    im new at this . sorry if i post incorrectly. i have a trio of standard salmon faverolles that have been laying for about three weeks . their eggs are a very nice dark tan brown even darker than my langshan eggs . i am very pleased with their dark brown eggs . they are uniform in color and shape. but i must say i am surprised because all my research says they should be cream colored . and my faverolles are some of the best representation of their breed. so my question is ,anyone experience this dark egg color with their faverolle ?[​IMG]

    Welcome to the BYC forum!!

    Although I am not able to answer your question...I can give you a bump. Looks like you did post in the right topic. I'm surprised you got no reply. Sometimes a message gets buried because so many come in to BYC. Don't get discouraged at all. If no one answers this with a good breed-related answer, perhaps try to post with the breed name in the title.

    Good luck.
