Cuckoo Marans

is a breed of chicken originating in France. It is a medium breed compared to others, popular for poultry shows and is a dual purpose fowl known both for its extremely dark eggs as well as for its very fine meat qualities.

Characteristics:

Marans are generally quiet and docile; but they are quite active, taking well to free ranging in rough terrain and are also tough and disease-resistant. They were originally bred in the marshy areas of France and can cope with damper conditions.  Marans are an historically dual-purpose bird, prized not only for their dark eggs but for their table qualities as well.

Eggs:

Marans lay around 150 dark brown eggs each year. [Picture shown is only an example.  Dark Egg color vairies]
