Can this happen in Spring '12?

That's the $64K question... 

How likely are we going to be able to get Canadian hatching eggs into the US this coming year? :please:

DC is 90 minutes...

I was going to wait until the genetics discussion cranked up, to determine if a roadtrip would be advantageous to our stock here down south. 
But my impatience got the best of me. :oops:

Re: Can this happen in Spring '12?

I understand the American EO originated from Canadian EOs. I do not know the Canadian source. So the benefit of bringing eggs over the boarder would depend on how much of the genetics made the crossing....

I guess it's time to start really thinking about getting going our genetics working group isn't it...

The Canadian and American Eos are related, but I think the more we "mix it up" in regards to "new" blood, the better. I think those on the American side will benefit from importing some of our eggs to add to the mix. If it cam be done, I say go for it! If I can help, I will!

I personally think we need to breed our own flocks for a couple of generations then cross them with different flocks but that's just me. I think crossing the Canadian and US flocks will need to happen but "When" would be the question. I personally will not be allowing any new blood into my flock for a few years unless something unforeseen happens.
