    I have seen pictures on here of eggs that are really really dark brown, and was wondering which breed laid them. I would like to get more chickens and want to get different ones. I have ones that lay brown eggs. I would like to get some that lay a different color than my brown layers. Any suggestions??

    Marans, lay dark brown eggs (Welsummers and a couple of others)

    See the normal brown on top along with a white polish egg and some blue Ameraucana eggs there with the dark brown marans.
