    Can anyone suggest a reputable breeder of blue/black copper marans in the wv/pa/md area?

    Whitmore Farm in Emmitsburg, MD has them, as far as I know. I have never ordered from them so I cannot attest to reputation but from what I have heard they seem to be serious.

    Edited to fix the link.

    Whitmore is a great breeder -- good people, beautiful farm, great stock, and his flocks are PASTURED, if that matters to you. For production of eggs and not so much show focused, but Will is a careful breeder. He raises the clean-legged Marans. he wrote several articles on breeding for Back Yard Poultry in the past year -- well worth chekcing out. You can order back copies from their website.

    Whitmore has a website. Unfortunately they ship 25 min, straight run. You can mix and match breeds, and pick up fewer at the farm. Worth the trip. [​IMG]
