In my experience (not much!) Cuckoo Marans generally lay a lighter egg than the black/blue copper Marans. Is this usually the case, Marans people?

I would have to agree with you sue, they are not quite as dark as the black copper or blue coppers eggs are

Are there other colors besides copper and cuckoo?

Easy enough to answer that question. According to Wikipedia...

There are 9 recognized colors in the French Standard: Cuckoo, Golden Cuckoo, Black, Birchen, Black Copper, Wheaton, Black-tailed Buff, White and Columbian. Black Copper (black with copper feathers on the neck) and Cuckoo (barred feathers, giving a black and white speckled appearance) are the most common of these. Other colours not officially recognized (such as Blue Copper, Blue, and Splash) also exist.

Now how many colors are available here in Canada?

I found a breeder in ON that had 5 colors. She had black copper, blue copper, cuckoo, birchen and if I remember right columbian. I don't remember for sure where they were located as I did not book mark it!
