Hello there everyone, im Beth. I live in michigan. I have owned a small flock of chickens most of my life now. I have a mixed flock, a few Aracaunas 2 barred rocks and a golden laced wyandotte. Last week I purchased 2 Blue copper Maran hens and a Splash rooster to add to my coop. I am looking to learn more about the French copper marans and hatching some eggs. I have a barred rock setting on a nest of 5 black and 3 blue/splash maran eggs which were started saturday august 24th and a cross egg which I'm not sure when she started it.
