    Looking to buy some quality Wheaton Marans, prefer chicks or very young. Want 1 rooster and 4-5 hens to start.

    If you have an incubator, I can help you with eggs, if you decide to go that route, Thanks and have a blessed day. Nancy

    Quote:Thanks, I actually have 2 incubators, however after my less than successful venture with my first batch of shipped BCM's (just hatched) 3 of 20+ eggs hatched, I am not sure I want to try shipped eggs again. I currently have more BCM and Blue Marans eggs in my 2nd incubator. If I have better luck then I might re-think it. Once again I appreciate it and may get back with you soon,

    I have a flock of started CREE FARMS wheatens that I was going to breed, but now realize I don't have the room. The eggs they hatched from were 7s and 8s.

    they are 7 weeks, I think I have 4 cockerels and 5 pullets. If you are breeding you should take more roosters so that you can see how they develop out. The rooster is the centerpoint for the flock, in my opinion.
