    Interesting. The Bielefelder eggs I received are equivilent to a light Marans color. A nice terra cotta color, but who knows what the chcks will lay. I hope as pretty as what they hatched from. :)

    You could always select for darker eggs.

    There are a lot of reasons why some brown eggs are deeper color than others - genetics, time spent for egg traveling throught oviduct, end of laying season, etc. It's a Marans website but covers all breed pigments in eggs:

    I think so. I'm starting to get fertilized eggs with my biele/cl cross and am tempted to try it, but I just don't have time for chicks right now.
