    well she was nice enough to give me one of her GT eggs on my last order...it did in fact hatch, then died 4 days later [​IMG]

    BUT, another white hatched that i didn't expect, this is what she/he looks like now at about 4 weeks

    Awesome! They are tricky little monsters. With the hatches, mortality is being observed. I am sticking dozens at a time and pumping chicks up them up with poli vi sol in hopes that will help them. I lost a few but some are standing at 2 weeks [​IMG]

    It's a very tricky pattern to develop, and the pics on BYC seam to get deleted.

    Quote:Joe, looks great! How long has it taken to even get the pattern that far? Can't wait to see the final product.
