    You are bidding on 10+ any extras at time of shipping from my Blue Marans and Blue Splash Marans pen. I have 1 French Standard Blue Splash Roo with 3 French Standard Blue hens and 2 Blue Splash hens. From this you can expect Blue and Blue Splash.
    So far I have out a majority of blue splash chicks both feathered and clean legs including from the darker eggs. I am now getting some solid blue chicks!
    My line came from a breeder with primarily Davis lines.
    the pic of the eggs shows 4 eggs from my blue pen on the left next to 4 BCM eggs in the middle and one Coronation Sussex on the right for comparison. these were collected 1/19/11. the egg color on the blue splash is still lighter right now. It's something I am working on with crossing with the solid blues. The solid blues are a beautiful egg but still not as dark as the Black Copper Marans.
    I cannot guarantee your hatch rate due to conditions beyond my control. Hatching eggs are a risk so please DO NOT bid if you do not understand this.
    My hatch rate with these eggs here has been 95 to 98%. I have included some current chick pics that were hatched on 1/16/11 and an older chick.
    Shipping will be priority mail with a tracking number. These eggs will be ready to ship Monday. Payment is paypal only and is expected within 24 hours of auction ending. NO ECHECKS.
