if anyone has them could you posts pics and share what you know about the breed.....
Peak at the marans thread. They talk about wheatons and lots of pics.
Well, just to give you a little help, here's mine, both Blue Wheaten and normal Wheaten. . .
. . . ( PIC HEAVY )
In general, Wheaten and Blue Wheaten Marans lay a pretty good egg color; Mine pictured above are normally just a tad darker than that, but they're tapering off for the season.
They're just like normal Marans though - Calm, quiet, heavy in build which offers a great dual purpose breed, non-aggressive Roosters, cold-hardy.
I love my Wheatens, especially Blue Wheatens, because they're so beautiful and a much more rare variety than Black Coppers. Also, they rank in egg color up with Black Coppers, unlike other color varieties.
WOW, you have some really nice lookin bird there!!!!!!
please, everyone post some more pics. i'm hoping to pick up 3 wheaten hens this weekend.
These are pictures of my Wheatens from about a year ago....guess it's time for some new pictures of them.
were your hens molting at the time the pics were taken?
the reason i'm asking is because i don't see the black/dark tail feathers...... just curious...
beautiful birds either way
Yes they probably were. I know in this picture the roo looks scruffy because he was.
Katy, where did your birds originate, what lines?
I love that your hens look so "round", it makes them all the more appealing!
I got my original ones from Laura Teasdale and then a few from Bev Davis.
I order W/BW Marans and this is the roo that I got. He is a year old and still growing strong. He doesn't look like a lot of other W/BW Marans that I have seen on here so I posted these pics for your thoughts and coments.
