Description

The French call this color, “Fauve á Queue Noire”, and was first shown at an exhibition in Paris in 1932. The French Standard suggests the variety should, “correspond to those of the New Hampshire breed in color”.

This line was established from birds selected by prominent breeders throughout the US and is still a project in the works. Cackle Hatchery started this project in 2016 along with some bloodlines from Bill Grover. The hens are capable of laying eggs as dark as any other Marans. Selection should reflect a balance of type, egg color, as well as the chestnut feather color of the New Hampshire.

Notable defects to consider before buying this breed are: 40% chance of fused toes and/or web toes and 30% chance of males with extreme large combs. We hope to improve the genetic inefficiencies as this project develops but this is what you can expect for the 2021 hatching season.  Our cackle flock lays egg shell colors of 6-9 on the French Marans Egg color chart found in the gallery.

Like all Marans, the Black Tailed Red is a dual purpose breed. The hens can go broody, and make excellent mothers. They are VERY rare, and will make an exceptional addition to your homestead.

We also offer the French Marans Female Surplus and the Dark Brown Egg Female Surplus

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.
