Get or give the chocolates you crave.These will give you wonderfully colored eggs that are so beautiful you will want to eat the shell! What you receive from each of the 3 pens will depend upon the eggs laid 2 days before shipment. Black Copper Marans & BBS pen has beautiful birds and has Wade Jeanne and Bev Davis lineage and now the Garry Farm Lineage.Wheaten marans flock is of Bev Davis/Buddy Henry lineage and now Garry farm lineage as well. Some of the hens have been laying for over 8 months without moulting, so their eggs are a lighter than the picture. All birds are at different times of their moulting, so some of the eggs will be lighter than others...We believe it's important for you to know that all birds were born of dark egg layers which increases your genetic possibilities of dark egg layers, though it doesn't guarantee.
