    I just ordered a dozen Blue Splash Maran hatching eggs from Gabbard Farms. They are just gorgeous....OK I am a blue chicken fan. Hopefully getting a Blue Orpington chick at the end of the month along with a BCM chick.

    I have never incubated and hatched chicks before. Anyone have any idea what hatching percentage is likely? I have heard nothing but awesome things about Julie and Gabbard farms and her chickens are fantastic....I can't believe they are so beautiful!

    We are so excited!!!!!

    Shipped eggs run about 50%.

    When do you get them?
