    I would do the same thing on my end. Sell off these marans as dark egg layers and start over with yours. Sounds like a good deal to me.

    And somebody isn't going to make as much money off his eggs for a bit... [​IMG]

    But the good news is, we can send you pics of the beautiful offspring for your listings when you are ready to sell them as hatching eggs. Yea, that's the ticket! [​IMG]

    I really want to do a couple dozen for free. I wouldn't feel right selling the first ones, having never shipped before. It will be an experiment that may pay off for the participants, and I don't have to worry about you guys selling my chicks in my area [​IMG]

    Took out 2 more hatchlings to the coolerbator to dry off. Checked the last three eggs. The upside down strange one stopped developing between day 16 and hatch and cooled down quickly. The other 2 have not internally pipped but still held their heat and the eggs look full up so I have put them back. Technically day 21 will end at 530pm.
    Some bugger placed a bid 2 minutes before the Ameraucana eggs auction ended. I wasn't having that and increased my bid and got them for $32.00 with $8.00 shipping from florida, so not too far. I will probably be up for some more next spring SC. As out of 10 5 of them will be roosters and I didn't have too much luck out of the last shipped ones. I did get the 3 turkey poults that I wanted though.

    My only reason for not doing CCL is the autosexing. It's hard enough to get rid of roosters straight run. If they can be separated at day 1 I'm afraid I would end up eating them all

    That's the best part!!!! I'm sure the roosters will go faster than you think because they are a rare breed.

    LMAO [​IMG]

    See, I try to show you some affection and this is the gratitude I get..... [​IMG]

    Wow. You'd have to intentionally wet mine down to make it look like that cause they don't stay out in the rain....lol Plus they are so fat and fluffy it would take a lot of water...lol
