    I'm new to marans but I really love my BCM roo and I am in it to better the breed. I am looking for some critiques so I can keep my eyes on getting a better roo along the way. I have eggs in the incubator now so possibly one of his offspring will replace him.
    Thanks!

    Here you go:
    Try this website. Little Peddler Marans, Bred to the French Standard.
    http://sd2cx1.webring.org/l/rd?ring=poultry;id=1;url=http://littlepeddler.webs.com/ Scroll down the page and there is an illustration of how to compare your roo to the Standard.
    Now click on "Photo Gallery" on the main page. Take a look at the
    "Heavensent Ranch" BCM rooster pic. It is the second pic down on the right hand column. This is a very high class Marans roo. Compare the birds you see thrroughout the pages of the Little Peddler's site with your boy.
    Best Regards,
    Karen in western PA
