    Do a search either for Black Copper Marans or for the Black Copper King (author search). Mr. Jesse is super nice and his birds are out of this world! They are the real deal. He's in Franklin, GA, but has recently begun shipping across the U.S. He does prefer to sell day olds, but he'll sell you some eggs if you want. I bought 5 day olds from him about 5 weeks ago, and I'm tickled pink. Their leg feathering is extraordinary and they're so healthy I can't keep up with them. None of my other birds matured as fast. Make sure you have lots of meal worms on hand, it seems to be the only treat they're interested in.

    I know some people do not breed for egg color....They try and pass off non-quality eggs for BC Marans, or at least that is what I have heard

    They are real French Marans with feathered legs and dark brown eggs. When I picked up my chicks he showed me the eggs, they're beautiful.
    I meant for you to search this site. I don't think he does ebay. Just find his handle and PM him or email him. I don't think he logs on every day, so be patient.
