    IF THEY KEEP LAYING LIKE THEY HAVE BEEN ALL WEEK, I WILL BE ABLE TO SEND QUITE A FEW EXTRAS!!!!!!

    WE ARE NPIP & AI TESTED KY-218


    These can be picked up too. We are located 90 miles south of Lexington KY. shipping is priority mail.

    These are from our pen of Blue Marans. We have recently separated our Blue Splash from our Blue Marans, 7.15.11. We have french Blue roo over french blue hens however you will get both clean and feather shanks. You still may get a higher ratio of splash as the separation was recent. There are pullets in this pen so you can expect pullet eggs. These pullets are our F1's and beautiful. You can expect a cuckoo too from these.
    The lines are predominately Davis lines.
    Take advantage of the discounted price. They have been selling for much more. Our birds are laying like crazy! We also have a waiting list for these Blues so I will not have too many of these auctions in order to fill those orders.
    The eggs are not as dark as the black coppers and we are working on that with these birds. Our stock came from Prather Poultry.

    PAYMENT IS PAYPAL ONLY, NO ECHECKS.
    MY PAYPAL ADDRESS IS [email protected]

    PLEASE SEND ANY SPECIAL SHIPPING NEEDS WHEN YOU PAY

    PAYMENT IS DUE IMMEDIATELY AFTER AUCTION ENDS. ANY DELAYS WILL EFFECT YOUR SHIPPING DATE AND HATCH RATE. THESE EGGS COLLECTED FOR THIS AUCTION WILL BE SENT. IF YOU CANNOT PAY FOR THEM PLEASE DO NOT BID. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE TO YOUR HATCH RATE DUE TO POSTAL HANDLING OR YOUR INCUBATION METHODS. ROUGH HANDLING CAN KEEP YOUR EGG FROM DEVELOPING ALONG WITH YOUR INCUBATION METHOD. PLEASE UNDERSTAND HATCHING EGGS ARE A RISK. SOMETIMES YOU WILL GET A VERY GOOD HATCH, SOMETIMES A FEW WILL HATCH AND SOMETIMES NONE WILL HATCH. I HAVE BEEN HAVING A 95%-100% HATCH HERE AT HOME. SO THEY ARE FERTILE. THERE ARE MANY FACTORS THAT CAN HAPPEN WITH SHIPPED EGGS TO KEEP THEM FROM DEVELOPING. IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH THAT PLEASE DO NOT BID. I HAVE BOUGHT SEVERAL HATCHING EGGS AND HAD GREAT HATCHES AND NONE DEVELOP. I UNDERSTAND IT'S A RISK AND DID NOT ASK FOR REPLACEMENTS AS THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES.
    PLEASE READ FEEDBACK TO MORE RECENT FEEDBACK ON PAST AUCTIONS.

    I FELT I NEEDED TO ADD THIS AS THE LAST AUCTION, 5.7.11 WAS NEVER PAID FOR AND NO CONTACT. THOSE EGGS WENT TO WASTE. PLEASE PAY FOR YOUR EGGS WHEN THE AUCTION ENDS. THANKYOU!! AND HAPPY BIDDING! [​IMG]
    PICS ARE OF ORIGINAL PARENT BIRDS AND SOME FULL SIBLINGS. I WILL TAKE MORE PICS OF THE F1'S. I WILL ALSO BE HAVING SOME F2'S HATCHING IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.

    Can the blue be kept in the same pen as the Black coppers and if so what would the results be? Thanks!

    You can expect a cuckoo too from these.

    Could you explain why cuckoo would come from these?
    Do you have pictures of your eggs? Your current egg color?

    Quote:I am no expert, but I will share with you what I was told.......
    There are several varieties of Marans, for example:
    Birchen (Silver Birchen)
    Black (Blue, Black, and Splash)
    Black Copper (Blue Copper, Black Copper, Splash Copper)
    Black Tailed Buff (Blue Tailed Buff, Black Tailed Buff, Splash Tailed Buff)
    Columbian (Blue Columbian, Black Columbian, Splash Columbian)
    Cuckoo - Silver Cuckoo (Blue Cuckoo, Black Cuckoo, Splash Cuckoo)
    Golden Cuckoo
    Golden Salmon - Red Duckwing, Black-Breasted Red (Blue Silver Salmon, Black Silver Salmon, Splash Silver Salmon)
    Wheaten (Blue Wheaten, Black Wheaten, Splash Wheaten)
    White

    I was told not to cross the varieties, due to the differences in their genetics.

    Actually, it is all written out on a French Marans website somewhere. Well, here is some information which you may be interested in:
    http://marans-club.perso.neuf.fr/ncuiang.htm#NCUI

    "The Plain-Black (Blue, Black, Splash) variety corresponds itself to a different mutation and belongs to another genetic family different from that of the Brown-red (Black Copper Marans)."

    Again, I am no expert. This is just what I have been told.​

    I have taken current pics just have not uploaded them yet and will not be able to before this auction ends. there is comments on feedback regarding the eggs though.
    As to the Cuckoo, I bought my original eggs from Prathers Poultry and when they were with the blue splash I was getting chicks looking like blue cuckoos. I asked the breeder and he said he too was getting the same this year. They are rather beautiful by far.
    I am hatching some of the first eggs after separating the blue splash. They have just hatched so it will be a few weeks before seeing what they will feather out like. The two varieties have been separated since 7/15/11.
