Please ignore bidder below, that was from a prior auction and I'm unable to delete that to repost, so Bids begin at $22.50 If all the ladies lay equally, you should expect roughly 60% Blue Copper Marans and 30% Splash Copper Marans and 10% Black Copper Marans.We have done fertility tests and received great feedback regarding shipped eggs as well.. This Pen represents Bev Davis and Wade Jeannee and also our own Garry farm lineage. Please remember that blue x splash will yield both blue copper and splash copper marans and that blue x blue yields blue,black and splash marans. Only first generation splashes are used in the breeder pen to prevent fadeout of the splashes!
