    I'm looking for 2 new roos (will pay for them), and finding a pair that was raised together turned out to be a hard task!!

    I'll be using them in my breeding program, so ideally they are:
    MUST be within bred standards
    * 1 black copper, 1 blue (2 blacks work as well, but not preferable)
    * LOTS of feathers on their legs
    * Born from a hen that lays VERY DARK eggs, preferably a 7 or 8
    * Between 6 and 18 months of age (older is fine, but not preferable)

    I live in Yelm / Olympia area, WA state.

    Thank you! :)

    Hiya!!

    I can provide you with a pair that are currently housed in my bachelor pad. I do ship.

    They boys are full grown, but only about 6 mos, so they aren't nearly as heavy as they will be at a year. The lankiness is a plus on the shipping weight. I have a blue and 2 Black Coppers available, and you can look back at my past auctions to see my birds.

    I would put the shipping cost at right around $100, though it may be cheaper depending on the actual weight of the boys. The box is $20, but if you want to send me two singles, I can tape them together.

    That's one of them- I've had Marans for years, so there are a bunch of them. I have an auction up in the 24 hour crazy auction thread and it gives a little bit of info. I can get you pics of the boys tonight in a couple of hours.

    Cheers,

    Renee

    Would you still happen to have the roos? If yes, what egg color did they come from, and do you have their pictures?

    Thanks!
