Our Maran Cuivree hens are also known as: Copper Maran/ Burford Brown/ Suffolk Noir/ Starlight
Maran Cuivree hens have black body feathers with copper chest feathers. They lay fantastic dark brown eggs so you can always identify which is hers! They are beautiful hens, often similar in appearance to the Rhode Rock. The most apparent difference in appearance between these two breeds is the colour of the legs- a Maran will have dark silver-blue legs and the Rhode Rock will have pale yellow legs. The amount of copper markings will vary from hen to hen within the breed but often they have beautiful lacing on their feathers and a purple or green iridescent sheen across their backs.
Maran Cuivree hybrids will reward her owner with approximately 240-260 lovely dark brown eggs per year.
Our Maran Cuivree hens are £16 each
