    There is a specific Marans thread on this board that might be a better place to post this, since you're looking for the Marans experts and it's an important decision. Me--I haven't a clue, sorry.

    No way! BYCers are great, and the breed folks want to help people breed better Marans. No one want to see lots of poorly bred birds around. I've posted a question or two over there and I'm a total Marans newbie, and they were helpful. Give them a try--I bet they'll be thrilled that a newcomer to the breed is trying to do it right.
