Black Copper Marans Roosters - $5 (New Market VA)

Four black copper marans roosters for sale - $5 each for pickup only. They were born the first of May in my incubator from dark brown eggs that I received from Barnyard Beauties out of Berryville. She was breeding for darker colored eggs over SOP. Their offspring should produce dark eggs and would be great for making easter eggers if you want a colorful egg basket. I am offering these because I have too many roosters. They are the feathered-leg variety which is sometimes called "French". (French or English refers to the Standard used, not the birds themselves unless they were imported directly from France.)

Although they are skittish in general, they have shown zero aggressive tendencies towards me. They have been raised eating organic soy-free feed from New Country Organics, with fermented feed in the mornings to boost immunity.

They have been raised together and for the most part, unless a female is involved, they get along just fine. They are quick to alert to danger or other events. If you have a large flock and need multiple roosters to keep watch and make dark egg offspring, perhaps these are your guys.

Although none of them likes being held or caught, they are relatively well behaved. They will come up for treats and gently take them out of my hand and they dutifully put themselves to bed every evening. To this point, they've been enjoying the bachelor life but they wouldn't mind having some girls of their own.
