We've had an interest in Black Copper Marans for a while now and would like to add a few to our small flock this upcoming year. We have no interest in showing, so finding top of the line birds isn't important, but we would like "decent" birds just in case we want to hatch out a few eggs at some point (for ourself, not to sell). Our chickens are "pet egg layers" and having some darker eggs would be fun... We're in eastern NC.... anyone know of any BCM breeders around? Or reputable ones to order from? We'd probably be looking for 4-5 girls and one roo. Just from skimming through posts, I'm not sure if the big hatcheries that have BCM are decent quality... anyone know? Also, can anyone shed any light on what we'd expect to pay for some decent BCMs? In fact, any and all info you guys can provide about BCMs would be wonderful I've read in several places that the roosters are generally pretty docile... true? Thanks!!
