    I was just going to toss the extra 5 Thursday night, but thought I would offer the hatch to anyone interested. I won't charge anything for the precious babes, you'd just have to pay for their shipping, or if you're in the Los Angeles/Orange County area, or not :) but willing to drive (I drove to San Diego to get my pair). My phone is down, I am using a super old cell phone, but below are pictures of Talia (hen) and Ivy (roo, of course we thought he was a girl when we got him as a chick, and of course he ended up a roo, but we couldn't part with him, he's so handsome and lovely).

    If anyone's interested, my hen went broody, so I let her keep her eggs. They'll be hatching in about two weeks. Just FYI, I am not a breeder or anything, my birds are strictly pets, and loved and spoiled. I only know that my hen and roo came from two separate batches of eggs, and they're about a 3 weeks to a month apart old, of course all traced back to Greenfire, but I believe the person I drove 100+miles to pick up my beloved house birds ordered them from Mother Nature's daughters. Talia's going on two, and I heard that dwarfs don't lay for long, so this may be her second and last hatch (her first hatch went to a friend and a fan in Eureka). I can post some recent handsome pictures of my roo, who loves to showboat for photos, and my hen, but there are already some photos of them here, :)

    Hey! I was the "friend" who got three baby chicks last year! They're all doing very well, one turned out to be a roo and the two others are hens. The roo is very protective of his girls! All three are different colors and very pretty (since they're a "land race"). Anyway, you should get in on these if you can, they're extremely beautiful and very curious chickens (they always come out to see you). Also, they don't seem to be afraid of anything, they completely ignore the dogs. (Plus, they're quite rare, and it would be nice to get these going again, a true tiny gem). Lastly, their eggs are amazingly cute!

    I definitely want to come over to see them when they're hatched! Are you going to do the chick hatching cam again?

    Hi, I'm a newly on this forum, so I apologize if this is an old post and now obsolete.
    My name is Bruce, email is [email protected], and I am very interested in the Olandsk Dwarf breed, and am trying to start my own flock.
    I live in Northern Utah, and would like to buy from you if you still have these available.
    Thank you for your consideration.
    Sincerely,
    Bruce
