If you’re looking for “chocolate” colored eggs, then these Marans are a must have. Imported from the Czech Republic, this cross between the lovely Black Copper Marans and competent Barred Rocks will give you a steady output of these stunningly dark eggs.

This breed was developed to produce extra large eggs with very dark brown shells (chocolate eggs) more efficiently than most very dark egg producers which tend to have low laying numbers and high appetites.
