    i am interested in buying hatching eggs or chicks that are chocolate brown layers...i would prefer to pick them up rather than have them shipped..
    i am in the sandusky ohio area and i would travel prolly not more than 2hrs in a radius, however, i could travel to the end of the earth for black copper marans...depends on what kind of deal you have to offer..
    Thanks for any responses!!

    I just hatched some BC, I would sell those if you would want to come and pick them up. I had 6 BC eggs under the hen and all 6 hatched, 4 black and 2 yellow, so Im assuming that the hen is from Wade Jean lines cause his line will throw wheaton chicks. I dont know for sure cause I dont know where this hen is from line wise. I got her at a sale. I want to keep the yollow chicks cause I had some wheaton eggs under the same hen and now that 2 hatched yellow from the BC eggs, I cant tell my wheatons from the other 2 yellow. My zip is 47371, Im almost 10 miles from in town Portland, but only 3 miles from the OH line.

    These 4 chicks hatched on June 8th and I have 1 chick that is 2, maybe 3 weeks old, this chick is from my BC from Bevs line. You can pm me if you are interested, or I can to give you a price on them............

    BC means Black Copper - speaking of the marans breed. They are supposed to lay the darkest eggs of any breed (only this certain color). But that ALL depends on how good their lineage is [​IMG]
