Wheaten Marans Chickens are particularly striking. The roosters are brilliantly colored - they are classic roosters with the single tall red comb and coloring that resemble so many kitchen and farm decorations. Hens are less striking, with subtle yet complex patterning. Many Wheaten Marans Chickens have feathering up the outside of their legs. Beyond being beautiful additions to the farm flock, Wheaten Marans Chickens will also add gorgeous dark eggs to your egg cartons.

Marans Chickens are an old French breed that originated in the cold and damp coastal town of Marans, France. They were the result of breedings - haphazard at first - between wild swamp hens and English game birds that escaped from docked ships. These diverse breedings led to the exciting variety of colors that the Marans breed shows today. The breed has fluctuated in popularity over the years but recently has been a favorite of people searching for layers of dark brown eggs to spice up their egg cartons. In 2011, Wheaten Marans Chickens were officially recognized by the APA at the Crossroads Show in Indianapolis, Indiana.
