Hatch #8 was our last incubated hatch for awhile. It was a last effort to get a few more Marans. Last year we sold all the chicks we hatched, which meant we didn’t have any left over for ourselves. This year we hatched many more & will keep a few.
The odds when breeding a Blue Marans with a Black are that you will get a 50% mix of Blues and Black Marans. For the majority of our hatches, I’d guess that’s close to accurate. This hatch, though, we got about 75% black & 25% blue.
