    this is my third year trying to get this variety...to no avail. I tried multiple batches from an ebay'er last year with 0% hatch, I think 4 batches at least and a couple hundred bucks. Does anyone have any????? [​IMG]

    I got my eggs from gamebirdsonly, on one of the swap threads.

    I think I remember a PM from you asking, I'm not sure though? Sometimes I'm terrible at responding to PMs.

    My chicks are hatching now, I think I may have a Platinum baby! [​IMG]

    Well, as of right now I think I have two babies out. The other was darker colored and I think might be Blue. A friend of mine really wants to start working with Dun in Sumatra, so we'll be sharing these birds. Depending on how things work out, how many more hatch, etc. We'll probably have chicks to share later on. [​IMG]

    I think I'm going to get some more eggs from gamebirdsonly though later this year, just to see if I can hatch out a few more. There were 3 eggs under my broody yesterday that hadn't hatched, I'm going to check on her again this afternoon.

    ETA: How are your Tolbunts doing???
