This is an ongoing project. These breed true. Egg color continues to need work. I out-crossed to black copper recently but have put together my lavender marans pen again until I have my black copper split to lavender birds grown out and ready to breed. You will need to take this offspring back to your darkest black copper marans to improve egg color. I do have pictures of my breeders but they may not get posted for a few weeks yet. Chicks may or may not have leg feathering at this point in the project. It's about 65% feathered to 35% not feathered.
