    Are you sure you do not mean Wheaten Marans? If so I think The Farmers Wife has them.

    Quote:black tailed buff does not exist in the US I am not even sure if that is a color in the UK were Marans or from but if it is I am actually fairly certain that herechickchick is correct they are the same a wheaten Marans here in the US

    There is such a creature as the Black-tailed Buff.

    Also, Marans are not from the UK.

    There are a few people working on this color variety, but I'm not aware of anyone actively selling them yet. A few BTB Marans were shown earlier this year at a show in Marietta, GA, I believe. There is a proposed color standard for them posted on the Marans Chicken Club's website, and a discussion of the color genetics that creates them is online somewhere.

    Quote:Good luck finding these. Its exciting to get involved with a new breed. You should join one of the marans clubs. They have some yahoo chat groups you can search for. But wear a helmet and safty gear when you go there... those people are brutal !!! I got beat up on my first post!!! and quickly unjoined. (whew and I thought show dog people were bad) But if there are black tailed buffs available you will find them there.

    Edited to add: Sorry for going off topic!

    Peachick, boy am I sorry you got slammed. I so hesitate to post much on any breeder site as a newer breeder! People sure have strong feelings. I just looked at your website and your birds are beautiful. I held a sebbie baby last week and boy was he just precious and so soft.

    Good luck finding your elusive colored Marans, OP!

    Thanks Jenifer.

    Sebbie babies are so precious. I have hatched a great variety of birds, but there is nothing as special as a baby goose.

    As for the marans groups. OMG! I lurked for a few months. Then somone asked opinions on a specific breeder. My birds came from that breeder so I offered my opinion. Then some grumpy old fart starts yelling at me because I am not supposed to be promoting any one breeder because it is hurtful to the rest of the breeders..............what??!
    several people jumped in and defended me, but it was too late..... I was outta there!!

    Sorry, back on topic. Id like to see photos of black tailed buff marans... and what breeds were used to develop them??
