Quote:Wouldn't the Marans Club be a better place to go to ask this question? Aren't they the ones actually breeding and promoting SOP Marans? Or am I misunderstanding the intent of the original question? Does it really matter where I ask this ?, "where ever" there are marans owners and breeders wouldn't that be the place to ask this ?........, I have asked this ? on one of the Marans Clubs forum and got no answers............... Big difference about asking on the Marans Club board v. here is that there they use real names so you can check them out - check references and follow up. Here, we all use an alias. Any of us can say anything we want with absolutely zero accountability.
