Cuckoo Maran - Both French (feather-legged) and English (clean-legged) strains are kept together.  Selection is for the darkest color in the eggs.  During their first year of laying they are superb layers, from the second year on they love to become broody and egg production drops off.  Of the dark egg laying breeds, these are the tops for production.  They have a single comb with five or more points. We have maintained this breed since 2004. Chicks $5.00 each (10)   

 

 

 

Wheaten Maran - Typical wheaten color pattern.  These are still showing some variability in the color pattern.  Lay deep, dark brown eggs.We have maintained this breed since 2011.  Chicks $7.00 each (10)
