Over the weekend I asked a country friend if she had any fertile eggs I could buy/trade off of her. Her reply was positive, but she also mentioned she had a country friend who had some Marans, Wheaten and Black Copper, and maybe he had some fertile eggs he’d be willing to barter for.
So this evening I went and picked them up! Take a look at how beautiful the eggs are.
They are out of Black Copper hens and a Wheaten Roo. I put two eggs from my Orpingtons in the top of the carton for reference. The birds are beautiful too.
I put 7 of them under my broody Orpington tonight. I cracked one when trying to put them under her 😦
