There's a place just outside Gettysburg (I know, not super close for y'all) that has Wellies and Marans.

York County

 

Hello,  I am very new to the group. In my picture is my daughter starting seeds for her chicken garden this spring. I need to raise chickens this year for the educational oppertunity but also to help cuts costs. I am realy interested in reading about many of you who raise mealworms. I do not know the first thing about it, even though, I thought I was a country girl, but I am very, very interested.

I also am not sure what chicks to choose, when my daughter goes out to the hen house, I would like her to find a "rainbow" of eggs. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions?

Thank you

Hi Ashley!      welcome-byc.gif   

 

Where in York County are you?  I am in the Dover area.   I will be having both pure Amearucana and EE chicks available this spring for blue & green eggs as well as a few French Black Copper Marans chicks for dark brown eggs.  If you are interested I also have some frizzle bantam cochin chicks too.  I also offer hatching eggs for sale if you would rather hatch your own.

 

Sorry I don't know much about raising mealworms, but there is a very good thread here on BYC about raising them.

If you need fertile EE eggs, let me know.  I have a friend with an adorable flock.  My 2 EEs are eggs I hatched from his birds and he doesn't charge much when he sells them.

 

I REALLY want a chicken that lays DARK eggs like a Welsummer or Maran.  It'll have to wait until next year though :(   Pink eggs would be nice too....what breed lays the pinkish eggs or is it just a light brown?

 

 

 

Hi Country Chick!  I'm not too far from Gibsonia.  Welcome!

 

 

 

 


 

 


Hello Hannakat! Thank you.

  

I also want some chickens that lay pinkish eggs.  I have 3 Pendenscena hens, they lay a dark color egg. I love the color!!
