The Cuckoo Maran is a rare breed that adapts well to confinement. Marans are known best for their distinctive chocolate brown egg. They resemble a Barred Plymouth Rock except their bars are not as perfect and their colors are not as distinct. Marans lay the darkest eggs of any breed and are a nice dual-purpose bird. Our Cuckoo Marans are clean legged.
Note: Between April 1st and October 1st, Mt. Healthy Hatcheries has a minimum shipping requirement of 3 birds (instead of the usual 10). If you order 3 chicks to ship outside of April 1st - October 1st, the order may be delayed or shipped with cockerels for warmth, as decided by Mt. Healthy Hatcheries.
Cuckoo Maran produces 200 Dark Brown eggs per year.
Chickens require a minimum quantity of 3 to ship, you may mix breeds of the same species.
Please understand every effort will be made to accommodate the ship date requested. If for some reason this is not possible you will be notified, and we will book for the next available date.
