Sue Osio, also known as amazondoc

In central NY.

 I have known Sue for years. Really dedicated to the Marans breed.

 Look at the stunning number 7 egg she got from one of her Black Coppers.

 Do yourself a favor and choose the Black Copper. It has always been the showcase color I the breed. Do not pick one of the unrecognized colors. They need so much work. You can have fun with the Black Copper now. See if you can get started birds. That will put you back on track to be hatching eggs with the rest of us next Spring. Always a fun time and you won't be sitting ringside watching the fun. Plus, if you get started birds, you may pay a bit more but you will see exactly what you get.  I have started with eggs, and day old chicks. Very frustrating. This time I started with started birds. Great choice. worked out great and I got just the quality I wanted. It costs just as much to feed the lesser birds than the high quality.


Sue, no longer has Marans.

anyone wanting to see pictures of the Wheaten and BC Marans  cross look on my profile page. 

 

I know very little about anything but will usually have an opinion on most everything.  DON

Well that's a stunner and a real loss to the breed, sigh.

 Thanks for the update,

Walt Boese strain and Tewart flock of Pure English  Light Sussex

My flock now resides with Farmer Karl in PA.   

  I know he will do well by them. Karl is a knowing poultry man.

RIP Hellbender, my friend. Good friend, good heart, gone too soon.
