I have Buff Columbian Brahma bantams, large fowl Brahmas (cockerel is gold, 2 gold girls, 1 blue partridge girls and 1 lemon pyle girl), Cream Legbar and Salmon Faverolle.  Someone is doing a test hatch for me on the CLBs and I haven't tested the LF Brahma or Faverolles yet but hoping to do that soon.   What I am really looking for are 6 Wheaten Marans hatching eggs - got some Blue laced Barnevelder and Exchequer leghorn eggs due 6th April to go in the incubator.  If anyone has some Wheaten Marans that can sell me some eggs for then I would be very grateful.

I'll be there Lozzer but only have my LS. You can have some of those if you like. The show birds that I have are absolutely beautiful and very big too.

I have the following eggs to trade.

1) Light Sussex that both look the part and act it too. They lay like crazy. This year I have two seperate breeding pens.

2) Welsummers

3) Welsex ( yes I just invented the word ) which produce sex linked chicks from Welsummer cocks run with Light Sussex hens.

4) White Campbell ducks.

I'm looking for blue egg layers and possibly some more Welsummers.

Hi Bodger - I have some Pure Cream Legbar pullets eggs (laying for around 2 months now) which are (I think) quite a nice blue, and some Cream Legbar hens, laying slightly more greeny blue egg (weighed one yesterday at 60 grams) , which I am crossing back to an Olive Egger, and an Olive Egger female crossed to a Cream Legbar male. Plus I can offer dark Welsummer eggs crossed to a Cream Legbar.  All the birds are good egg layers

I have had a couple of folk test them for me just before Chrimbo, and after posting fertility seems very high 11 from 12 and probably as good from another lot, but she can't candle the Welsummer eggs as too dark.  I think they got scrambled in the post but there were still 3 pullets and male hatched from first lot.

Don't have a lot of any of them so it would need to be a mix if that would suit, but you can say which you prefer and I shall do my best on the day.  I can send out as soon as you like.

I am interested in yours as in the piccies you posted your birds look very fine and a good size plus as you say they are good egg layers.

No problems with that I could do with leaving having your eggs for a few months but should be able to let you have some LS within the month.

Hi Bodger,
Out of interest what colour are your WelSex eggs, are they dark?

If we have a break in the West country this year, I should be able to fix you up with some Birmingham Rollers.
