    You goofball!! hahaha-the lavs are a slooow project for me. Right now all my splits are "coming of age" for egg laying. I had 1 lay eggs for a week or so then nothing in about 6 weeks. I am selling my last frizzle girl Tomorrow night which empties that adorable breeding coop-then I will put 5 of the oldest splits in there-for purity and to get ready for eggs:) Im praying they will start to lay soon so I can get a few batches of eggs in the bator before winter. remember I only have a 25% chance of getting pure lavs...so I will have to put in alot of eggs:) That or I might get real lucky and get a few to hatch out ....we'll see

    [​IMG] Goofball, yep that would be ME [​IMG]

    My best guess on the 25% would be for every 10-12 chicks you'll get 2-3 pures. That's the way it's working out for me on my Coronations.

    My lav's will NOT lay [​IMG] None of mine have laid well this year. I'm going to have to go show them the frying pan.

    Quote:I would love to get 2-3 out of 12 eggs! Im hoping that I can throw 40+ in bator at once and get 12 lavs:) wouldnt that be great!!! I better have at least 6 girls dang it-I think I just realized that of the 8 splits I kept 2 are now boys-I knew 1 was but then today I saw another fighting with the confirmed boy and I thought [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]...That smaller one was showing a few gold tiny thin feathers in its hackles-how do you get rid of them???
