White Marans Day Old Chick
Are you looking for those dark brown eggs to round out your egg basket? Look no further! Egg color is what initially draws many folks to the Marans, but they are so much more than a pretty egg. When we first started working with this breed, we were wowed by their friendly and curious temperament as well as their beauty.
Our White Marans carry the same genetics as our Black Copper Marans, but with two copies of the recessive white gene. We do not have a full-fledged White Marans clan mating breeding program at this time. However, we really enjoy them and have kept a small group for breeding purposes so that we can share.
These White Marans can lay just as dark of an egg as their Black Copper counterparts, which generally lay 4-6 on the egg shade chart, although there is always variation from bird to bird and through the year. Egg color tends to lighten as the laying season progresses or during times of heat or stress.
We breed for temperament and health first, as well as to the Standard of Perfection. Our Marans roosters are friendly, flirty, and protective, and our hens are curious and outgoing. They do not tend to go broody.
Chicks are sold straight run (unsexed)--they could be male or female.
Chicks are available for local pickup only.
