What colour egg should I be expecting from my Maran & Columbian Rock cross?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I recently brought home a Maran & Columbian Rock pullet, she's a couple weeks away yet from laying.

I was wondering if she will still lay those dark chocolate eggs that marans are famous for as she is a cross. She also really looks alot like a black copper maran.

I know I could just wait and see, but I am too excited !

 

Thanks

They'll likely be about half way between the dark brown of the Marans and the regular brown of the Rock. Assuming her Marans parent laid a proper dark chocolate egg.
