The color of the Black, Blue or Blue Splash will not change from eggs hatched out as light in color. However, you still stand a chance with this hen, after her molt you may see that her eggs have darken. The color of you egg is however very light. Look to breeding., breeding to a rooster that  both he and the hen come from hens laying grade 4  or above will ensure dark eggs. The color of the rooster's feathers, the hen's feathers doesn't transfer into dark eggs. Have had Marans for years and they are a mystery!!! Guess that's why I keep them.
