    Do they crow loudly? How often? Would you deliver?

    Yes they crow. They are feeling their oats. (If you're looking for silent roosters, these are not the ones for you....) I'd advise against keeping both together with hens because they will compete. They are ok in bachelor only situation. Calm when held, but you'll have to catch them first ;). If you are still interested in one or both, PM me and we can figure out logistics.

    I just hatched some FBCM from the Wade Jeane line, but want to darken the egg in the offspring.. What color do they lay?

    This is a pic of some eggs from the girls who've started laying (not the green ones). I also have a welsummer and a splash Marans in the coop who may or may not have laid a few of these. Overall the color has been very nice and the hatching eggs were dark.
