Dressed like French Nobility from the 17th century, the Black Copper Marans are in their full regalia from their comb to their back and iridescent tail feathers — all the way down to their feathered feet. Black Copper Marans Hens are the only French breed that have feathered feet. These gorgeous hens are the perfect addition to your backyard flock.
Did you know that Black Copper Marans Hens are named after a small community in France? Wouldn’t it be fun to practice speaking French with your very own French Hens instead of just Duolingo?
Oui. C’est ce bonne.
Though they began as game birds (which explains their fancy dress), they’ve become the royalty of the barn. They’re fancy and they know it. (They also tend to not soil their laying boxes.) We’ve sourced our champion bloodline Black Copper Marans from Greenfire Farms – the hatchery we trust the most.
“We are now pleased to offer the offspring of black copper Marans that are blended from the best breeding stock we could find: from a French national champion egg line, from a French national champion exhibition line, and from an excellent American line that was officially certified compliant with the APA standard by an APA judge. Our goal was to create a Greenfire Farms’ bloodline with the best genetics available, and we believe we succeeded”
Black Copper Marans lay gorgeous dark brown eggs that look like a chocolate egg from your Easter basket! These are much healthier for you!

When searching for backyard chickens, your family should consider this gorgeous breed. Black Copper Marans are about 6 pounds and can get as big as 6.5 pounds. They lay about 3 eggs a week. If you have three hens, you’ll get 9 eggs a week — just about the right amount of eggs to make a savory quiche.
If you’re new to backyard chickens, that’s okay. You don’t need a rooster for hens to lay eggs. This is great news for municipalities who only allow hens in your backyard flock.
