Hope this is in the right section. Soo.. I'm purchasing some French Maran chickens this week and hopefully breed for chicks and hatching eggs to sell. My goal is not only to raise my own flock, but to help off set some cost from my chicken "addiction" and feed cost. We lost a lot of chicks and young birds last year, so we are basically starting over again. Trying a new angle by starting with some adult birds. I personally think Marans are beautiful birds!! I especially love the blues and splashes!! Anyway, I have the choice of from Blue Copper, Black Copper and Splashes. My question is which color should I go with or which color is more desired for resale? (make more money) Should I stick with one color or just go with a mix? Do people want mixed colors of chicks/ hatching eggs or just one color? ( I know blue + blue= 25/50/25 which I am taking into consideration) And yes, I know I should raise whatever I am happy raising, so that isn't really my question. Price is the same. Doesn't matter to me what color.(I love my red sexlink hen, and she doesn't hold a candle to these beauties!) Just needing some advice from an established seller I guess. I will be purchasing 6 hens and 1 roo. I think I will start with 3 hens in with my Amerucana Roo for F1 olive eggers.. and the remaining 3 with the Maran roo. Any helpful advice is appreciated!
