Congrats on your culling down to your selected breeders and I wish you luck on your next generation. Could you point out some of the qualities that you like in your breeders, and also what your hoping to improve on them? You have already hatched from them correct? If so how are you liking the young ones so far?
 The ones with the white feet are your Cuckoo Marans.
I don't have a male EE but I do have many Cream Legbar males available, they carry the blue egg gene. I may be a bit far though, Im in Rockingham County. Your are welcome to PM me if you have any interest.

The chicks in that coop are getting very large and need the space so I decided this past week to allow them to sleep on the roosts in the run, though I know its not a smart idea because a raccoon would have access to them. I have the hardware cloth I just need to get some wire cutters. Im going to do it tomorrow for sure. Thanks for the scare to...
I am absolutely impressed by the size of Plymouth Rocks. Mine are still very young at nearly nine weeks old but the size is great compared to all the other breeds I have raised in the past and currently. I got a picture today of my 9yr old DD holding an almost 9week old chick and I was amazed how large the chick is in her arms. I told my DH that Im really thinking I might go strictly with BPRs for now on. Not only for the size but laid back, friendly personality to...
