    Has anyone ordered Marans from Backwoods Country? I'm having a moment of insanity, but before I send money I thought I would check here to see if it's worth it. I like that they are near me so the eggs won't have to travel far.

    Let me know what you think. I'm new to Marans and still not good at judging quality.

    I give Backwoods two thumbs up. I believe the guy is Buddy Henry and he'll treat you right.

    $60 for a dozen...which is the best price on Marans eggs I've seen...not that I'm bargain hunting.

    Awesome! That's what I needed to hear. I just put my order in, so I'm officially insane. You all are the only one's who would understand spending $60 for eggs. haha. [​IMG]

    You wont be sorry. I do Buddys fertility tests on his wheatons and bcs. and I live five miles from him. I go to his farm all the time and his stock is gorgeous and he keeps them extremely clean. His wheatons are the prettiest I have ever seen and doing his fertility I can tell you they are fertile. Out of all the times I have hatched for him only had a few that werent and the loses I had were quitters which is not a fertility problem. One of the nicest and most informative breeders I know and will help you and answer any questions you have just a all in all great guy and a great family to deal with. He is in partnership with Ron Presley.
