My secret swap pal (smitty's farm) sent me eggs as my swap gift I ended up with 2 roos, (one was a mix) and 3 pullets, beautiful Cuckoo Marans. They are getting close to laying now, and I've not been able to spend much time getting to know them, but the only info I've seen on Marans is they lay dark eggs and they are good foragers. Why isn't there more info? Are they rare? What can you tell me about Marans? I can tell you that one is a real tease. She sneaks out of the coop just as I go in to shut them in at night, every single night! Little snot!
