Soo glad winter is over and my hens are laying and the roosters are firtlizing them!!! So far I've hatched 3 CuckCoo Marans and almost one Wyndotte. I've found out that the best laying hens have got to be the CuckCoo Marans. I've had mine for 4 years and when I got them they were 2 so they're 6 and they still lay at least 2 Dozen eggs a week!!
