Hi all, Bought these 4 birds in April. THought they were all hens but one turned out to be a big beautiful roo. Anyway, they have started to lay. They eggs are small and darker in color than my rhode island reds and other brown eggs, but not the deep chocolate brown I have seen on cuckoo maran eggs. Are these birds indeed cuckoo marans? I am going to attempt to post to photos. THanks for any help you can offer. Rob in central NJ.
