[SIZE=5][COLOR=#66cc00]We are breeding our Coronation rooster 'T-REX' from Paul Bradshaw to 6 Light Sussex hens also from Bradshaw bloodlines. Europe is fanatical about the Sussex breed and the competition is fierce! Bradshaw imported Champion stock from Australia. So these birds are the best of the best!! This is an excellent opportunity to obtain these beautiful birds.
ANY LIGHT SUSSEX BRED WITH A CORONATION CONTAINS THE LAVENDER RECESSIVE GENE. THESE BIRDS WILL PRODUCE CORONATIONS.

Our French Black Copper Marans Roos & Hens have heavily feathered legs & toes. Most of the chicks hatching are show quality. The parents have been checked for tight wing feathers, comb formation & French standard. Rich copper color with out too much copper on the chest. A great book to read is STOREY'S GUIDE TO RAISING CHICKENS. It is very comprehensive. It covers it all!
Our hens are in their first year of laying and have produced very fertile healthy eggs. All of our chickens eat the best of the best indulging in organic fruits & veggies along with a base diet of high quality corn feed. Our hens are strong layers and our chicks are very healthy because of this.
They come from the Wade Jean, Bev Davis & show stock bloodlines. I purchased the darkest eggs on Ebay. They lay their eggs to the natural light cycle. The first eggs produced were a really nice dark chocolate brown color, ranging 7-9 on the Marans Scale. Everybody should know that Marans eggs lighten up as the laying season progresses. Our hens have been laying an egg a day since January 15th. Eggs are collected & turned several times a day at a temperature ranging from 50-65 degrees. I will only send the freshest and darkest eggs. An egg can be candled to check for freshness. A small air sack is a fresh egg. A large air sack is an OLD egg! That's why old eggs float. Be sure to check them. We DO NOT wash our eggs, it destroys the natural bloom from the hen. Eggs hatch fine with a little debris on them. All eggs are packaged with lots of care and love.
My hatching rate has been 90-95%. While I cannot guarantee hatch rates due to many factors like extreme shipping weather, shipping xrays, rough handling and the incubation process. I can guarantee that I will do my best to secure the eggs during shipping for the best hatching rate possible. To have the best hatch rate possible, allow your eggs to settle and warm up to room temperature before incubating, very important!!
Get yourself a temperature/humidity thermometer and keep the temp at 100 degrees & the humidity between 40% - 65%. At hatch time keep the humidity at 65%. This is what works at an elevation over 6,000 feet. I have learned that this is not so easy with temp changes inside & out. Egg turners are the best, but if you don't have one, turn them manually 4 times per day. Give them lots of love for a better hatch!
