Lesson 1056 – One guess

I received this email yesterday:

Hi Wendy! 🙂

Sorry to bother you but had a quick question.

I recently acquired 2 marans; a splash & a copper and although I love them they aren’t getting along with my other birds. Then I remembered you were looking for a couple and didn’t know if you were still looking?? They are about 10 months old and the splash is laying about a 3 on the maran scale and the copper a 4. Although the lady I got them from said when they started laying they were darker; the splash a 4 and the copper a 5. I got them a couple weeks ago from a lady who has a NPIP flock. She breeds Cream Legbars, Marans, and some Barnevelers. I would love to see them go somewhere local before I put an ad out. So if you do not want them, do you know someone who does? I hate to part with them but they are not jelling and tainting the vibe of the flock. The splash is a little bit of a bully only to the younger birds, but I believe its b/c she is getting bullied by the other 2 newbies I got around the same time. The copper minds her own business, but I would want them to go together.


Guess who’s getting a new Copper and a new Splash Marans this morning?
