Our Wheaten Marans are definitely contenders for my favorite birds on the farm. Gentle, calm, and friendly, these big-bodied beauties take everything in stride. Their heavily feathered legs add a touch of fun to what is otherwise a very noble looking bird.
Our Blue Wheaten Marans come from show quality lines (courtesy of Windy Hill Marans). I breed for Standard of Perfection and temperament first and foremost, selecting for darker eggs where I can. I have found our wheatens to be especially friendly and easygoing, with some being downright cuddly. They are by far my favorite flock to hang out with after a long day on the farm, and would be my number one suggestion for families with young children who want to be more hands on with their birds.
