HI! I have some BCM that came from Wade Jean lines. They have been laying since August 2008. Their eggs color was a 6-8 when they started laying. Their egg color has reduced since. I breed to the French Standard. They have been fantastic layers through this cold weather. Exelent forages and are real friendly. I am taking 2009 eggs orders. PS: I will also have chicks in March. Thank You.
