|Did you know that Marans were imported from the seaport
village of Marans, France?
These layers of stunning dark red eggs began crossing the
Atlantic with servicemen to the Americas after the Second
World War. The popularity of the bird in France resulted in
flocks throughout England, Belgium, Switzerland,
Australia and Canada.
Consumers might know the clean-legged “English type” of
the Marans breed, but the American Poultry Association
(APA)standard adheres to the original French standard,
calling for lightly feathered shanks and outer toes.
Best known for their large, russet brown eggs, you will
find the focus of Marans Unlimited on egg color, a large
table egg size, and a well-balanced medium sized bird.
Our birds are bred to the APA and Marans Chicken Club
USA standards, and many of the offspring derived from
our lines are producing consistent winners here in Texas
and throughout the nation.

Marans Unlimited line, Beverly Robertson and
