    I am planning on setting back up a pen of laying hens for selling eating eggs again next spring and these are two breeds from Ideal that I am considering and if anyone has these two breeds from Ideal, I would really love to see pictures of the birds and the eggs please.

    And BTW with the Marans, I know to expect hatchery quality.


    Thanks

    Quote:All 5 of mine are clean legged, yes that is the normal color of their eggs the flash washed that one out a little bit in color though , Their okay layers, but mine have a thing for going broody and when they finally give up (or raise chicks) go strait into a molt.

    These 2 are my GSLs from Ideal, hatched March of 99' They are SUPER layers, fairly-friendly & I like them much more than the BSLs I ordered from Ideal (BSL aren't as friendly & don't lay as well).
