Blue Copper Marans are a beautiful color variety of the notorious Marans bird. Hens will lay a dark brown egg that can rival any Black Copper Marans hen next to it! These birds have all the typical Marans characteristics, including feathered shanks and copper hued neck feathers.
The “blue” color, like in most all other chicken genetics, does not breed true. The combination of a Blue to a Blue will only guarantee a 50% blue hatch rate. Combining a black copper with a blue splash will result in 100% blue offspring. Genetics are weird!
Consider these beauties to add some interest to your flock and your egg basket!
