I have just received two for the incubator, they are medium sized cream eggs, one is very glossy, the other matt so I am not sure which is more likely. I would say the ones I have are on the smaller side of medium.


P.S. Can anyone phonetically (sp? :oops: ) spell the way you pronounce this breed for me please. I guess as I could potentially be to owner of a pair of them, I had better gen up about the breed!

Respectfully, is that not a German word? If so, "For Verk" is what a German would say.

Don't know if it's correct, but everyone I know pronounces it as Nigel has posted. :wink:

Words in different languages can be mispronounced but still understood. Bit like Volkswagen - how would a German say that? And how do we say it? :oops:

Sorry, now I read that post again it just looks like I'm showing off :oops:

Have loved Vorwerks since forever, but never heard anyone in this country say the name, so guessed it must be "Forverk"

Didn't think that at all kated. :roll: You may be correct! :)

I don't really know for sure, just that I say it as Nigel posted & so do others I know. :wink:

OK, I've just previewed this and the pictures are too small. I will have a play around later and see if I can make them any bigger. Until then, proper sizes are on my gallery page (Ed Turner)
