Marans are one of a kind in the chicken world, the layers of the famous chocolate eggs! Marans are one of my all-time favorite breeds for their eggs, beautiful colors, and their friendly temperament. My Marans are Greenfire Farms line and lay nice dark eggs. They are reputed to lay the tastiest eggs of any breed of chicken. I have both blue copper and black copper marans in all my breeding pens and you will get a mixture of both colors.
