    Since there is no American standard for this breed, and hardly any web presence of the club (or two?) that exist, I find it difficult to find a breeder list.

    I want to get some local eggs in the spring so I don't have to deal with the postal service, and I think it'd be cool to hatch them. I would prefer the Black Copper (ie. red-black) color, since that's the "french" color, and I could color-code the chickens. ("The white ones lay white eggs, the blue ones blue eggs, and the dark brown ones...") :LOL:

    Check out Bevs Marans-she's in Florida, I think, and I believe sells hatching eggs, but not sure. I know you don't want to deal with the P.O. but here is her site, just in case you cant find any locally.
