    I'm relisting!

    >>

    This pen is mixed for the Winter and as I separate, I'll sell eggs since their production has picked up. Some of the pics show birds other than Orps, but those are older pics, and these have been Orps only for months. My birds are big, heavy, friendly, productive layers, and we select for size, shape and temperament. The color projects will be separated in March.

    We have 6 Isabel F1s, which will produce either an incomplete Gold-Laced Split to Lavender or Isabels. We have Lavenders, Blue, Splash, and Lavender Split. All eggs will be split to or showing Lavender. These are housed together. I will provide 8+ fresh eggs, based on what they give me. The previous winners each got 12.

    Because this is a mixed pen, I'm starting the eggs low, but keeping the auction short, so keep an eye on it!!

    What color is Isabel, pardon dumb question. I think your birds are lovely, just have never heard of that color.

    Quote:Isabel is gold and black both diluted by the Lavender gene. It looks like a straw color with a lavender color. Porcelain is simply a Mille Fleur diluted by Lavender, so if you look at a Porcelain and ignore the white spangles, that's an Isabel. Here is an F1 from the Isabel project:

    And here's a Porcelain (different breed, obviously):

    I'd show you a pic of an Isabel Orp, but I haven't got any to show you- my first hatch was a loss due to malfunctions, and this is a very new project.

    I hope I get to hatch the first! Maybe tomorrow!

    Quote:Lucky, not one hatched for me. I don't understand it. Non-shipped eggs in there hatched. Just not these.

    So depressing, I really think there's a ^%$&( at my post office. [​IMG]
