Okay, neat!So Lavender Marans are lavender or "self blue in color and are not related to the blue color of Blue Copper Marans. They should be a very uniform silvery grey color like other lavender colored birds.
Their foundation stock is from BCM mostly. Lavender Orpingtons were used to bring in the lavender color, then many generations of breeding back to maintain the proper Marans appearance and proper egg color.
I have never heard of Lavender Marans before today then! They're really pretty, though!
Also, I love your signature! It's so true!
