Anyone who has extra marans eggs in the spring could easily convince me to come and get some. I love that dark egg color. I have LF cochin eggs in the bator, but I just candled them and its not looking to promising. USPS strikes again. I also need a new candler. I think I have my boss convinced to make me one. I have brahma eggs coming the end of october. People think I am crazy, but when you are only getting 2-3 chicks a hatch the numbers don't add up. I can't wait until I have my own eggs!! With all the chicken math going on here, we could single handedly supply every person in PA with a chicken.
