    Good luck. I've got some marans coming from Gina in a couple weeks I can't wait to actually see a marans egg.
  4. I just won some as well, I wonder if they are from the same place.
    The woman I bought from ended up making me a package of a variety of eggs since I wanted a couple of her items.She left the marans up for sale and made a new offering for me.
    They should arrive on Tuesday.
    I am excited to get mine as well, I also have coming Speckled Sussex,
    New Hampshire Reds ,Barred Rocks, Americanas, Buff Orpingtons, Brown Leg Horns,Golden Lakenvelders.
    Buff Brahmas coming from somewhere else.
    So we have a very busy month coming up here.
    I have a woman who owns a farm willing to take any chicks off of my hands in the end if I have too many of one kind ,too many roosters or what have you.
    So I figured I would take the chance and see since I have no idea what the hatch rate will be.
    We should be hatching around the same time. [​IMG]
