Lavender Marans

Due to recent predator losses, we are trying hard to rebuild our flock of Lavenders. We hope to have chicks for sale again in late 2019. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

The Lavender Marans is a breeding project that we're focusing on. We were drawn to the lavender coloration, but still desired the rich chocolate color of a marans egg. That seemed like an excellent opportunity for a bit of a breeding project to see if we could develop a chicken that embodied both.

The lavender gene, or self blue, is a recessive trait. Our lavender flock includes chickens that are lavender, as well as black split to lavender. The split is a chicken that is black, but carries the recessive gene. If that "split" black hen is crossed with a lavender rooster, half of her chicks will be lavender and half will be black split to lavender. We are focusing on introducing genetics from the Black Copper Marans to continue to darken the egg color. Our eggs are becoming progressively darker with each generation. These birds have nicely feathered shanks.

When purchasing chicks, you will receive all lavender chicks, but we cannot guarantee that in hatching eggs. Since we are actively improving our flock, it is possible to hatch black split to lavender chicks.

At times there may be a waiting list for chicks and eggs. If you submit an order and there is a wait list, you will be notified as quickly as possible.

Chicks ordered after June 1st may be hatched to order, meaning eggs will be incubated specifically to fill your order. Chicks will ship approximately 3-4 weeks from the time the order is placed.
