    Santa brought me four Marans for Christmas. They are now about 4 weeks old. Do you see any potential roos?

    Poultry Haven - - - these are the babies I got from you. I am posting all the pics of my chicks from that day.

    Look for the posting for Round 2 & 3, for the ones I picked up in the Daytona area.

    You can see that the 3 up front look like they are gonna be blues, but the one in the back left is a BLACK.

    Sorry, put I couldn't get to stand in the pictures tonight [​IMG]

    Thanks for posting your pics. Your combs are much pinker than mine.

    Quote:The comb that he has is a Bright red! I couldnt get it n the picture though. The color is way off, i was just showing how big the comb was. I hope you dont have 3 boys, maybe the girls are just maturing a lot faster?

    Poultry Haven - - - Judging my your pics - I got the GIRLS - YEA ! [​IMG]
    Tiramasu has ever so slight color showing and the other three combs - - - no red color at all!

    I got to see some Maran eggs [​IMG] at the show in Lake City today.
    They were 5 and 6's on the French chart. Oh so dark. I can't wait for these girls to start laying and show me what they have for eggs.

    Do you have any idea how dark the eggs were that these girls came from - - - email or pm me if you want too.

    There were no MARANS at the show today. There was a MARAN rooster outside for sale. [​IMG]
    The Maran club was there - - - but no chicks or chickens. [​IMG]
