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.

Past customer service to a text I send. Looking for to do business with them.

I came across this hatchery while looking for a particular breed of laying hens. With in a few minutes somebody texted me back with all the information I was looking for.

We do our best to get to you asap. Being a small family farm we are not always able to be so immediate but we definitely try. Just 3 of us running the farm, we do not have an 'office person' just taking calls. We are knee deep with the farm... exactly where we focus so we can bring you outstanding birds.
