    I'm looking to find a breeder of dark egg layers like Welsummers or Marans....

    I don't want eggs right NOW, but in a few months I'd really like 6-12 eggs to hatch along with other eggs I'm wanting to buy.

    Anyone know a breeder or are you a breeder?

    Thanks

    I'm getting Welsummer eggs from MotherGoose and Marans eggs from Ginasmarans. I've heard really good things about both of them ( and their eggs )

    Get your Welsummer eggs from Christie Ritter, mothergoose. Nice, very dark eggs and pretty birds. Here is her website address http://www.freewebs.com/ritterlivestock/

    Rinks has Marans, but I've only gotten Speckled Sussex from her. She packs well.

    Thank you guys so much - I'm hoping to get a co-ordinated shipping of Arucana's from Jody and then a dark egg layer - so I can pop em all in my bator at the same time [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, I got a bator! [​IMG]

    The marans breeder of america has a yahoo group which is very informative. There are a few people on that group that have worldclass marans... Here's the yahoo group address. Subscribe: [email protected] I believe they also have a website... not positive.

    I have a nice pair of everyday cuckoo marans. My "Maren" lays what I think is a nice brown egg and she lays almost every day. My roo is a perfect match for Maren. The darkest eggs are hers.

    They are under a year old, and sit and talk to each other. lol
    The cost would be shipping--if someone might have advice on best ways to pack.

    The Khaki eggs are from my golden americana. They are pretty too.
    I like the variety of colors. When I give eggs away people are thrilled to see the variety of colors in the carton.
