    I don't have any of the blacks, but I've got the cuckoo marans and a couple of blue marans pullets and a black copper roo. Mine are nice gentle birds and fairly good layers although after their first year mine have had a tendency to go broody alot. I love their dark colored eggs.

    what exactly do you want to know? I have marans
    black copper
    golden cuckoo

    If you are just looking to get into them for the $$ you can get for the eggs, I would not recommend it. Serious marans breeders love the birds and work to improve the breed and egg color more than anything else.

    I am happy to answer your questions. My phone number is on my web site
