Maran Chickens

I just got the two coolest Blue Marans hens. They are about 15 months old. They lay a very dark brown egg. Apparently, they are a rare breed and getting to be  quite popular. My two hens are quiet and very friendly. Both are laying, not all the time.
I am looking to expand my flock to get Black Copper Marans and Blue Marans. This way I will have four major breeds of chickens at the farm. I have Rhode Island Reds, Black and White Silkes and the Black and Blue Marans.
So do any of you folks know about a good, reputation sources for Marans? I have found out there are crosssbreeds Marans but it is hard to find purebreeds.
