The official FRENCH MARANS CLUB has been in function since 1929.

It has got more than 540 members breeding the real historical Marans, the famous French pure-bred hen whose eggs called "extra red" are the darkest and the most beautiful in the world.

The MCF is affiliated to the SCAF (French central poultry farming society), to the FFV (French poultry farmer federation), à l'ANJA (National association of official poultry-farming judges).

The MCF organises the official French and international championships.

The FRENCH MARANS-CLUB is a group of poultry farmers responsible for maintaining the original and official Standard of the pure bred Marans and its eggs whose colour and shape must obey certain rules.

Beautiful coloration and brightness.

Any cross breeding is of course forbidden.

The eggs coming from these hybrids as well as the eggs from other Marans whose colour is number 4 on the MCF scale (from 1 to 9) have lost some of the essential genes. So they won't be allowed to have the Marans label according to the original standard.

Anyone, even from abroad, willing to preserve the pure bred Marans as well as its type and its original egg at national or international level and in a friendly atmosphere can join the official French Marans club.
