    Listing for sale 12+ (I try to include 2 extra per shipment) fertile Black Copper Marans hatching eggs. My flock is bred for exhibition as well as for dark eggs. In fact, the Marans Chicken Club USA recently introduced a brouchure with facts about the breed, including conformation sketches and a picture of some very dark eggs...the eggs in the picture are from my flock. While my name is not credited to the photo, it's due to me asking them not to print my name with the picture. I have included the picture before cropping for this add.

    That said, hens do lay lighter eggs as they go through their cycles; since my flock consists of a few older, reliable, and exhibition quality hens, you may receive some eggs that are not as dark as the pictures. The pictures show an example of what the potential may be that you can see from the pullets you hatch.

    My line is mostly Bev Davis, and I mentor directly with her. While my birds are bred for exhibition, this in no way guarantees that your hatch will produce a show winner; I also cannot guarantee your hatch results. I check fertility weekly, and if I find even one egg that is unfertile, I adjust the ratio of cock to hen and continue checking until all check fertile before shipping again.

    My flock continues to be a work in progress; I have been breeding them close to 8 years now, but as this breed is so new to the APA, most are considered project birds.

    Sales are PayPal only, shipping is vial USPS Priority Mail, and price includes the hatching eggs, shipping, and packaging. I package in individual bubble wrap pouches, surrounded by many layers of bubble wrap (I will not ship in egg cartons).

    I am only offering a few sets at this price, and have only the following shipment dates available:

    Monday, March 3
    Monday, March 10
    Monday, March 17
    Monday, March 24
    (1st set)
    Monday, March 24 (2nd set)

    MANY THANKS for the wonderful response - I hope everyone is quite pleased with their hatches!! I may be listing eggs for April & May in a few weeks.

    Please PM with any questions.
