6-Week-Olds: Blue Cuckoo Marans
Blue Cuckoo Maran Hen
Product Features:Currently not available
Description:Don't have the time, equipment or inclination to care for chicks? Or were you ready for fresh eggs yesterday? This is the ticket! At 6-7 weeks old, these started pullets are ready to go outdoors, with no heat or special care requirements. Another wonderful benefit is that our juveniles are sexed twice, once at hatch and again at 6 weeks, which reduces your chance of ending up with roosters. Our six-week started pullets are floor-raised and socialized with humans, vaccinated for Marek's disease, and their beaks are intact--we never trim.
The Blue Cuckoo Marans breed is rare and beautiful, and another in our growing collection of Marans! The barring is more obvious on roosters, and hackle (neck) feathers will tend to be darker than the rest of the body. Like all Marans, the Blue Cuckoo variety is docile and gentle, although somewhat shy. Legs are lightly feathered and the body shape is stately -- not too large, not too thin, with an upright posture. Blue Cuckoo Marans are good layers of medium to large, medium-brown eggs.
All 6 week old Started Pullets are shipped USPS Express Mail. We are unable to ship to Minnesota, Hawaii, and US Territories due to importing regulations in those states. These pullets will be vaccinated for Marek's disease and will be 6 weeks old when shipped.
Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
