  • A half dozen (6) hatching eggs from our Black Copper Marans.  We include extras whenever possible.

     

    Originating in France and named for the port town of Marans, this breed is prized for laying the darkest eggs in the chicken world.  From a deep speckled chocolate to reddish terra cotta, finding their eggs in the coop is always like discovering treasure. 

    James Bond and Queen Elizabeth II supposedly prefer Marans eggs - whether for their beauty or the belief that the heavier bloom on them makes them safer to eat, it's unclear.

    Early spring season eggs will be darker than later season eggs as the hens 'run out of ink' later in the year.  After their molt and winter rest, the color will darken.
