    I would like some nice Marans, but I want chicks, not eggs. I am in Wisconsin.

    Nevermind - I found on Homesteading Today that Ideal dropships for darkeggs.com. I'm just going to order all my birds from Sandhill and leave it at that. Thanks for everyones input (on this thread and the one I posted in General Discussion).

    tricia, Marans with the single comb would be a concern of mine here.
    Sounds like you have had them before, just a thought. Good luck.

    I'm with you tricia. All of my marans are single combed. I didn't know they has otherwise. Could be they are thinking about a large single comb versus a small peacomb and the cold weather and the threat of frostbite?I got my original birds from Ideal and got some pretty good birds. The egg color is not the darkest, but that is to be understood. I am working on my second generation and intend to work really hard on improving the egg color. They are still way darker than most brown eggs.
