    This dude advertises all his eggs as 7s to 9s on the marans scale (including blue and silvers). Seeing is believing...Photos anyone?

    here are mine. The first four are sexlink and americauna for contrast. They just started laying. As to what number they are on the scale Im not sure. I have two different scales that I found on the web and they are drastically different. It looks like mine would barely be a 4 on the "official" french Marans chart but a good 7 or 8 on the other one I found. Can anyone help me with this????

    just for Kicks because he is so beautiful, here is a pic of my rooster too. Would he comply with the color standard for this breed?
