I've had people drive over 2 hours each way to get BCM chicks, and last weekend someone from Rhode Island called me but decided 4+ hours each way was too much. Honestly, I like Marans less and less the longer I have them, but lots of people want to try them. I like Welsummers more, but even our Welsummers are aggravating in their poor egg production and general lack of vigor compared to the other breeds. I'm planning to hatch and sell more hybrids next year. The majority of the people that want chicks care less about purity and pedigree than having a hardy and good producer of colorful eggs. I'm counting on my new Welbars and Black Sexlinks to make up most of the chicks that I sell.
