    As far as I know the Marans Bantams and Welsummer Bantams are the darkest egg layers.

    I believe there are several of us with them now. Mine are 4 weeks old, still don't know who is who yet and what colors will finish out. I know I have some cuckoo and the others are still just black, sure that will change with age. They did come from nice brown eggs. [​IMG]

    Look at the Marans Club and find some bantam breeders in there. Someone would be able to help you there.
