Chick Pack™: BBS Marans Assortment
Black Copper Marans
Want exciting breeds without having to hatch at home? Priority Mail shipping is
included in the price of our new Chick Packs™ -- straight run value packs of 10, 15, or 20 rare
breed and designer chicks. Our specialty breeders incubate any eggs left
over after fulfilling orders for fertile hatching eggs, and hatch out
chicks for those of you who want rare chicken varieties.
This chick pack will have an assortment of BBS (Blue, Black and Splash Marans). We will make every effort to include all of the colors in this assortment!
Marans --"Marans" is always with an "s" even when singular--are lightly
feathered down the leg, and are good layers of beautiful, brown to
chocolate-brown colored eggs. Splash Marans tend to lay lighter eggs
than the others, while Black Coppers lay the darkest. They are all
typically docile, friendly birds, and can tend toward fatness as they
get older. Remember that shell color fades as the laying season
progresses, as with all breeds, and will darken again after a break in
laying (such as after a molt).
SEXING: These assortments will be straight run chicks, meaning
they will not be separated into males and females. This means that you
cannot choose to receive males or females; they will be shipped to you
"as hatched." If you need only males, only females, or specific
quantities of each, please choose from our Day Old Baby Chicks category.
VACCINES: Sorry, we're not offering a Marek's vaccine on this Chick Pack™.
