    Hi, I just finished hatching some cuckoo marans at work, I work at a nursing hime, The residents LOVED it. But they would like to see some yellow chicks. If anyone has any eggs they would be willing to sell fairly cheap I would love to buy some. All I have are dark birds, so all dark chicks. They dont have to be pure bread or anything, just come out yellow.......lol

    I have some RIR/EE eggs. My EE roo is white, so about 1/2 the chicks from these eggs come out yellow. Others are peach or striped.

    OH those sound fun! How much do you charge for an assortment? Do you know if I can let the residents sell them after they hatch, to make money for thier activity fund?

    I don't see why you couldn't let the residents sell them to make a little money. I can send you 12+ for $20 shipped if you want. I also have some Silkie eggs if you're interested in those...the catch is that my BBS pen and my white pen haven't been separated that long, plus one of my Polish roos got into my white Silkie pen the other day, so there's a possibility those could be mixed. If you're still interested I could send a dozen of those for $25 shipped. I'll combine the shipping if you want both.
