I have a pen of Marans (mixed colors) that is laying well! I've bred the Marans with an eye towards heavier birds that lay well (for a good dual-purpose bird) - this is a great way to add some colorful, productive layers to your flock, and make it more sustainable, with large cockerals that are great for eating! As with all shipped hatching eggs, I cannot guarantee your hatch due to the circumstances that the eggs might be subjected to during shipping. I have gotten good feedback on my packaging and hatch results so far. That being said...if you have a very poor hatch, please let me know and I will do what I can to work with you! $20 will be paid via PayPal and includes shipping.
