    I had some eggs from auction and ended up with one Texan, 2 dark ones, and 5 silver one a tuxedo

    Is this a good colour? Rare as I see it stated or a genetic failure lol

    I can't seem to find any info or a cock bird or eggs for them so I can match them up I'm in uk

    Here they are

    WOW![​IMG]:love [​IMG] LOVE the colors !!!!!! cannot get them in the states b/c of all the costs etc to import....maybe someday we'll have access...i hope ...[​IMG] in the meantime those of us who are in the U.S. will just continue to DROOOOL. Do not hesitate to post photos as often as you like ...we who are deprived of such colors don't mind seeing them from those who have!

    I wish we could get those colors here! The closest I've come to something 'different' is a rosetta tuxedo that I hatched last year who had a very blue tint on her feathers.

    How much would it cost for eggs to be shipped over Shelly? about a dozen eggs?
