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.

Horrible experience will never order again!!!! February 11, 2016
Reviewer: Allison Aday from Gibsonville, NC United States  
I placed and order online for 25 chicks (15 Australorps and 10 Marans).  The only positive thing I can say is that they were shipped on time.  I only received 20 chicks, when I called customer service I was told I would receive a credit for the missing chicks, I have not.  I am a very experienced poultry raiser (I raise 800-1200 chickens a year on my small farm) I have never had the losses like I have had with these chicks of the 20 that actually arrived only 7 made it past 24 hours.  I have left multiple phone messages with eFowl, they have yet to contact me.

Hi Allison,

Thank you for your note.  Sorry for all the trouble you've had.  It looks like we've been in touch over the past few days via email, and you opted for a store credit for the lost / shorted chicks, which we've issued.  To use that credit, simply login online and it will be automatically applied towards any new order.  If you would prefer a refund as you do not want to order from us again, that is fine, we can certainly change the credit to a refund.  Simply contact us as Service@eFowl.com if you would prefer that.  ~Austin, CSR
