    Wondering the best way to get a good Maran Rooster for breeding my Blue copper maran hens. Should I incubate a handful?

    Sure, you can incubate some fertile eggs and count on some of them being male. Or you could go to your state thread and ask if anyone around you has one for sale or knows of a breeder with some to sell. You could also use the buy-sell-trade section once you have 20 posts to find one.

    Good luck finding the rooster you want!

    There is a glut of roosters needing new homes. Definitely a buyers market. You can find some very good prices for even show & breeding quality. When you have your 20 posts head to the BYC Buy, sell, Trade section. I've often seen Marans and other good breed males offered.
