    Wow, looks great, so many different breeds! So would you want to do 6 or 12 eggs?

    Oh sweet, I'm excited to get some of your eggs, Grace! They are gorgeous!
    Hey Alyssa, how about we get a mix of her hamburg, porcelain d'uccle, and mille fleur d'uccles? They look wonderful!

    We have 35 eggs in the bator right now though, not even a full week in, so we can't get any eggs for like three weeks! Busy busy busy... [​IMG]

    Hey, just out of curiousity, does anyone know what you'd get if you crossed a porcelain to a mille fleur? Because isn't porcelain the mille fleur color diluted by the lavender gene?

    Ooh I love genetics! If what your saying is correct, that makes Porcelain an 'albino feather' version of Mille Fleur, right? *ha* I'm thinking it would depend on which gene is dominant, Mille Fleur or Lavendar... I don't think you'd get a mix of the colors. But I could be totally wrong.

    BTW: Grace is EXCELLENT at shipping eggs!

    Silkieluvr, sorry for being random [​IMG] But, could we swap 8 eggs [​IMG]

    Kanchii, thanks [​IMG] I just gotta' find out how you and Silkieluvr are related [​IMG] Actually, 3wks. or more would be perfect timing, because by then I would have had time to ship eggs to the other people wanting some, and my own incubator would be empty [​IMG]

    Countyroad1330 (A.K.A Cammie [​IMG] ), thanks. Hey, shouldn't you have eggs to swap with Silkieluvr, too? Or are all your eggs going straight in the bator [​IMG]

    Quote:Haha, Oh I just stalk her...
    JK!
    Ayssa (silkieluvr) and I were in the same riding group called Pony Club for several years. I had always wanted chickens and one day at a show someone mentioned Alyssa's chickens. So I marched over to her and said "I didn't know you had chickens?! Do you mind if I keep one or two at your house?" And that's where it all began. [​IMG] I'm not in that riding group anymore but I go over to Alyssa's house so often that her parents keep telling me I should just get adopted by them already.

    I feel guilty. After I started keeping my first chicken, Duck, at her house, we descovered what a poultry show was, and she has gone from having about 10 chickens at her house to about 30 now. MY BAD, ALYSSA! [​IMG]

    Quote:For the F1 generation, you would get all Mille's, after that, if you bred the chicks to each other, you would get approximately 25% Porcelains, 50% would be Milles carrying the lav gene, 25% would be pure Mille.

    Mille Fluer is a combination of genes, Porcelains are Milles with the addition of the lav/lav gene.

    The Lavender gene is recessive, other than that particular gene, Milles and Porcelains are genetically identical.
