    Shipping out on Tuesday morning 12+ (definitely plus!) blk C and Blue C Marans eggs. These birds are about 2 years old, fertility has been great and I get about half blue coppers. They are fed as close to organic as I can get, are fed whole grains and their large tractors are moved every week to new grass and ground. Temperament is wonderful, I handle the blue roo every day since he is spoiled and expects to be placed on the roosting pole every night. Most of the birds are from Whitmore Farms bloodlines but there are other bloodlines in there, too.
    I do breed for less copper on the back and hackles of my birds. They have some but very little compared to others.
