On the subject of the Marans……………………

According to my diary they have been due to lay for the last few weeks. I was, indeed, amazed at how large they have grown. Every day I checked for an egg but none were forthcoming. I let them out in the sunshine and was concerned at how aggressive they were getting, they kept chasing the other birds around, they hand’t done that before. The next day I hear a cockeral crowing……………yes they are both cockerals. I must have been in denial! The neighbours are cracking up.
I have adverts out but so far no takers. They are going to have to go, someone has sent me a receipe for braised Maran…………………………My sojourn into hatching eggs has hardly been very successful. Two eggs hatched out of six, both cockerals.

Magnificent birds, such a shame.
