    Hi, I'm Mary.[​IMG]

    Like my title says, I've been reading this forum for years, ever since I thought about getting some chickens a few years back. I can Google anything about chickens and it leads me right back here, so I figure I might as well join in now that I actually have a few chickens.

    I just hatched out my first two chicks from an incubator and have one that is unzipping as I type. They are from a Blue Copper Marans rooster (or so I was told, I'm really not sure but he has feathered legs and is beautiful) and a Black Jersey Giant hen.

    They are the cutest little things! I'm in love, love, LOVE!

    I also have 4 cuckoo marans, one of them a rooster. 2 light brahmas, 1 pullet and 1 iffy, but I'm pretty sure he is a roo.

    Then there are the weird trio I have that consists of the rooster I mentioned before, Blue Copper Marans, and 2 Jersey Giants, 1 blue and 1 black.

    So that's me...now I'm off to read that thread that lead me here today on wheaten and blue marans discussion.

    Thanks for the welcomes everyone, it's nice to be able to join in on topics.

    @drumstick diva, thanks, I had it made a few years back to try and stay anonymous on the forums I was active in at that time. That was before Pinterest, Facebook, and all that made it impossible, but I'm still trying.

    Great group of people and wonderful information. I joined for the same reason - everytime I'd look for information, I'd wind up right back here. Figured, I might as well take part as just read. Especially once I started having questions......And, being of gregarious genetic disposition ...well...I'd fall over dead if I couldn't ramble.
