Somehow managed to purchase some blue french copper marans eggs on ebay! <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='blink' /> now how the heck did that happen? I swear there's another me that can't resist a bargain! <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':unsure:' />



I don't even keep marans! And they're large fowl too! Oh woe woe is me!

The first time I manage to get on here for ages and what do I find??????





Mind, I'm going to be on the lookout for CLB hatching eggs soon - if I hatch boys shall we have a go at creating bantams . . . . . .





Carole



BTW, I wait with bated breath to see what hatches from those eggs - anyone care to bet on the odds of them actually being marans?

Oh Dear! Squizz [ Not trying to teach my granny to suck eggs here] now how many times have you been warned about Ebay hatching eggs ? [Image: wink.gif]



Blue French Copper Maran eggs are they really ? Knowing what goes on on there they could well hatch Lesser Spotted Dinosaur's if they hatch at all. [Image: scared.gif]

What swung it for me was the seller said he was interested in the fertility of his eggs, but couldn't guarantee hatchability. He also had some hybrid cream legbar eggs up for auction, and in his write up said they were NOT pure cream legbars - it was enough to make me take a chance on the marans eggs! <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' />



Mind you the Lesser Spotted Dinosaurs will fit in nicely with the brahmas don't you think? <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':lol:' />

Shame on you Zenith <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' /> Poor Ali is desperately worried about what WILL hatch out (if any hatch at all!)
