I had decided to go with Marans, and when I went to the SW Ohio swap yesterday, there were some there. My lord they're giants!! I knew they were big, but seeing them in person was something else! So I bought a pair of itty-bitty Bantams, while I rethink my coop idea. The Marans didn't have single combs, non of them had much of a comb at all really. I recall them as having a nice big single comb. Do some breeders remove them or something? Or is there another comb type sometimes seen in the breed? They didn't even have enough to make a pea comb. I was thinking my old dog house would hold 7. Not Marans! Their heads would bump the ceiling! So I'd have to do another building for them, and save the dog house for itty-bittys, who can even roost inside. Also need to allow more run space, even for only 7 Marans. The seller had Blue, Speckled, and Black/Copper. Not a one of them with a comb... weird.
