|Copper Black Marans|
The cockerels grow as fast as the Bresse Gauloise and the hens lay chocolate eggs. There is of course no nutritional difference between these eggs and white ones but they are very attractive.

Although I bought 20 of these Copper Black hatching eggs most of the chicks were males Herman was the best looking, the rest were reared for the pot.
Fresh eggs of any colour disappear from the retail outlet as quickly as I put them out there so more hens are needed.
