Cuckoo Maran

$2.70$3.95

Cuckoo Marans feather pattern is very much like a barred pattern like on a Barred Rock.  However, the barring or the delineation between the black and white stripes is smudged in the Cuckoo pattern.  The color effect is smokey and blurred.  Hens are much darker over all than the roosters.  The Maran breed originates from a town called Marans, France.  It is a very winter hardy breed with a docile temperament.  They tend to be more athletic, taking to foraging and free ranging more often than other breeds.  Marans lay dark brown and dark speckled eggs.  The brown egg color can vary in darkness as the hens go through their laying cycles. Vitamin K and calcium can have some limited help with keeping the dark brown egg shell color.  They are a fast growing bird and a very rare breed here in the United States.  Our Cuckoo Marans have limited/to no feathers on their legs and are a production type blood line.  These tough birds make a great addition to any backyard flock.  Marans are historically a dual-purpose bird, prized not only for their dark eggs but for their table qualities as well.
