    Okay, I love Marans, BUT this is a little much. I just saw a trio of black copper marans that lay 7 to 8 on egg scale for $350 bucks. To me that is ridiculous. They had better lay Godiva chocolate eggs for that...................... [​IMG]

    Seems a tad bit on the steep side.
    We order a lot of seed from Willhite. Is that close to you?

    Sadly I agree as much guff as I will get for saying it. But at least they are getting live chickens and not the just eggs...
    I'm embarrassed to admit we have sold trios of Golden Phoenix for upwords of $600... but times are tight and birds are not as wanted as they once where everyone likes the eggs and doing the hatching themselves and I do admit I love to do that too LOL

    Last time I placed an order they said that seed sales were up over 900% vs last year. Luckily we got all we ordered except for the Zipper Cream Peas. They are no where to be found anywhere...
