thank you my friend .
I m trying really hard to get those marans chooks going .they need so much work to fix all the good traits in and to breed the faults out .
the way I see it is .the marans breed is going soo far from it original SOP in this country . I need help .

moved last night 230 good eggs out of 278 to the hatcher .
Don eggs where good only 5 infertile .some wheaten soon .only variety I haven t hatched this season .manage to hatch all the other varieties .

I m expecting to hatch about 600/700 chicks this season almost there 3 more hatch and I m done before Xmas .

last week chicks .9 days old .healthy and feathering quick . different pairing will give different result .the roosters used to sire those chicks where early feathering type .so they chicks most of them are feathering early and fast . I like it .

here the marans varieties I manage to hatch this year since I restarted working with them .
Solid Black . still not pure yet ,they are split Black copper .large dark eggs long pointed type .
Black coppers many different lines and combination .
Black copper X Black copper = BC
Black copper X Blue copper = BLC and BC
Splash X Blue copper = BL .SP and BC
Splash X Black copper = Blue Copper

Dominant White = from 2 different line and 3 combination
Stallone X his best daughter = line breeding to get double DI gene .solid White .silver based
Dark Silver cuckoo X Dominant white hens { half sibling line breeding } to test for any genetic recessive defect ,silver based
Black Tail Buff X Dominant white Unicorn line = this line is Golden based

Wheaten = 2 different lines

Black/Blue Tail Buff .Working project .only have roosters 5 of them no hens . so I m crossing them to my best marans dark egg layer hens ,regardless of what variety . hatching many different combination ,so I can work with in the future .only hatching from very dark eggs , in 2 years time I should have a pure Red Marans variety .and a Blue/Black tail too .

Silver cuckoos = 3 different lines .
line A = my old line X to Avgen import roosters = big chicks most of them with clear legs .
line B = from stillone .Dark french type .big and well feathered .
Cry wolf line = smaller chicks but proper hackle marking .and feathered legs

Golden Salmon Black /Blue ,one line I m crossing it to other line to add few traits to it and strengthen it .

I m not going breed wheaten variety this time .I ll be using those chicks when they are fully mature to breed them with Black Tail Buff .and Red Marans roosters .

the stock I managed to gether this time is of the highest quality .correct body type ,big chooks . good combs .lovely dark and correct shape eggs . well coloured orange eyes .
what I need to do is to breed each variety pure and line bred .so I can have as many line in each variety to work with and avoid bad breeding practrice .
those are the varieties I ll be focussing on =
1- Solid Black and solid Blue
2- Dominant white .
3= Black copper /Blue coppers /Splash copper
4- Birchens ,Black and Blues
5- Silver Cuckoo/ Dark cuckoo and Golden cuckoos
6- black tail red /Blue tail red
8- Columbian black and Blues
9 Silver Salmon
10 Recessive white
11- Red Pyle

have them all just need to breed them true and pure .a lot of work and money going to this project .
