Description

The Cuckoo Marans are beautiful birds that are very similar to the old native Barred Plymouth Rock. Our Cuckoo Marans are capable of laying 310 dark brown eggs per year. Their placid nature and attractive markings make them  ideal for those with kids or new to keeping poultry!

Cuckoo Marans are often referred to as chocolate eggers because of their chocolate brown eggs which can fetch a premium price at markets throughout the country!

If you value a colourful egg basket in your kitchen or attractive birds in your garden – our Cuckoo Marans are a must have for your flock!

Our Cuckoo Marans are the result of crossing paternal fast feathering Barred Plymouth Rock stock with maternal slow feathering Rhode Island Red stock.
