    I got these Marans from peachick about 8 weeks ago they have grown like weeds and are very friendly. I took some pictures tonight they are not good because it was dark but I will post them and try and get better ones later. I have 3 pullets and 3 cockerals 1 blue pullet and 2 black and 1 dark blue 1 light blue and 1 black cockeral. I am trading the cockerals for some Buff Orphington pullets that are about 18-20 weeks old with someone local. I cannot keep roosters at my suburban home. I regret having to let the cockerals go because they are handsome and friendly. The pullets are also the friendliest birds I have! and I can't wait to see their eggs !

    Ya I was wishing for more blue boys but the black girls already have a beautiful green sheen in their feathers. Mine will be going out soon they are crazy and adventerous little things mine are out in the shed so its almost like they are outside [​IMG] Hey mayble I could "rent" a rooster from you for a few weeks and save the eggs and let you hatch them so that you can get some of this pretty blue girls blood back into your flock [​IMG]
