    Crushed oyster shell should help but it might take a couple days for the eggs to have hard shells. If you go to the section of the forum that you want your post in and click "start a new thread" then you can get more replies and info from lots of different members.[​IMG]

    Yeah I would have to cross auburn tom + sweetgrass hen, cross offspring, then cross the auburn grey offspring. Or cross auburn male + blackwinged bronze female, cross offspring together and some will be brown winged auburn (b1b1 ee) only one out of 8 though, kinda hard to get that color, maybe I should focus on ones like the Dark Blue Brown or Lavender Edged Bourbon Red (which sounds awesome) for now.

    Crossing two red blue bronzes will produce lavender edged bourbon red
