Some of the darkest eggs in North America can be found in the nest boxes of Texas Marans. My flock is bred to the APA and Marans Chicken Club USA standards. Consumers might know the clean-legged “English type” of the Marans breed, but the American standard adheres to the original French standard calling for lightly feathered shanks and outer toes. Best known for their large, russet brown eggs, you will find the focus of Texas Marans on egg color, large table egg size, and a well-balanced medium sized bird bred to the standard will provide you with handsome, feather-legged birds that lay beautifully dark russet eggs. Your Texas Marans will be the envy of your neighbors and poultry fanciers alike.
Beverley "Bev" Davis remains a major force in the breed and the refined Marans breed we know today. Her work centers on breeding the best poultry possible. Lines have previously been limited in the USA and Beverly has spent years working with limited genetic material in developing the breadth of plumage colors avaielable in the breed. Along the journey to building quality lines of Marans matching the French Standard, she annually raises hundreds of chicks to the point of lay in search of proper type and the pullets ability to produce high quality egg shell pigment over time, not just once or occasionally.
