    The parent birds look great. I am not impressed with the darkness of egg color though. They are about 5-6 on the color chart.
    But they look really cool. And I got an affordable price

    Breeders charge that much for BCMs and most of them do not ship well. It is not un common to spend 70 to 80 for a dozen eggs and then pay shipping.
    I don't know what you are talking about here...Oh, the intense color mix.

    Some have been trying to hatch out EEs and OEs for a long time with little success.

    I've got some white marans and they are constantly broody. Silkies have nothing on them! I have one sitting eggs right now for the 3rd clutch since spring.
