    The hens are small and the roo is large for a bantam but a lot small than the standard size. The eggs are pretty dark for bantams. Darker than a brown egg and lighter than the terra cotta red eggs. I will try to post pictures.

    The top row of eggs are my bantam cuckoo maran eggs. The other two below, one is a cream banty egg and my brown Rhode Island Red egg, large fowl although it is more like a small large egg. I will take pic of the bcm later today when I go out to feed them. Thank you.

    Asking again - what are the weights on your stock? Rooster? hens? Also, height would be helpful as well. Thank you!

    Quote:As far as I know Bantam Marans were never imported to US.

    I was once scammed on ebay buying "Bantam Marans" eggs.

    Buyers beware.
