    Hard to tell from the picture, but I want to say I see some improvement in color. Does it look darker than the egg it hatched from to you?
    Since true Black Marans are really hard to get your hands on you can just about bet you have Black Copper. Test mating is the only way to figure that out for sure and you would need the elusive Black Marans cock.

    Ivermectin is used on humans in Africa for worm treatment so it is safe for humans. I have used it and gone ahead and eaten the eggs anyway with no ill effects. But I've read where many people wait 2 weeks anyway.

    ETA: I do tell my egg customers about it. If they are comfortable with the idea, they go ahead and get them. If not, they pass on them for two weeks.

    Have had this same discussion several times in the last few weeks with others - still have people that are freaked out about it and don't want to risk ingestion of ivermectin themselves, yet get upset because no one can tell them with a certain withdrawal period. But then they don't want to use other methods of pest control with their chickens. Can't always have your cake and eat it too. [​IMG]

    Well It's been a while since I posted on this thread but Hey everyone!

    Been busy trying to sell the house and now I think it's sold. Found a place north of Woodville that I want. Hopefully the deal with go through. It's on 5 acres, and the house sits on top of a hill. Just beautiful out there.

    Gee...wishing for something a little darker. Maybe this is going to take longer than I thought.

    Yes it is! Thanks. And keep crossing those fingers for me, I know I am. Getting that place is conditional on mine closing on time and I don't hvae a closing date yet but I'm positive it will happen.
