Looking to add some nice dark chocolate brown eggs to your basket?

Our Marans line came directly from Greenfire Farms A line (French National Egg Champion) in 2017. This rare breed of Marans were directly imported from National Champion French bloodlines. Our beautiful hens produce gorgous dark chocolate brown FBCM eggs. They range from 6-8 on the Marans color chart.

I’ve been working on improving the egg color in this line for 5 years now. It has been a fun project to work on.

This breed has beautiful feathered legs. The shanks and feet should be slate or pink. Soles of the feet are white as is the skin of the bird. The Black Copper plumage must be red with no mahogany or yellow tones. The male should have a black breast with minimal spotting on his chest.

*Chicks are sold as straight run.

*Fertility is checked weekly and is excellent!

We will begin filling local chick orders in March. It will be safe for us to start shipping out chicks beginning of April weather permitting. We usually have a wait list for chicks.

We are no longer offering BCM hatching eggs on a regular basis. We will only post hatching eggs for sale if we have extras available.

I’ll post them on our Facebook Page and Instagram, so make sure you are following along with us. Once I post them, they will go quickly!

~3 chick minimum for pick up orders. You can mix and match the different breeds we carry.

~8 chick minimum for shipping orders.

~Shipping cost is a flat $75.00.

Chicks are sent along on their journey with a nest pad in their box to keep the babies from sliding around during transit. A heat pack is included to help keep them warm. Gro Gel is provided to give our chicks immediate nutrition and hydration.

Neon stickers are added on the boxes to remind USPS that they are delivering precious little ones to their néw destinations.
