    I was gonna wack a bid on them to till they went over $250.00..maybe next time...she (the seller) told me 15% would hatch plain buff but i ques carrying the gene, but well if you can get the other 75% in the buff cuckoo that would have worked..even then you could cross them to our USA buff orps and get more bloodlines going..

    Quote:Nope, barring is barring, it doesnt hide unless the bird is recessive white, so the ones that are plain buff wont carry the barring gene and its hard to see in the pullets either way, thats kinda the problem I'm having with mine, I really cant tell which of the pullets are lemon cuckoo or just solid buff. But really I just need LC roosters right now and thats the main ones I've gotten. I got three little boys growin off now with nice LC coloring coming in already.

    If I spent that much on eggs, I would have to drive to pick them up and drive them ooooh soooo carefully home.

    No post office shake ups for those babies!

    Sorry... but I don't see what is so spectacular about them. My buff looks almost the same.
