yep thats me.
it looks like 9 of my shipped Black Penedesenca eggs have hatched so far
That is great news!
I researched it a lot and tried to find some link. I even looked at geological soil similarities. Marans originated in the marshlands of the west central French Atlantic coast, Penedesencas near the Mediterranean - about 500 miles (800 km) to the South/Southeast. Not an insurmountable distance. However I believe that the color comes from crosses with gamecocks that were brought by sailors and some may have been dropped off in a Spanish port, possibly Barcelona and others of the same dark egg type dropped off in the port of Marans.
Though the egg shell colors are dark in both, there are tonal/hue differences.
I also saw some information that Langshans were used in the development of the Marans.
That's what I considered, or more likely much earlier.
OZ I gotta know what you and Marlon were arguing about. If it's not fit for polite company just PM me - Please !!!!!
Since this list was brought up again...
We had 78rpm records - hundreds of them. Some were 1/4 inch thick
We had a station wagon where the best seat was not a seat but in the "back-back" as we called it
I had my first McDonalds when I was ten - and was disgusted.
We had a quadraphonic record player
Tents had poles we lashed, were made of canvas and had no floor
Ten years ago I was paying a teenager to convert my cd collection to mp3 and she asked: "who is billy joel?"
I'll type a 'LOL' on that one.
a couple of years ago we saw Billy Joel in SoCal.
When he came out on stage he introduced himself as Billy's Father. It gave me a chuckle
I just had my first "broody" hatch. My bantam frizzle Cochin sat 3EE and 1 Buff chantecler eggs with 100% hatch.My DH wondered why we kept such a useless hen, now she has a job. Now just waiting to see if the silkie does as well ( gave them both eggs on the same day)
That is great!
You're welcome. Told you she had a lot! And you should see these babies now! Wow. Some of the nicest I've hatched with the nice beards and tops.
She wrote me and asked if it was me that sent you, and she said thanks a lot. Glad you got some.
