Egg Show Information AND Club Show Products

The Marans Chicken Club USA (MCCUSA) actively promotes the breeding and development of
eggs are highly prized in France from which the breed originated.

The MCCUSA club is actively seeking APA recognition for the Marans breed and believes highly
educated club members and continuous exposure of the breed to poultry fanciers is critical to
successfully meeting this goal.

The MCCUSA club will actively promote and organize egg shows.  Egg Shows are Open
Invitation events.  All Marans breeders are invited to participate in the event and are encouraged
to exhibit their eggs.  

Marans egg entries are classified and separated by variety i.e. Black Copper, Blue, Cuckoo, etc.  
Also, each entry consists of a total of three eggs. Participants are not limited by the number of
entries they wish to submit and are encouraged to have multiple varieties. Egg shows are
always a popular event at poultry shows and are openly displayed to the public.

Typically, entries are judged by a certified PBA or ABA judge and scored on the following
characteristics: Shell Color, Shape, Texture and Uniformity.  Marans are known for their unique
ability to lay dark russet colored eggs therefore, egg shell color scoring is heavily weighted.  
Darker eggs are awarded more points.  At a minimum marans eggs have to score at least a 4 on
the shade color card or else they are not considered marans eggs.

Poultry fanciers and persons with a few Marans in their backyard are encouraged to compete in
egg shows.  If you are unable to attend, but wish to participate you can do so by mailing egg
entries to the MCCUSA Director or the appointed member running the egg show.

If you want to accurately judge the colors of your birds' eggs,  you need an egg show card.  The MCCUSA
