Black Copper Marans

The black copper marans is the ultimate brown egg layer. They're often referred to as the "chocolate egg chicken". They're large, calm birds that add variety to your egg basket.

We've worked to gather genetics from several lines. Our flock includes Byers line and Little Peddler genetics. We select for dark eggs by only hatching the darkest that are laid. Our birds have correctly feathered shanks. 

We anticipate great things with the upcoming grow outs. We've gone to great lengths to ensure our genetics are second to none. We have developed a very diverse line of birds here, having sourced genetics from multiple successful breeders. We've added more Little Peddler birds, as well as birds from Mashburn's Marans. We have birds maturing nicely that are from the recent Greenfire Farm import, as well as birds from their 2016 APA certified flock. Why is the APA certification a big deal? Well, APA certification means that a minimum of 98% of the birds in the flock confirm to the major breed traits identified by the Standard of Perfection. We are also experimenting with bringing in some blue copper genetics for a little added variety.

Black Copper Marans Hatching Eggs
from 6.00

We will ship the darkest eggs we have available at the time of the order. Egg color does lighten as the season advances, so while summertime eggs may not be as dark as early spring eggs, the chicks you hatch will have the potential. We regularly trap nest and reassign hens that are laying too light for our standards to the breakfast production line.
