    Even in the Brinsea, that's a huge gamble. I think I would rather spend $500 on chicks than $250 on eggs. There's so many faults in the breed, and so much to learn, I'm just going to try and breed out what I have and improve. If that doesn't work, then I will drop some money next time

    I would pay $150 for these if I knew I could hatch 4 pullets

    You want to be #2 on the free Ameraucana egg list next year? Trade you for those BCMs if they turn out like you like [​IMG]

    I got Bev Davis line from Brian. Not $250 a dozen, but not cheap either. I would rather work with the faults in the BD line rather than the white, etc from the LP line.

    Done!

    By the the time I grow out the Ameraucanas I could sell my EE flock for a profit and have REAL Ameraucanas. I like that idea.

    If either of you end up with "not SOP" eggs I'd love to put some of them in my incubator next spring.

    I think there's going to be quite a few people on here with some nice eggs by next spring [​IMG]
