    I'm looking for a couple/few marans girls or any breed that lays really dark eggs. I don't care if they are off-color, blind in one eye, mutts, whatever! I just want the eggs to hopefully try and get some female olive eggers of my own. My wellie roo was giving me all boy OE chicks, so the entire hatching season was a bust for me [​IMG] (I have a splash marans pair, but the eggs are just like my wellies- just not dark enough) I'll travel about anywhere in mid- to -east TN, N Georgia, N Alabama, SE NC. Thanks!!!!

    I might gave some culls available this fall. I'm in Statham ga. Once I get all of them to one house I'll have a better idea of who is going. If I'm not too far from you send me a pm and I'll get back to you as soon as I know.

    I have 3 BCM pullets; 1 is very nice, the other 2 are mossy. Unfortunately I have 2 mossy roosters as well that I don't want to get stuck with, so I kinda want roosters to go with them [​IMG] Let me know what you think, here, facebook, whatever [​IMG]

    ETA: These are POL, about 18-20 weeks old. They came from very, VERY, dark eggs [​IMG]
