If any new breeds will be added to the catalog for next year, it will be announced later in the fall.

I would love to own some Black Copper, Blue Copper, or Splash Marans, but we trust McMurray and some locals. Those few do not carry them so we do not have them. My son really wants Legbars, Olive Eggers, White Minorca's, and Favacaunas. We also will check at fairs and chicken swaps when we get particular.

We also love the Lavender Orpies. We were hoping to find some Russian Orloffs just as pets. We are also looking for a pair of White Minorca's, Legbars, a purebred Araucana, and a purebred Ameraucana. My Grandparents have shopped from McMurray for a long time, and their selection has been growing over the years. I pray that they are blessed enough to continue providing us with beautiful, healthy birds. Even if I cannot get exactly what I want, I know that this company will be consistent with making me happy with all of my orders.

I am interested in ordering Black Copper Marans from you, as well. Any chance of your carrying them?

We do not have any new breeds for 2015. It is possible we may have Copper Marans in the future, but not sure at this time.

Wait. Betty, do you mean like Emu color or a torquise? I finally did find a breeder with Lavender Ameraucanas and Blue/Splash Marans. The Ameraucana eggs from their farm are much darker than what I am used to. This means that by the end of the summer we will have darker blue eggs in our basket and very dark chocolate eggs. We also hatched a Cream Legbar to add some more blue and something new to our flock.

The breeder is in North Carolina. This week I am going to a poultry show. I am meeting a friend who has been in this business for 60 years. I am searching for a Mille Fleur trio. My son is looking for a Splash Marans female for his roo.

We have had our Blue Marans for a full year now. My son ordered a variety of eggs, and our girl was one in the bunch. She is gorgeous and lays a beautiful egg. I would still love to own some BCM.

I am searching high and low for BCM's and Olive Eggers. Any idea where I can get some? Is there a reason they are not easy to get? Thanks!

Many varieties of the Marans family can be found through breeders. Check out backyardchickens.com. Or simply google the breed in search of sellers. There are some available at hatcheries. The issue with dealing with hatcheries that you do not know is a big chance. You do not know what they are breeding for. They could be breeding them just to have for sale. At least a breeder can answer you questions about the bird. Also you can see that McMurray puts thought into their breeding programs, and seems to know their birds. The chick selector information has even changed for some breeds over the years. This lets you know that they are actually paying attention

About Olive Eggers...If you can have roosters and breed, you can have Olive Eggers. McMurray has Cuckoo Marans, Easter Egg ers, and Whiting True Blue. These breeds can create Olive Eggers. A Marans rooster crossed with any of the blue/ blue-green egg laying hens will likely produce a chick that will eventually lay olive colored eggs.

I got some Black Copper Maran eggs on ebay, had good luck with an incubator, got 3 out of 4 to hatch. So far so good. I just want to see the breed expanded in numbers.
