Gearing up to add a few to our flock. Does anyone know where I can get French Copper Marans and/or Welsummers hatching eggs? I'd also like an EE hatching egg or 2.
The new Tractor Supply opened in New Windsor. Hopefully they'll be getting some chicks although I think if they will have them, they'll mainly have red sex-links as they don't usually carry a wide variety of breeds...that's IF they have them at all. Not sure if NW is a chicken friendly zone. I've had chickens for a few years and nobody has bothered me about them but I have a couple of acres and no roosters to disturb the peace!
Regards to all~
I will have autosexing and/or sexlinked (depending on the hens I use) easter "leggers" eggs available this spring. I use my cream crested legbar rooster and a variety of hens and the cream crested legbar hens and a few different roosters. It is my understanding that the blue egg gene is dominant in them and so the resulting chicks always lay a colored egg (blue/green/olive). So, unlike easter eggers which sometimes lay white or brown and are nearly impossible to sex until they grow up, these chicks are much easier to sex and, in my experience, always lay a colored egg.
