    Hello was wondering if anyone has some pics of barne eggs. I hear they're supposed to lay dark eggs ,but I'm having problems finding ones that do. So I'm just wondering if they actually do and how dark they are. Thanks DWC

    Barnevelders lay very dark brown eggs, frequently referred to as chocolate eggs, as you can see in the pic of the Barnevelder eggs below.

    I do not. I understand it's hard to find a good line of dark egg layers.
