    Yes, the Pita Pintas can lay some pink speckled eggs.

    One of the Partridge Penedesencas lays a rose colored egg sometimes.

    Rhodebars should lay eggs similar to the Pita Pintas.

    I was going to look up the Jaer, but you posted some. They look nice. Are they hard to come by..eggs? I am pretty much done hatching though, serious..I am so tired of it now. Finally. But if they sell chicks somewhere?

    Lacey Blues, I wish you would do a short review of the new Transformers movie for us on my thread. I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks Ron and Lacey I was looking on Jeffers last night for vitamin D and found some. But if the nutri drench or rooster booster has it I can get that at tractor supply. And I will take him out of the pen to feed him for a while. We keep yogurt around. I will see what else I can pick up for the calcium boost he needs.
    I appreciate your help so much. Thanks again. :)

    I got mine from Sandhill Preservation in Iowa. They're still quite rare in the US.

    I forgot to mention that the chicks are sexable as day olds. They're great flyers so they need to be completely free range, in covered pens or very high fences.

    The following thread has been quiet lately but some of the people there have them and perhaps you could get eggs there.

    I live pretty close to the boundary set for Vidalia onions so I can't call mine Vidalia onions so maybe I can call mine Peach onions. We are famous for our peaches here in Peach County.
