I've got a 10 week old French Standard Black Copper Marans cockerel that I'll be happy to give away to someone on BYC who lives in the South La./South Ms. area. Rather give him to someone who might want him for their hens rather than dinner. He's got a lot of copper, maybe you need one like that to balance out chicks from some hens with too much black? I live in the Hammond, La. area and would be willing to drive within an hours time to meet someone who might have a bit of a drive themselves.
