This auction is for one dozen eggs from F4 Generation Isabelle Leghorns. You MUST breed any project bird all the way to F6 before you can call it a finished project. We are doing that and want to extend the opportunity to someone else. To the best of our knowledge, these birds are the only ones in the U.S. These F4 birds exhibit all the characteristics of a Leghorn which include:
Yellow Legs & Beak
Lay Chalk White Eggs
Have Large White Earlobes
Males Weight Cock is 6lbs, Cockeral is 5lbs, Hen is 4.5lbs, & Pullet is 4lbs.
All Leghorns must exhibit this to be Leghorns. These are F4 birds and exhibit these characteristics now. However, they are still a project. You get the ingredients in these eggs to carry out the work. The eggs come from an Isabelle Colored male with both Isabelle colored females and Danish Brown Leghorn females. You will get both Isabelle colored and Partridge colored chicks. You must carry on the work to get the done deal. We want to help and get these birds out there. We do not want to be the only one with them. We reserve the right to refuse sale of these eggs at the conclusion of this auction based upon the buyers need for instant gratification and quick money. We want to seek out a serious breeder with this auction. We have no desire for nothing more.

Isabelle is the Lavender gene and not the blue gene. These birds are self blue and breed true. They lay extremely well like Leghorns. They are flighty as a Leghorn. Isabelle is where black is diluted to lavender, gold to lemon yellow, and mahogany to chocolate. In other words, this is the brown Leghorn diluted in lavender. We began this project in 2008 and are just now to a correct pattern to offer.

These birds were made right here in the good ole U.S.A. Unlike some breeders, we do not have the money to import 'RARE" stuff and put a big price tag on it and call it ours. We worked on this and are proud of the work that was done honestly. Itegrity is priceless. Yes, they have price on them, but how much is real hard truthful breeding worth?

The photo is of the birds before they began laying. Now that they are laying, their combs flop over like the Leghorn is suppose to.
