    I bought my Marans from him and they are beautiful. I'd consider paying $7 a chick if I didn't have to order $140 worth LOL. Despite my poultry addiction, that does sound a little crazy, but I guess you could spend that on 4 dozen eggs trying to hatch 20 birds.

    See I dont know. I really like the minimu but still I love hatching my own eggs. Maybe if I had a small bator and alot of land I would

    Their partridge penedesencas and cuckoo marans are beautiful, healthy birds and the marans are huge! I ordered all penedesencas and they weren't able to fill it (don't be scared, this happens with all small breeders) so I asked them to fill the rest of the box with marans and BLRW. I receiced what I believe are 1 regular cuckoo, 1 golden cuckoo, and 1 silver cuckoo. The BLRWs I ordered had all sorts of problems. I had several crippled wyandottes with leg problems which never improved and 1 with cross-beak. This problems aren't necessarily genetic, they could have been caused by improper incubation conditions (I'm not sure). Aside from the problems the coloring and lacing is great. They are really nice to work with and call or email you throughout the process.

    ooooooh [​IMG] I was going to order the BLRW eggs next time my banty cochin went broody. Doing the math, technically, if all eggs hatch, a dozen at most $40, each chick would be $3.33
