My fantasy was to get a flock of French Black Copper Marans, and breed them for eggs, meat, show and to perpetuate the breed here in America. Then I spotted some white Marans eggs on ebay and fantasy changed a little. Here's photos of my birds.
Very nice looking flock there. They are beautiful birds, looks like you are going to have quite a color selection. The white roo is nicely chunky looking, they should make very good duel purpose birds. Have you had any eggs out of the whites?
