    This is for 6+ of each depending on the girls.

    I have a Blue Birchen Marans Rooster over Blue, Blue Splash and Black Copper Marans. Thus the Chocolate chip [​IMG]

    If you want beautiful DARK eggs you have come to the right place. I think the birds are beautiful too [​IMG]

    And for the MINT ~ That same rooster is covering Lavender Ameraucanas and Split Lav. Ameraucanas. The offspring from these eggs should lay a nice green olive colored egg.

    I hatched all of these birds here last spring from eggs I got from fellow BYCers (thank you all).

    Fertility has been great.

    We all know the risks associated with buying shipped eggs. I will do my very best and pack them well to protect them from any bumpy rides they may travel.

    They will each be wrapped and the box packed well.

    I will post pictures of the birds as soon as weather conditions allow. Thank you for looking!

    (Disclaimer here to the serious Marans breeders - Bev Davis tells me that my roo is a Blue Marans who is carrying both a silver and a gold gene. Bred with the BCM he should throw Black and Blue Copper Marans. Over the Blue & Splash he should throw Blue/Splash and Blue/Splash birchen, maybe even a Blue Copper.) I will be breeding and culling in the coming years to get to straight Blue Birchen) Bev if you see this feel free to correct anything I may have misenterpreted. Thank you!

    I have a couple pics of the roo and the Blue & Splash girls from last fall. They have all matured and filled out since then.

    These are just to hold you over [​IMG]

    My Marans aren't laying for beans right now, so I'm dark egg jealous! Good looking eggs Aces!

    Nice!!! Especially like the roo!!! Oh forget I love them all:) I must sell at least 20 pullets before I can buy any more eggs or they'll be running in the streets and that's not a good idea!!! Come and see me and bring that rooster with you!
