    Sadly Marans can be slow to mature, so it might take you a bit to get some eggs.

    What are you feeding? Where are you/what's your weather like? Could they be hiding eggs from you?

    Are their combs getting red? If they are, they're at least approaching maturity and about to lay within a few weeks.
     
  3. I had one Pullet that laid 4 eggs starting at 24 weeks then nothing for 7 months! She just started laying again. One every two to three days! Love those chocolate eggs!
