This morning my brother called. (He owns a feed store.)
I had asked him earlier if he was going to get in a
breed of chicken called a Cuckoo Maran. He said, that
he was but that they were hard to get because so
many people want them.
I had got online earlier and thought about ordering eggs
and getting a incubator but decided to ask him.
He said when I talked to him that he didn't expect any
until the end of March or beginning of April. I was okay with that
not really ready for chicks yet. He picks up his chicks at the post
office every Thursday morning.
He called and said that he had 25 Cuckoo Marans did I want some
I said yes, and I would be down to get them.
I got to the feed store and walked into his chicky room and he had so many
other kinds. I kinda went crazy. I got 2 New Jersey Giants, (my very favorite hen.)
4 Cuckoo Marans, 5 Silkies, 1 Silver Laced Wyndotte, 2 Welsummers.
The Marans and the Welsummers both lay really dark brown eggs. That is why
I wanted them. I am so excited. Nothing says spring, like baby chicks.
