Cuckoo Marans Chickens

Cuckoo Marans Chickens is a fairly rare and desirable breed because of it's rich chocolate brown egg color. The Marans Chicken Breed is named for the French town of Marans in the region in which the breed originated. Originally a feather legged breed, a clean legged variety of the Cuckoo Marans was eventually developed in England by breeding it with certain French and English Breeds.

The Cuckoo Marans is a dual purpose breed that is primarily bred and raised for it's unique egg color. This heavy breed will produce on average between 150-200 eggs per year, and they can grow large enough to be used for meat as well as eggs. They are a fast growing and extremely hardy that will thrive in most climates. The feather pattern of the Cuckoo Marans is a striking and beautiful barred black and white pattern, similar to that of the Barred Plymouth Rock Chicken.

If you're looking for a rare and unique variety to the color of your eggs, you should consider adding the Cuckoo Marans to your flock. Our breeders have invested over 12 years in developing the bloodlines of this rare and prestigious chocolate egg laying chicken breed.

Chicks from eFowl and Shipping Tip October 7, 2015
Reviewer: Sharlene Beals from La Pine, OR United States  
My chicks arrived safe and sound, thank you.  One was suffering a bit, but I pulled her from the group and kept her a bit warmer since she seemed cold and weak.  Also, I used the sugar water trick and every few minutes dipped her beak in to get her to drink.  Within the day, she was revived and back with the rest of the flock.  I'd like to remind everyone that just because you don't see much in the tracking of your package doesn't mean there is a problem.  I was worried due to lack of scans by the post office, but my chicks arrived on the specified date and my post office called me at 5:30am to let me know they were here and could be picked up.  Now I know I don't have to worry during the shipping process!Overall, I would say that eFowl is a great place to purchase from and I will definitely be ordering again in the future.
