    fertility is good finally lol and my bators are full so I am offering some of my FBCM eggs. There will be 12 plus extras. when they first started laying the egg color was a 5 and 6 but they have lightened a bit since then. The roo hatched from a 7 egg color on the chart so I suspect ofspring will lay darker eggs than the parents do. I have one Blue Copper Marans in with them so a few eggs may hatch out as french Blue Copper Marans, the rest will be black. I will post pics of the chicks later but here is the flock. Pics are a few months old and they look much better now. [​IMG]

    Do you happen to know if your blue copper is laying? I'd really like some of those...

    Could you possibly post more pics of your roo or roos if you breed with more than one. I am interested in eye color, and breast coloring, if you could include pics of those particular areas.
