    Breed #1 ~ Wheaten Marans
    Breed#2 ~ Blue Copper Marans
    Breed#3 ~ 100% Splash Blue Laced Red Wyandottes
    Plus for Extras I have Blue Cuckoo Marans and Olive Egg Layers. I only have one hen of each of these at this time. The OEL lays everyday so I can do more of hers and she lays Large eggs.
    Please see my web site for more pics. http://soaringhawksfarm.blogspot.com/

    Thanks, They are the only ones laying right now. My Blue Wyandottes should start laying soon and my BLRW's are only 3 months old. Along with more Olive egg layers. I'm hoping for a few more colors in the wyandottes and new blood in with the marans. I can't wait for the button quail and guineas to start laying. Then I can really mix things up. I keep waiting for something I like on the egg chain,but nothing has really come up. It's slow this time of year.
    It looks like I will be doing a min of 4 eggs of each breed listed. My cuckoo marans has gone broody so there will be no extras of them. I can't brake her of it. she is sitting on a nest with NO eggs!

    This is not pure Marans ,but she is a blue Cuckoo.

    The Pure Cuckoo is in the background. The Blue Cuckoo hen is a Olive Egg Layer.
    To get the blue cuckoo color I cross my Blue Copper on the Cuckoo hen or a Cuckoo roo over a blue hen.( I no longer have a Cuckoo roo)
    Chicks will be blue cuckoo or carry the blue gene.
    See the cuckoo and OEL page on my site for what the chicks could look like.

    Just to let you know incase you missed it the cuckoo has gone broody on me and is not laying. I do have OEL's(can do 5 or6) that will be the blue cuckoo /cuckoo colors.
    Your welcome. I tell mine the day the op calls for package pick up.LOL or after they call. To late by then!
    Oh good luck too.​
