Valley Hatchery is excited to introduce the enchanting French Black Copper Marans, a breed that exudes a mystical charm and is a prized rarity in the United States. This breed, recognized by the American Standard of Perfection in 2011, is a jewel among poultry, often sought after but seldom found in American hatcheries. These chickens are celebrated for their calm, friendly, and serene nature, making them an ideal choice for beginners in poultry rearing. They exhibit a remarkable resilience to various climates, thriving in both mild conditions and tolerating heat and cold effectively.

The French Black Copper Marans are prolific layers, with each hen producing over 200 large, dark brown eggs annually. These eggs, ranging from a light red to light chocolate bloom color, are highly coveted by chefs and farmers for their exceptional quality. The breeding flock at Valley Hatchery produces eggs with a color spectrum between four and eight on the Marans egg color chart, indicating their premium grade.

In terms of appearance, these chickens are striking. The overall body color is a deep black, with the head and neck adorned with copper hues. The roosters, in particular, showcase magnificent saddle feathers. They reach a robust size, with roosters weighing approximately 8 pounds and hens around 6.5 pounds. These birds boast a typical lifespan of about 8 years, though some may live longer, showcasing their hardiness.

At Valley Hatchery, we take pride in offering both common and uncommon day-old chicks, ensuring each arrives healthy and happy with our live-arrival guarantee. Given the limited availability of the French Black Copper Marans, we encourage enthusiasts to seize the opportunity to own this rare breed.

Please note, while our team strives for precision in gender sexing across our breeds, achieving a 90% accuracy on average, the French Black Copper Marans pose a more challenging task. For this breed, we offer a 75% accuracy guarantee in gender determination, maintaining our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.
