Blue copper cockerel in the back is a Brahman body type .very tall and wide . marans from Avgen line throw this type of marans .they should be bred out .
we looking for medium legs not too tall neither short . stocky thick and long body type NOT tail .

best dark eggs from yesterday .7/8 on the color chart .
speckle one is gorgeous .all 4 from Avgen cross pullets .
now I need to trap those pullets responsible for this stunning work .
well pleased .took me years of breeding and buying fertile eggs to get those type .worth the effort for sure .
now I have a type .dark egg color and complete body pattern . only what I need is time to breed them well and establish them into true breeding lines .
the party just started my friends , a lot work ahead of me .

thank you .
looking forward to work with them . lot different combination to produce many lines .some will be pullets line others will be cockerels lines .it is the only true way to breed marans , balancing .the body type .the body pattern and the dark eggs .without loosing the farm type hen qualities like .resistance ,functional .double purpose .

I will start breeding cockerels from this lines with my oldest hens .they re-start laying this week .
pullets I will wait till the end of the year . I like the chicks that hatch around Xmas . plus they will be old to breed from 1 year old .

agree with you .the spotted ones are the best .
next year you will have those type of marans in your place pumping those type of eggs for you .
cuckoos I m not far one generation away to get they eggs that dark .
Birchen I m very far away .I culled all last ear birchen I hatched from eggs from other peoples . only kept one cockerel from my line .lot time and work is needed to get them going .
Solid Black one generation away .they do lay #6 oval egg ,they need the dark spot on them . I have the method to make them lay those type of eggs ,need to make one more out cross .
many more varieties need my attention .Wheaten /Black tail buff / Red ./ White and pyle.

looking forward hatching those eggs in the future and see a new improved generation .

this is a pullet responsible for the dark eggs . managed to catch her laying 2 days ago . she has it all .body type .body mass .large dark eggs .what missing is a hackle marking marking . I m not interested in that .no more Blue copper for me .they produce high cull . i will breed her to a Solid Black rooster Black Mamba { his daughter lay nice large oval dark eggs } to produce solid Black and solid Blue .
she is Sired by Avgen import Blue copper Rooster over Liza s Blue hen .
name her Black Angel . she will be my foundation hens for a Solid Black/Blue line .
well happy now my solid black marans project is coming along well and fast . all my pullets for this project are big ,correct body type plus all lay dark eggs #6 /#7 and #8.
have 2 solid Black pullet BM daughters plus they Dams Shiva and Ravendale .
have 2 Silver cuckoo pullets Arnold daughters .
1 Blue and Black Avgen x Liza s line .
cockerels I have .
Black Mamba the Sire .and 4 of his sons .only going to use a best one .Black Mamba junior .
1 Blue dark silver cuckoo .big boy with a correct body type . he will produce half cuckoos and half solid .

well pleased .

I think Blue look better as solid Blue not as copper Blue .
