    I just ordered two Black Copper Maran pullets and am UBER excited. I can't wait til the new babies get here. She said they are about 7 weeks old. I don't think there will be a problem with them being sick as she is a reputable breeder. EEEEEE, did I mention I am excited?
    I am thinking about getting an incubator and trying my hand at hatching eggs.

    I got one by mistake this spring, man that chicken can lay! She lays the most beautiful chocolate egg, and everyday with just an occasional miss of a day. She is right up there with my rhode island reds, a huge egg and it's a beauty!
    I'm going to see if I can find some of these eggs this spring to set under my girls as I have fallen in love withe breed, oh and the pretty eggs. She is the smartest and most inquisitive of
    all my hens. If you can please post pictures!

    I am getting some BCM eggs on Thursday, just setting up the incubator now. This is my first time incubating eggs as well, but I just had a horrible chick mailing experience and I just feel better about only shipping eggs....
