    Hello to Marans keepers. I am first year Marans owner and now is the time when I have to choose my breeding rooster. I know it would be more easy to give you pictures of my two boys but I don't have a camera to do this. Could you please give me pictures or links of correct body type. I read the proposed standard but I am not sure of a few points. I would appreciate seeing a picture of the correct type because English language is not my strongest area.

    This page covers type & has diagrams.

    DEar Krys109uk, Thank you very much for sending this link. You don't know how much you have helped me. I bought my Marans from a reputable breeder and actually they are both good types but one of them has mis-colorings on his neck and I'm going to choose the boy with perfect cooper color.
    THe only problem I have to work now is the comb. But that will give me something to do!
    Thank you very much,
    VE
