Look carefully when you go to invest in your new flock members. Never buy "Marans" without verification that the flock can produce at least #4 eggs on the Marans Club USA color chart.
The passionate poultry breeders creating the Marans Unlimited line, Beverly Robertson and Sandy Siegfried, are members and officers of the Marans Chicken Club USA.
We are a small poultry farm and are striving to produce show quality birds that produce dark eggs. Some of my birds are from the Bev Davis line, and I am adding new birds from her line. Marans Unlimited is a member of the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) and we are certified Texas Pullorum-Typhoid clean.
Did you know that Marans were imported from the seaport village of Marans, France?
Some of the darkest eggs in North America can be found in the nest boxes of Beverley Davis in Florida. We love her birds and adore her eggs! Bev’s Marans are bred to the APA and Marans Chicken Club USA standards, and the eggs her birds lay are dark! Beverly's vast knowledge of the breed and genetics has created a successful line of Marans. Offspring derived from her lines are producing consistent winners here in Texas and throughout the nation.
These layers of stunning dark red eggs began crossing the Atlantic with servicemen to the Americas after the Second World War. The popularity of the bird in France resulted in flocks throughout England, Belgium, Switzerland, Australia and Canada. Consumers might know the clean-legged “English type” of the Marans breed, but the American standard adheres to the original French standard calling for lightly feathered shanks and outer toes. Best known for their large, russet brown eggs, you will find the focus of Marans Unlimited on egg color, a large table egg size, and a well-balanced medium sized bird bred to the standard will provide you with handsome, feather-legged birds that lay beautifully dark russet eggs. Your Marans from Marans Unlimited will be the envy of your neighbors and poultry fanciers alike.
