Well I have been buying bcm eggs and incubating them for a year. Slowly and because of low hate rates got the flock up to 12 birds. Had some big plans but a coyote got all of them one night. Well I didnt want to wait for another year of hatching eggs from ebay so I just got 12 golden laced wyandottes from cackle. I do have room for another flock of 12 but thats the big question mark. Was thinking something exotic like Penedesenca or game birds. I see the marans in a big surge would think that at some point they wont be wanted so much. But what is? Whats gonna be the next big bird that you have to have? Anyone seeing trends? Next question. Everyone is selling hatching eggs but I only see hatcheries selling mail order chicks. Doesnt seem like theres much to be made on the hatching egg selling but I would think selling mail order chicks you could make a little more. Has anyone done this on a small scale and did they have any problems with the post office?
