Can you believe it? I've watched many egg auctions but haven't taken the plunge yet. Today we saw some roosters listed. Called and they had a few roosters for sale for $10 each. Well we figured we'd ask if he had any hens, pullets, eggs or chicks. Anything. Well he said he just had roosters. So we figured we'd pick one up and put him on our RIR/layers and just hatch off some darker ones to add back to our layer flock. (I like the assorted colors for my cartons. ) Anyway, we got out there and he had 6 birds, 3 pullets and 3 roosters. 3.5 months old. So as we're talking my hubby asks if he'd be willing to part with a pullet. He said the only way he'd sell a pullet is if someone bought the whole group of 6. So you can guess where this goes. Yes we bought all 6. So now I have 3 pullets and 3 rooster Cuckoo Marans. I can't believe how lucky we are!!! I can't wait to see their eggs. He said they were very very dark eggs and really big at that. So I can't wait to see. I am beside myself! Here's pictures of our newbies... Its going to be one LONG wait to see their first eggs!!!
