    It's basically due to the fact that after a couple of years, the color tends to fade from chocolate to a coffee/tan color.
    They are beautiful and I intend to hatch some in the spring!

    Yeah, the fact that the color fades is the only reason that they are not very popular. I still love them though and actually like the lighter/mottled color.
