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.
