    Here is the site http://www.chickens-chickens.com/chicken-breed/maran-chickens.html
    and
    this is just a quote from it
    Maran Chickens
    -
    breeder, breeders

    These birds are very popular as family pets for their excellent talking abilities and friendly nature. Many species of these parrots are large and brilliant in many respects, but there also exist mini parrots. They are usually bright red with yellow, white and blue spots. To obtain purebred maran chickens, find the most reliable breeder among many breeders.

    Never knew they were good talkers. . . [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Looks like a really bad cut & paste job to me! Weird! And someone also needs to tell them it's Marans, not Maran with no "s".

    Ooh, I need to get me one of those talking chickens! I could teach it to say "Farm fresh eggs! Yum Yum!" How cool would that be?

    At the risk of offending, some of the "information" found on the internet, including this site is a little scary.

    Quote:It is true, anyone on the internet can put up what ever they want. It is always a good practice when googling stuff and searching on the internet, even on here, to be a bit skeptic, check for references and seek information from multiple sources. Then once you decide on something, think though it before dong the first thing you see/hear/read.

    You mean if i get a "Maran" it isn't going to talk. . . darn it!

    I just thought this in particular was kind of funny.

    I think someone got Marans and Macaws mixed up. [​IMG]


    I sure hope my Marans starts to talk! It would be pretty cool. [​IMG]

    Oh, yeah, I just had a conversation with a Marans hen. You know what she said? "Marans can't talk. BOK!"
