The Cuckoo Marans is the black and white barred version of the Marans, a breed of chicken originally from the port of Marans in West France. It’s a dual purpose bird, and is most famous for the gorgeous dark brown eggs they produce! Like the Sussex, they’re a quiet and gentle breed, and are tough, hardy birds – not shying away from a good free range opportunity if given it. They are perfect first-time birds for families new to keeping chickens, and are happy to plod around a garden.
