    NEW French Silver Cuckoo Flock !
    I have culled hard to get these birds, and the effort has shown.
    Up for sale is 1 doz French silver Cuckoo hatching eggs.


    This is from a flock attained in the Santa Rosa valley area of California,in 1997..............
    I ship Priority, all shipments are secured in bubble wrap & double boxed.
    I advise you pick up your box at your post office to save the eggs even more shipping trauma.
    Your phone # needs to be added to the box so they can call you for pick up.
    I have 1 perfect cock over each group of 5 hens.
    So far, Fertility is 100%.
    The chicks pop out easily, as always.
    Chicks can be sexed as day olds, due to their variations in plumage color.
    Shipping, is extra and $13.45 which includes a tracking # and $50 worth of insurance, for 1 doz eggs.

    I do include extras as I have them, in case of breakage by the postal service.
    I cannot guaranty your box will arrive safe, nor guaranty your hatch, as it is far out of my control.
    Eggs seen above
    Love these birds, docile, intelligent, and prolific ! Occasional broodiness, when they do it is rare, and the hens are fantastic Mothers, and the cocks are protective fathers.
    Occasionally we have had a white chick hatch out, which is so super awesome, next year we may have a very nice coop of white Marans !

    I cannot find any "imposter" cuckoo marans hens.......................they all look pure...[​IMG] so, what we are getting is a pure white sport from this line.
    About 2 in 12 are hatching out pure white.
