Not at all. You know how I feel about it. If I can pay a little extra and get something I can rely on, I will definitely go that rout. That is not to say, if I found those eggs on eBay for $10 I wouldn't give them a shot.what the heck? It might be worth my $10. I did find out a few minutes ago that the girl on eBay is on here. Lol. She has not been active on this site since April but I will keep an eye out. I am so new I want to get to know folks on here. Knowledge is power and this is a type of chicken I have never even seen in real life. The more people I know who raises them and can help me understand the breed the better. I am not out to make a buck. I would love to have some to try to explore the breed and keep as pets. I love silkies and ameracaunas. I know this is nor a cross but a mutation in the feathers of Ameracaunas. I have both and I think this would be the ultimate pet. you are fortunate to have some in your flock and I look forward to adding some to mine.
