    I have feather shank and clean shank. I think I have contacted everyone on my list,so if you haven't locked in a ship date,now is the time. It looks like the first openings I have are the second week of March. The girls have begun laying,so I expect them to be going strong by then. You can check out details on my page. Right now,all I have available are the marans. I had to change the price because priority shipping is going up. The price is now $30/doz on the marans,but I will take $5 off if 2 doz are ordered.Price includes shipping.

    My girls from Gina lay the darkest eggs out of all the Marans I have. Thanks for the wonderful eggs and I'll be ready for some in a few weeks if you'll still have some. Thanks again Dennis

    Thanks Dennis! I have 2 new hens laying and their eggs are even darker. I have several 3 month old pullets that will probably miss this season but will be ready by next year.

    The eggs I got from Gina last year were beautiful. They were huge! She does a great job packaging them too.

    I m fairly new to marans and had the unfortunate luck of having a coon attack 2 years ago,so my flock is kind of young. The oldest hens I have are 4 years old. I've been raising them for about 5 years. They are pretty solid layers,but I noticed this past Winter they took a longer break than they have in previous years.
    Thanks shortcake! I only ended up with 2 of your Delaware hens. I kept 2 roosters but lost both of them. They were stubborn boys and would not go up at night and by the time noticed,it was too late. I hope to get more this year. They lay really nice,large eggs.

    Thanks Gina, maybe we can trade again when it gets warmer. Sorry to hear your roos didn't make it. I wish I'd known I just sent 16 to camp.
