    TESTERS - I have a new, young French Black Copper Marans cockerel in the breed pen. Eggs have been not consistently fertile yet, but I'd like to check hatchability.

    Hens I use are all blue with beautiful lacing -

    The olive egg in my avatar is an example of what the offspring should lay, or it could be darker olive with a golden tint, like this:

    Or olive, golden tint, heavy speckling, like this:

    My Marans rooster that the blue hens are bred back to is full Presley line, he is GORGEOUS and was hatched from a very dark egg, but I have not hatched any of his offspring yet, so I have no idea what color the pullets will lay.

    Eggs need to be paid for (via PayPal) by noon on Wednesday and will be shipped out Wednesday afternoon.

    AWE! Thanks, Kelly! [​IMG]

    I REALLY want to hatch some, but I have to find new homes for several as it is.....the olive eggers are my very favorites, though!
