French Marans

The French Marans (pronounced Muh-RAN) is highly prized for exceptional eggs.  Not only are they renowned for their amazing flavor and quality, but the deep mahogany color of the shell is truly a prize.  We breed three varieties- the traditional Black Copper, Blue Birchen, and Lavender.  

This a calm, quiet breed.  They are confident, but not aggressive.  They are healthy and cold hearty.  

Our breeding program is focused on the breed type (look of the bird) first, and egg color second.  Our girls are consistently producing a lovely, dark egg.  We are members of the Marans Club of America and collaborate with other top US breeders to protect the unique qualities of this rare breed.
