Pure Sparkly Hatching Eggs


SKU: N/A Category:

Pure Sparkly is now available from the German Sparkly Collection. While this variety can hold its own as a meat or egg production bird, it is also an ideal bird to cross breed to other varieties. On its own, Pure Sparkly can add nice color contrast to a mixed flock. It is nearly as dark as Rosetta or Tibetan, but remains feather sexable to the trained eye, allowing for easier breeding and husbandry.

Pure Sparkly birds can be crossed to any color to produce and endless combination of plumage patterns. The Sparkly gene appears to amplify almost any color or plumage pattern without decreasing bird size. This is a unique color collection not only for its beauty and rarity, but also due to its jumbo size. The gene has a striking effect on varieties like Italian, Pearl Fee, Falb Fee, and even wild type. Pearl Fee Sparkly and Italian Sparkly become speckled on the entire bird, Falb Fee Sparkly males exhibit grey, brown, or peach tones through the ventral plumage, which is normally fully diluted, and wild type Sparkly males exhibit a deep brown diamond pattern on the ventral plumage, which is normally solid copper. The more we study the sparkly gene, the more it impresses us.

What to expect: Pure Sparkly should hatch 100% true and reach jumbo or near jumbo weights. While it is possible for Pure Sparkly birds to carry recessive traits, we have not observed this in our flock. Sparkly can also interact with or mask other genes, such as Pansy, Extended Brown, or Fawn.
