    this is one of my favorite types of Marans, because they are so rare and unique. I order my hen from MyPetChivken.com, and I am well ease with her. She gives me a huge Chocolate brown egg, and is so very friendly . Does anyone know if she will do ok with my frizzle Roos?

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    As long as there is not a huge difference in size, I can't imagine why she might not get along or visa versa. If you have too many roos however, they can mate her to death. So be careful with this. The proper ratio of rooster to hen is 1 to 8 to 10.

    I am glad you are enjoying your Blue Cooper Maran! Beautiful birds that lay gorgeous eggs!

    Make yourself at home here and if you have any questions, feel free to ask around the forums. Welcome to our flock!

    She probably will be ok since she is the maran. If you were adding a frizzle to a flock of marans, that is when things would get ugly.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join our flock. X2 on TwoCrow's advice. I love the chocolate eggs of the Marans. In my personal opinion, they are the prettiest eggs in the chicken world. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
