We're beyond excited to offer you this breed. We breed chiefly for
egg color, with an additional view toward hardiness and the breed
standard, so you can expect to see an egg anywhere from dark brown to
deep reddish-brown, to medium brown with many dark speckles. Don't
forget that the very darkest eggs you receive from your lovely Black
Copper Marans hen will be her first egg, and the eggs will lighten ever
so slightly with each egg, up until her annual molt. After that, you
will once again see her darkest egg.
For those of you who adore a colorful egg basket, this breed is a must-have!
make wonderful pets, too - they are hardy, calm and quiet, and bear
confinement well. They are said to be good foragers without being TOO
destructive to your garden.
For those of you interested in showing, these birds originally came from Bev Davis and Wade Jeane lines.Read more about Marans.
