We are offering one dozen of our Black Copper Marans eggs plus any extras we have on shipping day. Our birds were purchased from private breeders and most were purchased as exhibition stock. We have a total of 12 Wade Jeane hens, covered by 2 beautiful Davis roos. The picture of the eggs is at their darkest at the very beginning of the laying season. The girls are at the early mid part of their laying season and most are still laying nice dark eggs. We've been working on our flock of Marans to meet the French standards and are confident our birds are there. All have feathered shanks, both hens and roos. However, occasionally you could hatch a clean legged chick (rare but it can happen). We are hatching these eggs and fertility is good. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we can not guarantee your hatch rate or the hatchability on shipped eggs. We do guarantee your eggs to arrive on time and in good condition. Because of the delicate time frame of hatching eggs we accept PayPal online payments only (no E-checks please). If you do not use PayPal and would still like to purchase eggs from us please contact us prior to bidding. Eggs will ship Tuesday or Wednesday after the sale. Please PM us at the end of the sale for a total and payment instructions. (All of the pictures on my auctions were taken by me of our chickens) Thanks and good luck!
