    It's beautiful! So happy with this lovely pullet egg. The bird is 24 weeks old. I hatched her from some eBay eggs last October. So happy to have her and her brother in my flock.

    That's an exciting day too! Are you hatching them yourself or buying chicks?

    Congrats!
    I'm picking up two 16 week old marans for my sister this weekend and can't wait to see the eggs they produce when they start laying

    These are the best I have. She's usually on the move.

    Nice! I definitely understand that. I also like hatching. I've backed off for the time being as I really am maxed out on chicks right now.
