Marans are widely known for having the “best tasting egg in the world.” Marans eggs are dark brown in color or deep red chestnut in other parts of the world. Marans will lay approximately 150 eggs per year. Marans eggs are nothing similar to what you are used to eating from the store. Marans egg color can be compared to dark chocolate but that doesn't even describe the range of their color hues. Marans are excellent dual purpose birds, and can reach a weight of 6-8 pounds! With their large sized dark brown eggs, along with excellent tasting meat these birds are a great choice for a backyard flock or a homestead family.
French Black Copper Marans have been around for decades and originated in France several years ago. They have proven themselves to be very hardy birds, heat and cold tolerant, and easy to care for.
