Black Copper Marans are a French Breed layer of super dark chocolate brown eggs. The breed is an easy-going breed, not flighty, a dual purpose, and good layers of dark brown eggs. The breed originate in the port town of Marans in the Southwest Region of France. They were created by crossing local feral chickens, that had derived from game chickens brought from India and Indonesia with Croad Langshang. Even though they have fighting game chickens in their bloodlines they are amazingly docile chickens and a joy to own, especially with their beautiful chocolate brown eggs.
