After having a small flock of hens years ago, I recently decided to get back into the game. Thanks to the wonders of the internet, I stumbled across this group---fantastic information! Currently have 18 standard blue cochins in our homemade incubator, due to hatch May 10th. Next week, have 2 cuckoo marans, 2 easter eggers, 1 blue andalusian & 1 black orp coming from Meyer hatchery. We live on our little 10 acres of heaven in central Louisiana along w/3 dogs & 3 cats.
