Wow Bruce, that's a bummer about your meaties. One of the BYC breeders is taking some Marans to auction this Sunday, she's pretty far North in PA, the auction is in Unidilla, NY. It's over 4 hrs from me... Wish i could go, I've only got 2 BCMs and they've JUST started laying? MsLadyHawk: Indeed she did leave me a few 'presents' placed strategically throughout the first floor -so that I wouldn't find them all at once. She also scratched around on top of the puzzle table and undid quite a bit of 1000 piece puzzle. So now you all know, yes, I do puzzles. Turns out, I am my mother. .
