This auction is for 6 with extras (if the girls cooperate) cuckoo marans eggs. They are clean legged. These birds came from hatcheries, but have decently dark eggs. For more info and pics see my site at http://sherryscrazymenagerie.blogspot.com/2011/01/cuckoo-marans-flock.html I pack the eggs in bubble wrap and an egg carton surrounded by lots of packing materials. They ship priority USPS. Here on the farm I am having 90-100% hatch rate on these! Of course, I cannot guarantee hatch results on shipped eggs. Thanks and happy hatching!
