Breed Overview: 

Rising in popularity among hobbyists and homesteaders alike, the French Black Copper Marans is a staple for any flock. They are im-peck-ably hardy, tolerating both warmer and cooler climates with ease. Reaching an average weight of 6-8lbs, they can certainly sustain any homesteader looking for slower maturing poultry that can be harvested on a more forgiving schedule than common broilers. Despite originating as a dual-purpose breed, the Black Copper Marans quickly became renowned for having the best tasting egg in the world. The French Ministry of Agriculture attributes this bold claim to the smaller pores and thicker membrane the Marans eggshells possess, providing better protection against salmonella. This allows the eggs to stay fresh for longer periods of time. With this in mind, it's easy to see how this breed captured the heart of author Ian Fleming, and subsequently James Bond himself. Our flock consistently produces gorgeous dark chocolate eggs that are graded between a 6-8 on the egg color chart designed by The Marans Club. Our bloodlines are descended from French imports, meaning they possess the desirable feathered shanks.

FAQs - Baby Chicks

All of our breeds are sold straight run, and customers have a 50/50 chance of receiving males or females. If you are looking for a certain number of female chicks, we'd suggest adding a few extras to your order. We do offer older ages including: juveniles, adults, laying hens, pullets or roosters if you have a specific need. The list of those breeds is found here ... We are happy to arrange a custom order as well. Please contact us.

No, we do not vaccinate our flock or baby chicks. We constantly monitor this with our poultry vet to ensure our birds are healthy and robust. We are tested yearly for disease as NPIP participants and customers can be confident that they are receiving healthy, happy chicks from our farms.

Did you know?... They don't crow till about 12 weeks at the absolute earliest, most later than that.

Couple options for roosters...

1. Use him for food for the family, maybe you have a hunter in the family that could help. Often there are families that will buy or take the rooster for meat for their family.

2. Once hes older than four months old, Pratt's Pets (Glendale location) will purchase them from you for $10 per. If they're younger than four months, the Stock Shop will accept them if they have space.

3. You could also post them in the Arizona Backyard Chicken group on Facebook to rehome him. Just have to be VERY careful with your wording. Rehome, sale and wording like that is not allowed by FB.

4. Another app called MeWe you can rehome/sell there in the Arizona Backyard Chicken group but not nearly as many people in the group.

Our available chicks and eggs are always updated on our website. You can find the next available chicks here or contact us to see what we have to take home today. We often have a few.

The locations of our farms we are generally able to provide chicks and hatching eggs year around. Our hens do get 2-3 months off per year for a break to molt, rotate and just be a chicken. This is the time of year we will see lower egg counts and our availability less.

Our recommendation and best practices: From October to March we suggest a shipping minimum of 10 chicks to ensure that chicks stay warm enough during transit. During the peak months, April -September, the recommended minimum to 6 chicks.

We gladly offer local pick up for your order. We have strict biosecurity measures for both our flocks safety. Once your order has been placed and notified your order is ready to come home, we pre-arrange a pick up time and date with you to come to our pick up drive-thru. Very simple, we have your order boxed and ready to travel home for you. You will not need to bring any boxes, cartons or crates. Local pick up orders are considered sale is final.
