maran hens lay chocolate eggs fertile hatchng eggs for sale ship shipped mailed deliveredThe famous “chocolate” colored egg layers are rated 6-7 on the Marans of America color chart here at Hobbit Hill Hatchery after five long years of selective breeding for color improvement. The little chicks are white bellied but will turn black as they feather out. Many of the hens have shimmering emerald and copper coloring, while others are a flat black.

Maran hens here on Hobbit Hill become broody in early spring and make excellent mothers. They have no fear and protect their little ones at all costs. Last year we had one that wanted nothing more than to sit on every egg in the henhouse. We had to lock her out!

Easter Egger Chicks $8 each

 black ameraucana emerald green feathers blue egg gene rooster easter egger 

These sweetheart chickens lay a variety of dusty rose, baby blue, light blue, pale green, aqua and sage eggs. Roosters are just as sweet as the hens and I’ve never had one give me a hard time. The Easter Egger above with the white hackles and coppery brown wing is a rooster, tenderly caring for a chick when escaped its mother’s nest. They range greatly in color and tend to be mid-sized.

We create our first generation”F1″ line by crossing Blue, Black and Splash Ameraucanas with a wide variety of light brown egg layers. Our second generation “F2” line is created by a Black Ameraucana rooster over an “F1” hen. Both will be mixed to offer the best variety of fun pastel shade eggs for your backyard flock.
