    Ok. I have three blue hens and one blue rooster. I was told they were all Marans but the rooster most likely is not due to the white lobs and other things. The hens are most likely Marans or a Marans cross. They lay brown eggs, but not dark dark eggs like Marnas. They are darker than a normal brown egg though.

    I am not sure how to list them.

    should I put Blue Marans Cross hatching eggs? Blue hatching chicks. I am not sure.

    Any advice. This is a picture of the roo and one of the hens.

    I am in Debary. I go to the Pierson swap. Sometimes Osteen, but Pierson is the best swap in the County.

    I have 8 or so of these chicks hatching right now!!!! I can not wait to see them.

    Mixed or cross is good. I really don't think it matters. If people don't want to buy them after seeing (the beautiful!) pictures of the birds, they don't have to. [​IMG]

    They look like a Minorca/Andalusion cross. They are great looking birds.

    Quote:Are you going to the Pierson swap this saturday? I'm thinking of taking a bunch of EE roos and my little Salmon Favorelle group.

    Would love to know who you are to say Howdy

    I am not sure. I have 5 silkie roosters to sell and some babies that just hatched. I am not sure if I want to go up there for 5 roos and 20 chicks. I usually sell out of chicks within 30 minutes, due to what I hatch.
