    In search of a breeder for black Marans. I'm looking for hatching eggs currently, but it's very difficult to find them as if you search for them black copper comes up. Looking for breeders that breed to SOP.
    Thanks in advance

    Here is the NPIP link to look by state. Scroll through all the listings as all pages are not full, and could have many listings per state.

    Here are the breed codes for Marans - and the one for Black Maran is: R684

    Good Luck!

    Marans Market facebook group and Marans Central(by the Marans Club) did have some breeders who are part of the groups that show/breed black marans. Exciting since looks like the clubs are working really hard to get this as an accepted color variety!
