Is your rooster sweet, but lacks a bit of mojo? (If you know what I mean). A bit of a yard ornament but lacking in virility? Maybe not the best genetics to be passing on.
Or maybe you aren't blessed with a dashing rooster and have a broody hen? Or want to try your hand at hatching with an incubator?
Feeling a bit embarrassed that all your hens produce plain white or boring brown eggs. No need to tell her there'll be no 'special' eggs in her future with her lowbrow genetics. And that's because she doesn't carry the coveted blue egg gene. But you can change all of that: slip her some of the best eggs that money can buy. She will lovingly incubate those precious orbs and produce some of the coolest birds the two of you will ever see.
And 6 months from now you can both stand proud - no need to hang your heads anymore- when your egg customers open their carton to see the jewel box of coloured eggs. They are going to be blown away by the range of blue, green/olive, brown, white or cream eggs that await them. Nothing like the ooos and ahhs of excited chefs to puff up your chest.
And how much is this self-esteem builder going to cost you? A paltry $20. Cheaper than therapy and easier on the wallet.
I live on Gabriola and can bring to Nanaimo for downtown pick up Mon-Thurs. I'll be in Port Alberni Thurs. July 19th and can bring eggs for morning pick up.
Photos are of my rooster, Simon, some of my hens, their chicks and eggs.
