About Copper Black Marans


These French Copper Black Marans have been selectively bred for their utility qualities

and more specifically for egg colour and size. They are an ideal breed for keeping in your back garden, being exceptionally docile and calm. Through my very careful & selective breeding these hens are laying amongst the the largest and darkest brown eggs you will come across. The egg size/colour will of course vary, and cannot be guaranteed. You can expect them to keep laying for at least five to eight years.

The egg size on average is in the large/extra large category, weighing between 65g and 78g.

For reference, standard supermarket egg sizes are:

Small: under 53g        Medium: 53-63g        Large: 63-73g         X large: over 73g
