Well.....I have had 2 sets of BC maran eggs...and neither one of them has produced a chick. I know its not my hatching skills...each time the Maran eggs were in the bator with other eggs...the others hatched. NONE of the Marans had even started developing. Are they harder to hatch or am I just not meant to have BC Marans!?? I just want some pretty dark eggs. SO not fair!
