Tx - French Copper Maran
by Justin Thomley
Marans are "chocolate eggers" meaning their eggs are a deep chocolate brown color. They lay 3+ eggs a week.
The Copper Marans are quiet, friendly, and docile. They make a great pet or 4H fowl for young people and you will never find an aggressive rooster in this breed of birds.
The poultry world often overlooks the meat producing capabilities of the Marans. Marans grow quickly and produce a succulent, fine-textured, white meat.
What wonderful sweet birds to be around!
