You've been waiting for Lavender Marans, and they're finally here! We were shocked with the overwhelming response you gave us for our newly imported Black Copper Marans from the champion French bloodlines that we decided to find a new Marans color to offer just for you!
Our new and highly anticipated Lavender Marans were hand selected by us from show quality stock. We have built up an exquisite breeding flock of these rare chickens you likely won't find from any other chick hatchery.
The lavender or "self blue" color is new and highly prized in the world of chickens, and we've selected our breeder flock for the perfect Lavender color, along with fully feathered legs and feet, and some exceptionally dark chocolate eggs! Our Lavender Marans lay almost as dark of an egg on average as our Black Copper Marans and some of the Lavender hens lay even a darker egg than our average Black Copper Marans eggs! On the Marans chocolate egg color chart our Lavender Marans seem to average 6-7 with some up in the 8 range! They have simply blown us away with how dark their eggs are for such a rare newly created breed.
They are large, stand upright and best of all, this breed is calm and gentle, making them wonderful backyard pets. They lay 3-4 dark chocolate eggs per week.
Feather Lover Farms is privileged and honored to be able to offer our new and incredibly rare Lavender Marans.

Shipping: You will receive an automatic email and text message when your chicks ship along with tracking info. Chicks usually arrive in the morning 1-2 days later and your local Post Office will call you for pickup. Chicks are never delivered to your home address, even if you used a home address for your shipping address.
What I Need:Everything you need can usually be purchased at your local feed store. Chick starter feed, waterer, brooder (cardboard box, plastic storage bin, bathtub, or even a kiddie pool are popular), pine shavings, thermometer and a heat lamp or heat source. Baby chicks require heat of about 95 degrees their first week of life. Second week you can lower the temperature to 90 degrees and so on with every week going down 5 degrees until 6-8 weeks old or when they are ready to go "outside".
How Do My Chicks Survive Shipment?:Baby chicks do not need food or water for the first 72 hours of life. Ingesting their yolk sac gives them the nutrition they need to survive the journey from Feather Lover Farm's hatching facility to you! Shipping day-old chicks helps ensure a safe arrival since they will usually be just 2 days old when you receive them. Our packaging is professional with a brand new chick shipping box, nesting material and warm long lasting heat packs depending on the time of the year. Your chicks will look like they just hatched out of a nest when you open the box and jump into your arms, thinking you are their mother hen!
