    I found some black marans eggs on eggbid. They are $15 plus shipping so far. Does anyone know the seller blackcopper(23). Her feedbacks look good. I am new to marans and have several people helping me but most are this spring. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Polly

    I got my mottled java eggs from him....I got 8 eggs and 6 hatched so I'd say I had a very good hatch. Very nice person to deal with. I'd give him a big [​IMG]
     
  3. I bought a mixed lot of Marans eggs from Lee and Ginny (BlackCopper) and they are due to arrive today. I can post egg photos if you want.

    I had thought about bidding on those, depending on how these turn out. [​IMG]

    I have bought eggs from them as well though not Black marans. It will depend on what you buy as to the depth of color. I saw them when I picked mine up but I don't recall how dark the black marans eggs were. I do know that they are VERY nice people.
     
  5. They sent me a TON of extras. I won 12 eggs on eggbid, and they sent 20! The black marans are the darkest of what I got.

    This message is for:

    Katy. BeardedChic, and (Robin) Pumpkinup !!

    I was just looking around on the BYCF and ran across all of the nice
    things you all said about Ginny & myself. I was very supprised &
    shocked. Not that it isn't true or anything, I am just greatfully
    appreciative of the kindness. As I have told many chicken people
    that have come over to by chicks and eggs........An observation
    that I have made many a time..................I have found that all chicken people are the same, they are caring, especially about when it comes to their chickens, and not STUFFY at all. There always wanting to learn more about chickens, and I am always
    wanting to share any and all of my knowledge with them.

    And a special thanks to Robin, Pumpkinup for the forever remembered Computer Tips on the pictures.
    Talk to you soon !

    Hi Lee, saw your assorted eggs auction just now and saw you had blue cuckoos. Are they by any chance feather legged? Someone I know hatched some and can't remember who sent the feather legged blue cuckoos eggs to her...
