Is Marradunak plural of Marraduna?

Just a guess.  I was at this website 

http://www.ibarrolabekoa.net/produktuak.php?lang=eng

"We dedicate to the nipper and it gains weight of chickens and capons out of the 5 varieties of the breed Euskal Oiloa: Marradunak, Zilarrak, Gorriak, Lepasoilak and Beltzak."

Marradunak is the plural of Marraduna. In Basque (Euskera) the finish of a word -K means plural like -S in Spanish or English.

That is really interesting. I have seriously been considering learning the Basque language in case I come to see the chickens and the mountains there!  The videos you posted before made me want to visit!  :jumping:

That was very interesting and helpful! :thanks:
