Crossing Marans with RIR will dilute the dark brown egg color.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

You'll get blue birds and black birds both with red color leakage. Hackle feathers and wing bows being most common areas of red splash color. The amount of red spash effect will be individual to each bird.
