    I have two separate pens of Copper Black Marans. One is Bev Davis. The hens are huge, gentle and fully feathered. The rooster is blue copper, VERY BIG and also extremely gentle and even tolerates a younger cockerel that I put in with him and his girls, because I was short on space, (The cockerel is not crowing yet, and not breeding hens.) Nice birds, BIG dark eggs.

    The other pen is my bayhorsebonne line. They are Wade Gene and Ron Presley based line. My rooster in that pen is my best CBM roo of all. He is everything I ever wanted in a CBM rooster. You can see a pic of him on my website. I do not have pics of the Bev Davis birds up yet. The roo is moulting and looks like he was hit with a weed whacker right at this time... poor guy. I love him though...

    Anyhow, if you were wanting CBM eggs and couldn't decide which lines to go with, here is your chance to try them both side by side and see which you like best. Eggs are $5/apiece, mix 'n match however you want. There are more bayhorsebonne eggs available than Bev Davis.

    Shipping and delivery confirmation is $11

    These
    eggs were laid by the same hens earlier in the laying cycle. The eggs you get will be a shade lighter but still quite a wonderful dark reddish brown shade.

    Your title says 'copper black/blue', where does the blue come in?

    The roo with the Bev Davis side is a blue copper roo. I don't have a pic of him yet, he is moulting and has no tailfeathers and big has the "shabby chick" look going on right now... LOL He is big and gentle and looks pretty well put together. Hope his tail grows in at the right angle!
