This is my first post, but I'm a long-time lurker. I keep Orpingtons, Lavender and Buff, Black Copper Marans-feathered legs, Silver and gold laced Wyandottes, White Plymouth Rocks and various mutts. Currently, we are incubating Crested Cream Legbars and Swedish Flower eggs. We hope to add white Jersey Giant also this year, and then take rest. I love my birds and spend a great deal of time out in the runs with them, visiting and keeping the grounds very clean. I am interested in improving my Marans with a rooster from out of my locale. I really appreciate this forum for all that I've been able to learn here, so thanks to all.
