    I would like to raise Heritage breed laying hens, to conserve the breed and to upgrade my flock. I am considering the following breeds. Please let me know if you know where to buy these breeds. I would like chicks or laying hens, but hatching eggs would be OK too.

    I am interested in the following breeds.

    Barred Rocks
    Buff Orpingtons
    New Hampshire Reds
    Rhode Island Reds
    Silver Laced Wyandottes
    Golden Laced Wyandottes
    Brown Leghorns
    Araucanas
    Ameraucanas
    Delawares
    Dominiques
    French Marans
    Cuckoo Marans
    Welsummers
    Barnevelders

    I would REALLY like to know where to buy these breeds. I am trying to start a good egg production flock and I intend to breed as well so I can improve my flock and maintain breed standards. Thanks.

    Quote:Hatching eggs on Ebay are rarely from good-quality stock.


    Do a search on here in the "Breeds, Genetics, and Showing" and "Hatching Eggs" forums and you will probably find most, if not all, of the breeds you have listed.

    I have Black Copper Marans, Blue Marans, Splash Marans available and take orders for chicks. Late this fall probably next spring I will have Blue copper marans and Birchen Maran, plus working on a project of Marans that I bought from a breeder as a starter.
    If interested you can PM me or Email me from my page here. I may have some extra chicks from the upcoming 9.26 hatch of Black Coppers. All chicks shipped will be French Marans on the Black Copper.
