    Nope each rooster has his own cage and she puts the hens in with them over night. But the hens are all out together and unless they lay the egg in the cage she has no clue who is who. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the pic of the eggs; very nice!
    Are your girls from this hatch laying yet? what are their eggs like?

    I have one, and only one, Cuckoo Marans that I was able to hatch, along w/FOUR roosters, last fall. She just laid her first egg 2 days ago, & 2 more since. I am very impressed w/the color -- I now definitely see the difference in a hatchery Marans (have one, very good layer of large dk brown eggs-but-not "that" dark!) & a 'quality breeder' Marans.

    I have one from an earlier hatch that is now laying. [​IMG] It is a nice color. I would say 4-5 on the scale. She is a good layer too.
