The rich chestnut color of the French Black Tailed Red Marans is similar to that of the New Hampshire breed. One major difference between the two is that French Marans have a few feathers on their legs. Another is that Marans eggs have some of the darkest chocolate brown shells you’ll ever see.
Be aware that about one-third of these chickens may have fused and/or web toes. And about one-third of the roosters may grow excessively large combs.
Despite these potential defects, the French Black Tailed Red Marans is an outstanding dual-purpose chicken. If you are looking for a breed that is rare and difficult to find, this is it. Chickens for Backyards also offers French Marans in several other color varieties.
