Dark chocolate colored eggs amidst light brown and mint green chicken eggs. Love my Marans !
This little chick is the result of a breeding between my Black Copper Marans rooster and an Americana hen.
Both of these chicks are my Marans & Americana cross eggs hatched out in an incubator by my grandchildren. These chicks are definitely hardy, thrifty, and survivors .
The granddaughter in charge of incubator monitoring and follow-up care of the chicks named them Albert Cheepers McNugget featherweight Esquire the First & Prudence.
With names like that I dare not slack on caring for them !
Albert & Prudence. ( Hope one really is a rooster and the other a hen. )
