The Marans Club Stand 2008


The BIG news for 2017 is the approval of the standard for the French Copper Black Marans by the Poultry Club of Great Britain. These can now be shown in standard French classes. Other colours [of French Marans] will still have to be entered in non-standard classes.


We all owe a big thank-you to Bill Oldcorn, Mathew Roynon and key breeders who worked hard to get the French standard into the correct format for submission and approval by the PCGB.
