French Black Copper Maran Fertile Hatching Eggs

$40.00

Our French Black Copper Maran fertile hatching eggs are from hens laying between grade 5-7 color eggs on the Marans of America color chart. Each from your hatched generation certainly has the potential of laying much darker eggs through our continued egg-color improvement breedings. Our goal is to continuously improve our egg color while still maintaining breed standards—which can be difficult to balance.

Our French Black Copper Maran fertile hatching eggs are from hens laying between grade 5-7 color eggs on the Marans of America color chart. Each from your hatched generation certainly has the potential of laying much darker eggs through our continued egg-color improvement breedings. It is imperative for you to understand that we simply cannot promise your specific hens hatched from our fertile eggs will produce perfectly deep-copper or chocolate-tone eggs. Our goal is to continuously improve our egg color while still maintaining breed standards—which can be difficult to balance.

We are only in the beginning of our breeding program here and sometimes we’ll get a poor-color egg layer and will put her in with the “for market eggs” laying hens. Eggs you receive will be from our dark-egg breeding stock, but are from older proven hens who are later in their laying maturity which means they lay lighter eggs. As hens age they lay lighter and lighter color as their finite amount of dye depletes.

Each Order is for 12 Fertile Hatching Eggs
