    Prefer eggs, but chicks and adults wouldn't be bad either. I would like to buy Grays only please. I don't have room in my bator for colors I don't want. [​IMG]

    I am looking to add new blood to my stock!! If you've got them available and they are out of nice lines, send me an e-mail or PM.

    Thanks

    How are greys different from the blues, I mean what is the difference, I always thought that grey is called blue in the chicken and duck world.

    I like to think of grays as more of pattern.
    I've got to get some updated pictures of my birds, but these are some of my grays.

    This girl is too light, but she has excellent feet, so she stays...

    Now I know what color I have! I have bene trying to figure it out! I have 8 show girls & 2 silkies and most of them (6-7) are evidentally greys! The pattern threw me. The others are 1 white, 1 blue, and 1 dark blue. They are a month old now.
