    My hen is officially gone broody. We, however, have no rooster.

    I'm not sure how (or if I want) to break her, so I'm looking at getting some fertilized eggs for her to hatch.

    Any BYC-ers on here from Maine that might have or know of some eggs I can get for her to hatch? (Just taking a shot here! [​IMG])

    You need to post in the WTB (Wanted To Buy) section. That way, the sellers will see it.

    PM a moderator and ask them to move this thread there.

    Congrats on the broody! [​IMG]

    yep, but they would be mixed. I have a blue wheaten ameraucana roo over cuckoo marans & black, splash, wheaten and blue wheaten ameraucana and some lighter brown egg laying hens. There is a chance to get pure ameraucana as there are 3 of the same color as him....interested? I am in Windham

    Anyway - very interested!! Please let me know how many you would be willing to part with & how much. I'm coastal - up near Rockland/Damariscotta - but would have no problem driving south.

    Looking forward to a little variety - and our household welcomes mutts!!
