Black copper marans are friendly, hardy, dual purpose birds. They are average layers of medium to dark brown eggs. Pullets that hatch should lay eggs ranging between 5 and 8 on the Marans scale. We are actively selecting for darkening egg color in our stock.
Please note that Marans egg color do fade throughout the laying season. If you recieve eggs from us that are lighter than you expected, please note that is not an indication of what the chicks that hatch will lay. It just may mean our birds are low on toner and in need of a molt. We do not keep any birds that lay less than a 5 in our breeding program and or have eggs that fade past a 4 during the season. Our birds are certainly not perfect, but we are very focused on our breeding goals.
This is for one 1/2 dozen (6) fertilized Hatching Eggs. Orders are scheduled once they are recieved. Shipping is included in the listed price. Eggs typically arrive in 1-3 days.
