Black Copper Marans are an active bird that enjoys foraging and free-ranging but will also tolerate confinement fairly well. They are also winter hardy, so they are suitable for the colder climates given adequate housing and shelter. These are beautiful birds that are calm and gentle. The hens lay extraordinary, dark, chocolate-colored eggs. On average, a hen will give you around 3 eggs/week, which works out to around 150-200 eggs/year. This means that the Black Cooper Maran is an average layer in quantity, but the egg’s quality is said to be unsurpassed. The hens are said to good setters and mothers but not overly broody.
