The French Black Copper Marans are a rare breed not often seen in the United States. An import ban reduced the genetic diversity of the French Black Copper Marans and flocks of this chicken are therefore hard to find. Cackle Hatchery® carefully breeds this chicken to improve genetic diversity and advance the health of the chicken. “This breed lays an egg with a light red color to light chocolate bloom color on the shell that are a favorite among chefs and farmers alike. Due to the rarity of this breed, limited quantities are available so order yours as soon as possible and contact us to find out when new chicks are available. Our cackle flock lays egg shell colors of 3-8 on the French Marans Egg color chart found in the gallery.
Sexing Note: Most of our breeds we can average 90% accuracy on gender sexing. However, with the French Marans breed, it is more difficult for the vent sexor to make this determination, so for this breed, our guarantee is 75% accuracy.
