    I am looking for b c marans. I want really dark egg producers, such as the Bev Davis line. Is there anyone in NY with chicks available?

    There's a poultry show at the State Fairgrounds in Syracuse on 6/3. One of the Marans exhibitors paid for sale cages so I expect there will be some started birds for sale there.

    I did have luck. A few weeks ago I got some blue copper and black copper (Bev Davis line) from marquisella (that's her BYC name). Although she said something about wrapping up incubating for the season because the hen's productivity slows in the heat. You could try sending her a PM to inquire. She is actively posting on the "Black Copper Marans discussion thread." She is located in central NY. Good luck!
