    Well I put all the eggs in and started my hatching. I have a total of 60 right now. I got the Marans from SandS poultry. They live near me and Their eggs look a lot darker in person. I also got speckled sussex, Real RIR's and Buff Orpingtons from them. These people have some really nice birds. Steve and Sharon took me around there place and boy am I glad I don't have their feed bill.
    They are nice people and their birds are nice as well. Their Buff Orpingtons are huge. Their Cuckoo Marans are nice looking and they have some Black Copper Marans coming along also.
    People if you want turkey eggs they have them also. I am going to get some in April of this year. Get some eggs from SandS poultry and you won't go wrong. I'll let you know how the hatch goes. I have all the eggs seperated and written down and pictures. Later, Dave27889


    Thanks, Steve and Sharon you are nice people and I enjoyed the tour.
