I was given these beautiful French black copper marans today but don’t have all flock! They will be quarantined for about two weeks they look great so far no live mites or such are vaccinated for mareks, i only have scratch mealworms and layer pellets plus other grains, will layer pellets harm...
Was given these beautiful maroons today, so they are brothers have been together one 4 months,one 3, they are both very docile, they don’t fight with one another. Question: I have 20 chickens would that be enough for me to intergrate with less to no problems?
legs look pinkish pale in the pic, a lot of motion still pic would be better looks like a hatchery silver cuckoo marans or at least a cross, if the legs have a slight yellowish color it’s a cross of something barred with single comb
Took mine 32 weeks to start laying, squatted for about 2 weeks before, like I would just walk up to them and they were already squatting type squat, should be soon good luck, the anticipation is the worst but once they lay its well worth the wait!! :thumbsup
