Description:

We're so proud to bring you this rare French breed, and we're anxious to know what you think of it! You know and love the Black Copper Marans, and now we're offering this far more rare Marans variety whose eggs are usually as dark as the Black Copper. If you value a colorful egg basket, Marans are a "must" for your flock!

PLEASE NOTE: The color blue does not hatch "true" in chickens. Blue is a diluting gene for black. So, 50% of our Blue Birchen Marans will hatch blue, and 25% will be black. The last 25% will be "splash," having received two diluting genes. Splash is a very light color, pale blue or white with "splashes" of black and darker blue in the feathers, especially in the wings and tail. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN YOU ORDER! Not all of your blues will actually be blue!

*Please note that while Birchen Marans chiefly lay dark chocolate eggs, a small percentage will lay a lighter brown. Each hen will give ONE egg color. The egg color will not change from one egg being laid to another.

* The minimum order of day-old chicks shipped to Rhode Island is 12 due to Rhode Island state law.


 

Product Features:

* We can ship as few as three baby chicks! Our minimums are based on your zip code, and how long the USPS tells us it will take for your order to arrive at your post office. The longer they tell us it will take, the higher your minimum. Find out your minimum chick order

* Any order of 15+ chicks ships via USPS Priority Mail service, and 3-14 chicks ship via USPS Express Mail.
Why we use the USPS
