    There is more info here:

    and at the moment I know of only ONE person in my Marans Chicken Club that is breeding them, and here is some info that someone there posted:

    heres what the french say about the bantams:

    Same standard and varieties as for the larger ones.
    Half the size of the larger ones.
    RingsĀ’ diameter: - cock: 16 millimetres; hen : 14 millimetres
    Eggs to be hatched: 40 grams, dark-brown shell.
    Cock: 1.1 kilo
    Hen : 0.9 kilo

    I will try to find my picture and post it.

    "Bantam" Black Copper Marans is what I was asking about. I went to the web site above but wasn't able to find out who has them. Is anyone even selling them?
    If so, who, what, when, where?

    Mark is the list member who has the bantam black coppers, I think.

    Do they lay DARK eggs?

    I remember having some Barnvelder Bantams and they only laid tinted eggs...what a disspointed girl I was and sold them. I learned alot as well.
