    I am a small backyard breeder with wheaten, blue wheaten splash, white, blue copper and golden cuckoo marans.I would enjoy chatting with other Maran breeders. My winter flock is 13 birds due to my fall "down sizing".

    You could try posting under the Maran's thread post #1 .

    Also, try searching for Maran breed to find other threads?


    I have no experience with any breeds except BO and BR. But think the Marans , or some of them, lay those really chocolate eggs? Are they docile and friendly? Or are they somewhat flighty?
