Sorry for butting in but I have to promote the first poultry show including marans (eggs and chickens) EVER, for Nevada, coming up on the 19th in Reno, NV. For anyone local or for anyone who wants to ship eggs for the egg contest here's the info...
Peter Ovalle just sent me this email regarding the egg show.
Hello, Im happy to announce the first ever MCC USA sponsored egg show in Nevada! The Northern Nevada Poultry Fanciers Association (NNPFA) has agreed to allow for the egg show at their annual show.

I know this is short notice but if we can get a couple more folks to submit entries that would be awesome! Nevadans need to be exposed to this beautiful breed!
