling them until the girls decide that it's time to go broody. I'll post pics of the chicks tomorrow.

    Payment sent..I hope to get a few of the lemon blue (they are gorgeous!!) ..but the other color possibilities will be a welcome addition also. This will also give me the opportunity to add some new lines to my Cochins.

    Thanks!!
