    Hello,
    I have some cuckoo marans hatching eggs. Before you go all crazy hear me out. The hens I have are from the hatchery. They lay MUCH lighter eggs than they should, the one is decent but nothing to go crazy over.

    Right now I have up for grabs 5 cuckoos and 2 sizzles. I just walked in from collecting. I would put them in my bators but they are all full. I offered them to crazychickengirl and her bators are full as well. So I will put them up for sale. $15.00 shipped.

    How light are the maran eggs? darker than a regular brown egg at least?

    and what is a sizzle?

    thanks

    If you want a pic of the adults I can go get one.

    A sizzle is a cross between a frizzled and a silkie.
    Here are the definitions
    A Frizzle is a regularly (hard) feathered bird with curled feathers.
    A Frazzle (Curly) is a double Frizzled bird (has skin and feather problems, bald spots, brittle feathers, etc)
    A Sizzle is a Silkie with regular (hard) feathers that are curled.
    And a Frizzled Silkie is a Silkie with curly silkie feathering.

    BRB with the egg pics
    These are the eggs that are waiting to be shipped. 2 of them are just regular brown the other 3 are darker than a regular brown egg. The 2 little ones are the sizzles. [​IMG]

    Hi Harley's girl,

    I went to your site and saw your Husband's portable pens. Cool idea. [​IMG]

    I am interested in just the gates. Is that doable? What would be the price?

    Thank you,

    Those should be really interesting to hatch!

    This should work out well. I put guinea eggs in the bator last friday night!

    Thanks Harley's Girl![​IMG]
