I will either get two or three total tomorrow. I don't want to try to integrate a single chick. I don't want to try to integrate a single chick. Somebody said the marans from hatcheries, feed stores, don't really laid dark brown eggs. Does anybody have any experience with this?
I think if you want the deep dark brown laying Marans you will need to find a breeder. I hatched out Black Copper Marans a few years back but I did not keep any. They were the French ones with leg feathers out of a top line so the eggs were nice but I don't need dark brown eggs because they were impossible to candle during incubation.
