French Wheaten Marans

Wheaten Marans Hen

French Wheaten Marans are a very pretty breed of bird and they will look great in your garden.

Like the Copper Marans, they have lightly feathered feet, so its advisable to keep them on grass or woodchips and avoid mud.  These fluffy, fawn and brown birds are quite industrious and we have found them to be hardy too.  Even in wet and snowy conditions they're still quite active, although they don't look their best in that kind of weather - but who does!

Wheaten Marans also produce a wonderful dark terracotta egg and, like their copper friends, it has a hard shell, so their chicks have to be tough to get a good start in life.

If you are looking for a nice pretty bird, you ought to consider the French Wheaten Marans.
