Golden Cuckoo Marans are a very rare feather pattern of Marans Chickens. Marans are well known for their dark brown eggs and the Golden Cuckoos will not disappoint. The Golden Cuckoo looks similar to the regular Cuckoo Marans, but has showy Golden bars against white on their head, back and hackle feathers. A desirable trait with this variety is that the females tend to be darker than the males. This can make them easier to sex upon hatching. Our breeders contain both feather and non-feather legged birds, your chicks could be either type.
Average mature weight: roosters 7 lbs., hens 5 1/2 lbs.
** Due to the rarity of this breed, a maximum of 15 can be ordered at a time.
