    Introducing part of my future breeding stock! These came from eggs from a man named Greg Marlett. He is very new to selling hatching eggs (we were his first sale) but he is honestly the NICEST breeder we have bought eggs from excepting those we have bought from on BYC. I would HIGHLY recommend him.

    Cyn, his packing wasn't as good as yours, but it was close! LOL

    His breeding stock is only a year old, but they are already gorgeous. We might even talk him into getting an account here so you can all see them. [​IMG]

    Here are the babies you pic addicts....

    Versace (pronounced vair-saw-chee) the Splash (obviously a rooster, LOL)

    Pez the Blue

    Tina the Blue (I think she is blue because of all the yellow on her, but what do I know, LOL )

    [​IMG]


    Genie the Blue (I also think she is blue for the same reason as Tina)

    [​IMG]


    Whoopi the Black (Look at that cute little eyebrow!! )

    [​IMG]



    Cyn, how am I doing on the color guessing? I know that from my eggs from Catalpa, I got three birds that we were sure were black. But as they began feathering out, we realized that two of them were really just a really dark blue. So I am really hoping that that is the case here, LOL.

    Jess, I've about given up on guessing some of the dark blue vs blacks. I've been fooled before with one really dark blue I had. They are really beautiful!

    Thanks everyone! I think that they are simply gorgeous, but then I am partial [​IMG]

    TuffOldHen, that is too funny. Can't wait to see your fluffer bums!

    Cyn, I went outside today and told Valentine about all of the new hunnies inside, and he seemed pleased. [​IMG] I think these girls will be a perfect match for him.
