    I am contemplating getting some black or blue marans (love those eggs!), but I wonder how they do in Pacific Northwest weather? Anyone in Seattle or Snohomish County, WA have marans?

    I have ducks, so chickens will be a new endeavor.

    The only thing I would worry about is their combs and wattles getting frostbitten- especially the roosters. They are an otherwise 'heavy' breed, so I would assume they'd be fine.
