    I'm getting a trio of mottled bantam cochins tomorrow. I don't have any cochins just yet, but I have some frizzle eggs from DDD that are BBS. Could I put the BBS with the mottleds, or would there then just be a mix?

    I havent seen mine yet either he he! That's awesome about the roo winnin a ribbon! You willing to sell hatching eggs from them in the future? If so I SERIOUSLY want to be on the list. I'd like a few more mottleds and im not exactly sure how the gene works, plus it'd be nice ot have different blood. [​IMG] So put me down if you're willing to sell! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    No problem, that would put you #3 on the mottled list! Maybe I would be willing to trade you for some quail eggs? [​IMG]

    I don't know if I'd be able to do a dozen. I'll only have two hens, so it would take about a week to get enough eggs! Unless you wouldn't mind them being a bit old?

    true! LOL! Kay well maybe when your hens are both laying one a day, as many as you can gather for me in three days? And I'd send ya out 10+ eggies of whatever colors you want of my coturnix. Plus if my cochins are laying then I'll give ya few gifts if ya want [​IMG] Or my silkies or my sexlinks, or my mutts. blah blah blah you get the picture. [​IMG]

    Oh, I forgot about you and your silkies! I have 5 now, 1 male and 4 females. I could toss some of their eggs in with. They are pet/breeder quality though. The roo has a straight comb, and none of them have very good feathering on their legs. I'll have my bators more or less full before too much longer, so I'll have to wait for them anyway! Plus the cochins won't start laying again (if they even are now) for a few weeks at least, so it will be a while.
