This variety is very rare, and most hatcheries don't even offer them. The Marans chicks you find offered at hatcheries are all of the Silver Cuckoo variety--other varieties are nearly impossible to find. These eggs sell out fast!

The Marans breed was developed originally developed in France in the mid 1800's in the town for which it bears its name, Marans. (This is why the name of the breed always has the "S" at the end, whether singular or plural.) Marans became popular for their dark mahogany-brown eggs--a trait they are still known for today. Black Coppers have the capability of laying the darkest eggs of all the "chocolate egger" Marans varieties we carry. The beautiful Black Copper Marans are calm, quiet and gentle. These birds may have lightly feathered legs or bare legs.

Colored eggs are always a more brilliant color early every laying season, and slowly fade as the season progresses. So, the first eggs a pullet ever lays will be her darkest. The "dye" is brand new and abundant! As the eggs get more frequent and larger, they will slightly lighten in color, as more of the coloring is used every day and is spread out over a larger egg surface area. In addition, the eggs will slightly darken again after your hen has gone through a period of reduced laying or rest, for example after a molt.

Please note that because of the variable nature of egg color throughout a season, the eggs you receive may be lighter than those in our photo, but as we selectively breed for the darkest eggs, every hen you hatch will be capable of producing eggs of the color shown in the photo. Please be patient! We anticipate a long waiting list for these beauties.
