A bit off-topic related technical stuff. :P

I have now linked Gallery photos to this thread . Photos from a couple of members originate off-site. Some of the gallery ones are still in member galleries and not in the Marans breed category. I did not copy them to Marans , keeping in mind this comment from Jocler a week ago:

Quote:
Cackles, yes these are in development. They should not be called marans though as the egg also has to be a 4 before that so they are simply crossbreeds until they reach the standard, egg colour and also be accepted by the Marans Club..

However, other pics were uploaded to Marans (http://gallery.backyardpoultry.com/show ... hp?cat=528) by some members. :wink:


Given the title of this thread I'm taking the liberty of also now attaching the pdf file whose link was given in the first post. :) (Ignore that it says not downloaded yet as this copy of the original went via my PC.)

So in that article, it mentions that OEG were thought to be used as a cross along with other breeds, to recreate other/new colours, can you use OEG?

You can use anything you like, but you will need to get back to type & egg colour.
Many OEG would also give you the added problems of dark and/or yellow legs.

:help: Hi there - I know this is an old thread, but I am hoping it is the right one for Marans. :)

A while ago I read an interesting article titled

Some thoughts on the hatchability of Dark Brown Marans eggs

I did save the link, but the page address must have changed. Has anyone any ideas how I might get back to it. I had a feeling it might have been written by Blackdotte from this site, but can't be certain

Many thanks if anyone knows :)

It was originally written by Tim Daniels and appears to have been written directly to the poultrykeeper.com website. The original URL seems to have been http://poultrykeeper.com/marans/the-marans/some-thoughts-on-hatchability-of-dark-brown-marans-eggs.html, and I'm trying to find a cached version of this. I did find a cache of the page that references the article, at *broken link removed*.

According to their error page:

Quote:
We have just updated the site, re-writing it from scratch and many of the links are still wrong in the search engines and even on the site.


I'm trying to do a search for "Marans" on the poultrykeeper.com website but my 'net connection is really appalling currently and it's going to take hours. Try this link: http://poultrykeeper.com/search/most-popular?searchphrase=exact&searchword=marans - and see if you can find it.

edit: nope, found the answer - appears the owner of the site forgot to import it across when he upgraded! http://poultrykeeperforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6448&start=10

Keep checking back for it ...

edit2: found it via the wayback machine! Can be seen here: http://web.archive.org/web/20110603011612/http://poultrykeeper.com/marans/the-marans/some-thoughts-on-hatchability-of-dark-brown-marans-eggs.html

Should probably let poultrykeeper.com know it's there :)
