That's why you quarantine new birds until you are happy they are healthy.

Re: Crossing Marans and Cochin/Faverolles?

You can breed whatever you like simon there are no no's regarding breeding. Those girls that hatched last september should be laying well still unless moulting of course.

Re: Possibly Broody or something else??

Sure way to find out is to try and move her whilst she is sat in the nestbox, if she growls and pecks you she is broody.

Cold morning ? It's august.

You will get mongrels that may or may not be easy on the eye. Egg colour will be lighter. Were these hens old when you bought them ?

Re: to duck or not to duck

If you have limited space dont get ducks because as already mentioned they will make a mess. I love my ducks but they got plenty of space.

Re: Late layer or normal?

About right age, most of the eggs will come in the warmer months and slow down through winter.

Re: mareks

I presume you mean vaccinations, not worth it on a small scale in my opinion. Doses come in lots of a 1000. Interhatch sell them.
