If you are looking for rare Marans colors, look no further. We have Blue Birchen Marans eggs! Colored eggs are always a more brilliant color early every laying season, and slowly fade as the season progresses. If you are an admirer of blue genetics, Blue Birchens--along with the Blue Copper Marans--are a must. Chicks from these eggs have a 50% chance of hatching Blue Birchen, a 25% chance of hatching Birchen and a 25% of hatching Splash Birchen. Blue Birchens are very rare, and most hatcheries don't even offer them, whether as eggs or day-old chicks. The Marans chicks you find offered at hatcheries are all of the Silver Cuckoo variety--other varieties of Marans are nearly impossible to find. The Blue Birchens are so rare, we don't even offer them as chicks, because we can't get enough eggs to set in quantity. These eggs will 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. The beautiful Blue Birchen Marans are calm, quiet and gentle. Our Blue Birchen Marans will have feathered legs, while some may have non-feathered shanks.

We do select for the darkest eggs with our Blue Birchens, but egg color with this variety is a work in progress. Eggs are medium dark but not deep chocolate like those of the Black Coppers. We anticipate a long waiting list for these beauties as they will make wonderful breeding stock.
