Soo, why so many different chickens??? Not really, but someone semi local has 10 2-3 yr old hens & 5 roo's for sale. She says not hatchery stock & some direct Bev Davis lines. I really like the dark eggs of the Marans. She's asking $50 for a trio; says they are breeder quality. Anyone want to talk me out of making a 2 hr weekend road trip? Just learning about the cuckoo marans.
