I have 8 at present at various stags of incubation. 2 are due to hatch tomorrow. Looks like I have a 9th one and yes,of'course it's a marans(mixed)hen. Move over silkies and cochins. My marans are giving you a run for your money on broodiness!5 of the 8 are marans or marans mix, 1 is a bantam and 2 are white leghorns.
