Fun Fact:  There is much debate in the world of online chickens as whether to call this breed "Maran" or "Marans." In the French language, this "s" was once pronounced and therefore has etymological significance, and is still pronounced occasionally (such as in the English "a/an"). The English tendency is to drop this silent consonant, but technically this is incorrect. In the case of the Marans, these breeds were named after a commune, so it seems appropriate to us keep the "s," regardless of what auto-correct may think. After all we don't spell Paris: P-A-R-I.
