Yummy, Chocolate Ameraucanas, we will need another thread for that.
What do the other colors of Eng LF Orps weigh? I know I've always heard that chocolate would make you weigh more, but I doubt it effected the chickens.

My breeders are all under 5 lbs.

There aren't very many LF here. I don't think anyone is currenty selling imported LF chocolates. I know the other big cockerel I got last year is at my business partner's house making LF with her pure english lines. One is here making LF chocolate ameraucanas.

I need to know how you guys do it.... I have 6 jubilee orp eggs, a dozen Breda fowl and 6 cream legbar eggs on my counter. I know the Breda are pure but they are too old to ship and a few are muddy because it was raining and they decided to lay outside. The jubilees and legbars were together and have only been separated almost 2 weeks. I have a full bator and already have 9 Breda doing awesome...so how come I am having a hard time washing these eggs for eating??? I think I am going to lose my mind when I finally get all the breeding pens separated...3 weeks separated should be good right? Those jubilee boys are very busy and I need to put saddles on the girls..


Dr. Keith Bramwell, http://poultryscience.uark.edu/4633.htm stated at our January Incubation Seminar the eggs are fertile by the new male within 48 hours. Set the eggs in your incubator and raise some more. Or donate them to your local 4H club. Either way, don't eat them.

Now can someone tell me what internet video site (cheap) can handle a 2 hour incubation seminar? We are unable to "sell" the seminar, but can post it on line and/or send a DVD copy. Anyone wanting a DVD just send a new DVD to me with return postage and I will be happy to mail you one.

Any one near Sacramento have shipping boxes I can buy? My box shipper didn't send them to me in time and I've promised birds to be shipped soon.

Hey, would it be possible to just paypal you for the DVD and return postage instead of sending you a DVD or is that too much of a hassle? I would love

From my personal experience, yes, wait a couple weeks.

Here is a article someone posted over at the ABC:
