    Hi Zatsdeb,

    I am from Greenview, Illinois. I am thinking about starting a website for chicken owners/hobbyist from Illinois. That way we can buy, sell, and swap items or poultry.

    I have been hatching out Marans eggs in my incubators. I am buying the eggs on eBay. I am sure that I will have more chicks than I can deal with. Since they are Marans, I hate to eat all the extras. But I will if I have to. If you are interested please send me an email.

    My mom was born in Mishawaka, IL and my paternal grandmother was from St. Louis, IL. Does that count?

    Well, I don't know where it is really, but my DH was born in Elgin and raised in Streamwood. Is that central??? I've never been there, but he misses it. Steph
