Marans are best known for their large, russet brown eggs. This is a defining characteristic of the Marans breed. Marans are a medium-sized bird with lightly feathered legs and are a hardy, disease-resistant breed that likes to free range and and can cope with damper conditions.
There are 3 recognized colors in the APA-American Poultry Association Standard: Black Copper, Wheaten and White.
We breed all 3 varieties with many Champion Continental wins with our Black Coppers and Whites. Black Copper Marans were our original breed that we started TwoBitts Farm with in 2012.
