We recently got a Marans and we didn't think she was laying anything because we weren't getting any really dark eggs. But since we've been getting 4 eggs from 4 chickens multiple days over the past couple of weeks, it seems reasonable to conclude she's been laying some of the eggs we thought were from our Plymouth Rock.
Will her eggs ever likely get darker? And how can you tell a Plymouth Rock egg and a very light Marans egg apart?
Here's some of our recent eggs. I'm pretty sure the Plymouth Rock's are the three on the left. Could the three on the right (and possibly the middle one) be from a Marans?
For comparison, these I know are from the Plymouth Rock:
Here's one I just got that I know is from the Marans
