Hello all Indiana Chicken People. I have been on here for almost a year but just found this forum. Ive been on a couple of the others.
Im from nothern Indiana in Goshen and have a couple chickens Im trying to find.
My flock consists of the following:
2 Black copper marans (pair) love my rooster, only mature i have, pic below
8 young Blue laces Red Wyandottes not yet laying and unfortunately all splash (2 pullets and 3-4 cockerels for trade or sale)
3 blue eggers, not sure if true americana but one looks the part
1 bared rock
3 isa browns
1 Tolbunt polish (after this weeks Elkhart Co fair ends)
and a couple young ones that were to be blue coppers and one olive egger pullets but they all SEEM to be roos, not cool.
anyway, here is what Im looking for:
Black (or maybe Blue) copper maran hens/pullets
Black/dark Blue laced Red Wyandotte cockrel (maybe roo) to balance my 2 splash hens
If anyone has any of these and is relativley close by, let me know
Here's "Big Guy"
welcome and glad to meet you!
Love your handsome roo You have an interesting flock, and hope you find the additions you are looking for.
Thanks, and yeah, interesting mix, part of my problem is I keep getting roos. It is making it hard to get going and costing more money than it should. I have only been at it since last Sept. I wanted to get some eggs going quick so got some Isas, great layers. Then the marans and others. Im not really into the breeding as much YET so i wanted a variety of egg colors...plus when the kids get to pick one or two in all goes nuts. :)
anyway, thanks for the welcome. I need to move (or take for a ride to the butcher) some of the roos and figure out what gender a couple others are for sure then fill in with some good laying hens as we move into fall.
