    I was saving this spot for some Marans eggs, but that shipment was cancelled, so I set 18 eggs from my chickens today!

    [​IMG] To that egg-man, I got my own! And mine are blue, so ha-ha!

    Can you tell I'm just a little upset?

    But a kind BYCer offered some Marans eggs, and I'm going to be making that trip next payday!

    PS...we're using the broody because I'm so mean! I won't let DH buy an incubator. At 14, I believe our population is high enough for our backyard.

    Well, I've been talking to the egg-seller and we decided on an assortment of Marans eggs. So I'll be getting a few FBCMs, and some Blue Coppers and Wheatens, too! Good thing I have another batch to move to the hatcher before they arrive...

    *happy dance again*
