The Marans is a French breed that lays very deep chocolate brown eggs. Marans make great pets, as they are friendly and good foragers. While they are not prolific egg layers, you will be delighted at the chocolate colored eggs knowing they were well worth the wait. Keepers of this breed report the Marans roosters being perfect gentlemen with their hens and taking good care of them.
