It's been a long, arduous winter.
I think we can all attest to that!
Enough to make anyone go just a little cuckcoo.
In fact, I am taking it one step further.
I've had an itch that I've needed to scratch...an itch of a new batch of Spring chicks.
It's been 3 years since I've added to my flock!
Numbers have dwindled and it's time to add some new peeps to the brood.
Half the fun is picking out new breeds and high on my list are the Cuckoo Marans!
Cuckoo Marans are listed under the rare breed heading, prized for their dark brown eggs...the darkest brown there is, chocolate brown in fact.
OK, truth be told, they had me at chocolate.
Forget golden eggs, my mitts just can't wait to hold a chocolate one!
So, as Spring comes into my life, so will the newbies.
I can hardly stand it!
