    The 2 on the left are barred lavender ducklings, 1 day old. They are now 11 weeks old and I have extra males currently for sale

    I have to get some updated pics but the drake in the back is my pied, barred, lavender breeding drake. He is now about 14 pounds

    Pictured are a juvenile male and female lavender (last years hatch). They do have the white head gene so will not stay solid lavender


    I do not breed for solid colors nor do I breed for "stable" genes. The qualities I breed for are more like foraging ability, broodiness, temperament, and eye appeal. So I mix and match matings a lot so never got all lavenders out of one clutch. Though I do have barred lavenders and solid lavenders.

    I do not sell many hatching eggs but when I do, they are $4 per egg or 6 for $20, and it's a variety. I cannot and do not promise anything but a variety of the colors I list.

    Thank you. I've been working with them for a few years now and LOVE the way they have turned out!

    I wasn't going to go into business with them (though i have a waiting list with locals who want young from mine oddly..). i just was wanting to try to find ones with at least more lavender as loved the duckings seen, and black ones that get greatest beatle sheen, to mix in our flock, and wanted to know more how they'd turn out or look iff tried hatching from.
