    I was lucky and got 88 Cuckoo Maran's eggs got them started today. Have 2 little giants incubator , put most of the eggs in my better incubator and the rest in the incubator that I had to do a lot of patching on it.
    The lady I got them from gave me a special deal as some of the eggs were old and she didn't remember exactly how old so I put those in the old patched up incubator. She made a point that she wouldn't say for sure that they would hatch. She made sure I knew what I was getting. I was very willing to take the chance.
    The eggs are very dark , I am so pleased, her flock looked really good.
    The gods were smileing on me

    Lucky for you. I have become very interested in Marans. Getting about 10 chicks in a few days. Going to play with the breed and see what I can do. Good luck and post some pics when they hatch.

    I don't have a camera that is working and wouldn't know how to post them. Maybe I can get my daughter in law to post some for me , when they hatch, never had Cuckoo Maran's before, saw the pictures of the eggs and fell in love the color impressed my husband and brother in law. later
