I have a Black Star and a Black Marans that are four years old. The Marans used to lay the beautiful dark chocolate eggs, but I haven't seen any for two years. I was showing my brother the eggs from the Black Star, and he said that those were eggs from two different hens since they were a slightly different color. Could two of these eggs be from the Marans, or is that ridiculous? Of course it's hard to see the difference in the picture.
