Marans Chickens

Aren't these just the coolest eggs you have ever seen ? These eggs come from the Marans Chicken. I am wanting to add a bunch of these beauties to my flock.

Above is what is called a Wheatan Maranas and it is the colour that I will soon be adding. However before I purchase them I need to build a separate hen house and run for them. I have a goal to reproduce more of these little buggers and want them to be purebred. I think that the eggs would sell well at the farmer's market.

  1. I am going to be reading about taking care of chickens over the winter and hope to get just a few chicks next spring. Not sure which yet.
