    Hi All,

    I live in Minneapolis city proper and am allowed 5 hens by the city rules. So in the interest of making a nice diverse little flock of pet egg layers I would love to find a true BC Marans that lays real dark eggs. If anyone can refer me to a good Minnesota breeder I would really appreciate it.

    I am really looking for a young pullet instead of a chick, I just don't have the time to raise a baby bird even though I would love to raise chicks.

    I thought about ordering from out of state but have heard to many horror stories about traumatized birds and birds being injured in shipping.

    Thanks!

    Bobby Kosak from Morgan MN raises nice marans. He used to show until old age and health slowed him down. His number should be in the directory or PM me for it.
