Exhibition Lavender Araucanas and Various French Marans Breeds
Jul 27, 2011Public
Photo: The next pen I stumbled across contained some Marans and Araucana growers. The Marans were Copper-Blacks and the Araucanas were the Lavender variety - by far the most popular laying a blue / green egg. The Copper-Blacks lay a dark brown egg and these are very popular with customers. It was good to see them in their free ranging rearing quarters with loads of space to roam. I backed them into a corner to get for effect. Steve breeds many of these and still cannot keep up with demand.
