    ... Of getting an egg before the spring.

    Bur Marjorie did the business yesterday!
    She made a lovely little nest in the nest box where it should be, and made me the MOST PERFECT little egg!!!!

    that is gorgeous - what breeder did you get that (marans?) from? It's such a matte brown, I haven't seen one quite like it before...

    Quote:Hey [​IMG]

    I got her from a chap called Richard Baudains who lives just up the road from me.
    Although he did manage to supply me with 6 different breeds in 6 birds, they were poorly, unhandled and a lot younger than he said they were. [​IMG] So I obviously won't be getting any more from him!

    But none of it matters any more since Marjorie Marans did her thing [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Beautiful! Rather have a bird younger, rather than older than you think. That way, she will have the rest of her life with you.. Congratulations! I'd love to have some of those chocolate looking eggs in my basket. Have a marvelous Thanksgiving. Lynn
