9 Black Copper Marans day-old-chicks
We are not just another Greenfire Farms reseller! Our Black Copper Marans roosters are straight from Greenfire Farms newly imported stock, while our hens are from Bev Davis, Wade Jeane and Greenfire Farm (A line) lines for diversity. After working with this breed for several years, they are now known as the Elk Valley Farm line!
Black Copper Marans (ALWAYS spelled ‘Marans’) have a rustic and traditional appearance. They stand confident and dignified! The hens are plump and the roosters with-hold a powerful pose. They stand with a perfect V-shaped triangular form. With their proud stance, feathered legs, and copper shine you can’t help but realize Marans are the ideal heritage breed to complete any homestead.
We sought out to find a line that would reliably produce dark colored eggs as well as follow the breed standard. We only hatch eggs that are either a 7,8 or 9 on the 2018 Marans color chart.
Marans are an excellent dual purpose breed but their unique attribute is the shell color of dark chocolate. It’s this extra deep brown egg that draws many French chefs to only cook with Copper Marans eggs. When cracked open, the yolk is bright orange and sits perfectly centered within the white and holds an ideal dome shape. Black Copper Marans eggs are reason enough to choose this breed as your go-to layer.
We guarantee live delivery and the health of the chicks if delivered within the USPS guaranteed time and picked up from the post office within three hours of their arrival. Chicks will only ship USPS Express which is the fastest option possible.
