Hi to every one .
been 10 month since I m back from Europe .after dealing with some health issus and losing all my old marans stock .
all good now .I spent last 10 month rebuilding my marans and CLB stock .manage to do just that .
I have gethered over 100marans chooks from 4 different breeders ,many varieties .all fully grown now and breeding from them .nice to see some marans chicks again .well happy .

this time I have no parterner in business .all chooks are mine and I m the only one responsible for taking decisions . very good .

more chicks will be hatching this weekend .my first 4 hatch are line breeding .multipling each line I bought without adding any thing to it first .so I can more chooks from each line to work with next year .

the pairing I m doing now are for dark eggs traits and correct marans body type . lot hens lay dark eggs but they do not have a correct conformation .luck of chest depth ,or short back ,high tail etc..........

all good so far .

This is a great re-start! What are the CLB chooks you have, any news and photos of them would be good - along with following your Marans updates.

problem I have with a CLB is I do not have a rooster .been looking around hasn t come close off fidding a good cockerels .all the cockerels I have seen are very small .way too small .the SOP call for 6Ib a cockerel and 7Ib for a rooster .

CLB in this country are in real trouble .very hard to find any thing good .
Tony ,Debra ana my self are working together ,swaping chooks and eggs to restore the breed and stabilize few line s if we can .
