Marans

This breed was developed in France in the mid 1800's in the town for which it bears its name, Marans. They had made their way to England in the early 1900's and quickly became very popular for their very dark brown eggs - a trait they are still known for today. These beautiful birds were first exhibited in 1929 in Paris by the Poultry Breeders Society of France and since then have gradually made themselves popular in various countries around the world.

Sometimes white birds are over rated, but these French White Marans are truely beautiful. With bright red combs and wattles against bright white feathers that run from tip to toe, and slate-colored legs, these white wonders are a sight to behold. Hens lay the same dark brown eggs as the French Black Copper Marans.
