    I love Easter eggers hehe :D
    I'm collecting some eggs from my own flock, I've got a young red laced black Wyandotte cockerel who's has just started last week attempting to mate with one of my australorp mix hens, not sure if he's been successful yet but I'm collecting the one hens eggs to try and incubate anyway :) I'm super excited to start hatching eggs from my own flock

    I'm also really excited to see what their offspring will look like. The cockerel is just regular but the hen has very unusual colouring especially since both her parents were black "australorps", this girl looks nothing like an australorp lol. It's interesting how you can get such a variety, genetics are so interesting but complex at the same time haha
