    I've got a combo of wheatens/blue wheatens, black/blue coppers, 1 blue and 1 birchen.
    (umm, I told her I would take whatever she would send me [​IMG] )
    NOW whatam I going to do to get these chicks thru the winter?! [​IMG]
    My coop heating bill is going to be thru the roof!
    Oh well...it will be worth it. [​IMG]

    Thank you all!
    I'm VERY happy to finally get some Marans and getting them from Bev makes it even more exciting! [​IMG]

    The single blue will probably be for sale soon since I don't plan on getting more blues and I may have an extra wheaten (or blue wheaten) cockerel or two for sale but I don't think I will sell anything until I can make my selections next Spring.

    I'm clueless...what do Marans chicks, started youngsters and adults sell for?

    WOW THAT IS GREAT EGG COLOR !!!! If it turns out I can keep a blue copper marans rooster with my hens would you be interested in egg trades. Mine are Wade Jeane and Mari Krebs lines. They are from very dark eggs. I love the blue wheaten and wheaten color in ameraucana and can't wait to see what its like in marans.

    Good luck MARANS ROCK !!! BEV ROCKS !!!
