    I have 2 pair of silver marans that are 5 wks old, so I guess it'd need to be a couple months before they were ready to send unless you wanted something else I have as they are still rather small for just 4 of them to ship.

    Gina has some of the darkest marans eggs I have seen and the chicks are the sweetest little guys. I hope you find a few hens and Enjoy Dennis

    Thanks Dennis. I finally got to set some of my eggs and the hen should hatch out soon. I am in Tennessee and have not gotten brave enough to ship chicks. I do ship eggs,but it's getting too hot to do that. I will begin shipping again in the Fall.

    I have three MEAN cuckoo marans roos that are gonna be dinner REAL SOON. They all have crooked toes, anyway. Don't buy any from Murray McMurray. Could be a genetic defect there. They are going to be tasty roasters, though! [​IMG]

    Well, Gina...
    like I said...if you get brave...
    I was affraid to ship for along time...it really was not so bad as I had thought. I remember that same fear, though.[​IMG]

    No, I do not want hatchery birds. So I will not be ordering from McMurray.
    Thanks everyone.
