    Thank you for accepting me to the group. We've had chickens for 5 years but stayed out with very little knowledge. Three years ago we had over 300 chickens because we were just so excited about all the different breeds. We had no idea there were so many beautiful chickens. We had to decide what breeds we wanted to keep them downsize. We've narrowed it down to Marans and Ameraucanas then breeding some select birds, from those two breeds, to create beautiful EE and OE. I have a question about Blue Wheaten Marans. What will I get if I cross a Blue Wheaton roo with Blue hens? I have no Wheaten hens but would love to get some. Who is a reputable Wheaten Marans breeder?
    Thanks for all the help.

    I'm not really up on genetics so maybe your best bet for finding an answer to your breeding question would be here:

    You might enjoy chatting with others in your state. Just put your state name in the search box and the state thread should come up with the results.

    Good luck finding the Wheaten Marans you're looking for!

    Nice to meet you Kathy. You may want to post on the Marans thread and also your state thread to discover what is out there. Hope you will be successful.
