At Michigan Marans, we have been breeding for quality birds, those that keep to the true French standard of egg color, feathered shanks, eye color, and feather color, among several other traits. We started with many birds and now are only offering the offspring of a breeding quad, because they are the best that we have. The pictures you see, I took recently. The egg pictures are indoor pictures under lights. What you see is what you get, and the same eggs we hatch from. We are very proud of our birds, we take a lot of time and care to select the best. I am hatching April 29th! Chicks are $10 each, minimum 6. Shipping is extra. Please use our website to check out: mimarans.webs.com and go to the Web Store page.
