Blue, Black and Splash Marans
We are proud to offer the French Black Copper Marans. Marans originally came from crosses between local marsh chickens and gamecocks brought into French sea ports. Gradually they were bred to produce an elegant looking bird that you see today. Roosters of the black copper Marans have rich copper colored hackles on a black body, which has a lustrous green shine. Hens are black with copper specks in their hackles. Both have lightly feathered legs. The blue Marans look just like the blacks but their bodies are a blue color. The splash Marans are a light gray almost white with dark blue- gray spots.
Marans are a great dual purpose breed, that is especially known for its ability to lay dark coppery chocolate eggs. Marans also have excellent meat qualities, with roosters weighing in around 8 pounds. We have the Wade Jeane and Hodges Farms blood lines.
Mottled Japanese Bantams
Japanese bantams are one of the true bantam breeds. They were developed in Japan, where they are known as Chabo, meaning “dwarf”. Japanese are bred for their distinct V shaped bodies and short legs. They are a very active bred, that enjoys foraging. They are not cold hardy, and are hard to hatch due to a lethal gene. This lethal gene controls their shot legs, which the bred is known for.
