    Looking for the following eggs to hatch as soon as the weather gets warm enough to ship them.

    Pure barnevelders
    Dutch Bantams preferably blue cross ( Bl bl x Bl bl)
    Bantam EE or any other bantam colored egg layers

    I will have dutch bantams, but all I have is one blue roo and one blue splash hen, so there wouldn't be many.

    ETA: Just noticed your Bl bl x Bl bl cross specification, the roo I have is from blue splash roo and a black hen [​IMG]

    If it's from a blue splash and black the resulting genetics is Bl bl... splash is Bl Bl or 2 blue genes and black is bl bl or no blue. Blue is one gene. That's actually the reason I want eggs from that combo. They will throw all 3 colors in one hatch. 50% blue, 25% splash, and 25% black.

    Ideal explains it and that's my backup plan if I don't find eggs. https://secuservices.com/ideal/newideal/selectproduct.aspx?qty=1&ID=BLDB&Product=978

    blue roo and splash hen should result in 50% splash and 50% blue.

    Ah, okay, so it is eggs from both blue parents that you are looking for? Got it now. I still haven't totally figured out the blue genetics!! [​IMG]
