    Thanks! I am putting the marans roo back in the coop tonight if the storms hold off long enough. Musical coops! Then I can start shipping eggs again in a few weeks. [​IMG]

    Those were a few of my blue wheaten eggs. Supposedly some lines of blacks (or BBS) lay the blue-est, but I don't raise them. I have a couple blacks in with my lavenders but the eggs look the same as my wheatens.

    Wow! Those eggs are great! I have four Olive eggers, I hatched from Alicefelldown, here on BYC. (well, I hatched 8, but 4 were roo's) They are the sweetest birds, and really beautiful! They are about 5 1/2 months old. They look really ready to lay, so any day now...... [​IMG]
