Marans chickens originated in the town of Marans, France. This breed of chicken is a fast grower which makes them a dual-purpose bird. Roosters average 8lbs and hens 7lbs, but they are best known for their dark brown eggs. The Marans chicken lays the darkest egg of all other chicken breeds.
We raise three colors of Marans chickens: Black Copper, Blue Copper, and Blue Splash.
You can run all three colors of Marans chickens together and still get purebred Black Copper, Blue Copper, and Blue Splash Marans.
