    Well, I don't think I have what you are looking for, but maybe someone else will want some!


    I have:
    Pet to marginal breeder quality bearded silkies (are PB) in white, black and blue running together. I'm getting mostly black out of these.

    EE bantams crossed with OEGB (these are mutt chickens!)

    I know someone who has Barred Rocks, EE's, and a Black Australorp running together that would probably trade for eggs too. These are standards.

    I would like:
    Bantam cochins in white/black/blue or splash
    Silkies in white/blue/black or splash
    Call duck eggs white or snowy
    Bantam Ameracanas in blue/black/white or splash
    Standard Ameracanas in blue/black/white or splash

    I would consider other things, just ask [​IMG]

    Were you looking for bantam or standard Ameracanas? I have a trio of Bantam EE's that I'm thinking of penning for breeding-it's just that they love to free range and looked so pathetic when I stuck them in there. [​IMG] But these lay pastel green eggs (not the olive color) and are not a recognized color variety-the roo is blue and I've gotten 1 blue chick from them... Anyways.

    Quote:You know I love the blues!! To be honest I don't care what the hen looks like I just think my kids will get a kick out of colored eggs!

    As for my eggs, only the sex links are laying right now. The millies and silkies will have breeding pens built soon and I can swap those eggs after that. Right now they are all mixed in together.

    I have my silkies penned right now, mixed colors of black blue and white-no splashes in there right now. But these are NOT show quality, not even close LOL, well, the one white hen is pretty nice, but I digress...

    I can pen my EE's, but we just had our first snowstorm and a true cold snap here in Wyoming, so who knows if they will hold out with their laying. Plus with only two hens, I really couldn't send very many if you wanted fresh ones LOL

    I would trade for some of your silkies or some of the millie fluers, or we could just do a mixed trade if you aren't getting very many eggs. I know not all my hens are laying right now.


    If you just want something to hatch, I can send you some of my mutt eggs and you can send me some of your mutt eggs LOL
