    I put an add out on craigslist looking for any chicks, hens, or roosters. We are still getting started with ours so are wanting to add more of different kinds.
    I got a reply from a lady who said she was a breeder and would give me just about any roosters and some hens depending on what she needed to breed. I was SO excited. I didn't even ask what kind! lol

    She showed up today with 8, two-three week old pure French Cuckoo Maran chicks!

    I'll soon be getting a Frizzle from her and many more different ones. She has true Arucanas as well.
    I can't wait!

    So lucky that she found my add and I have awesome quality chicks coming my way!

    (Also got a reply from a guy giving me 3, three month old Buff Orp roosters tomorrow)

    Here's my new babies! [​IMG]
