I am in Augusta GA. looking for chick varieties that will lay dark brown eggs
Welcome to the BYC flock. You will want to check out the "Marans" breed they are known for chocolate eggs.
I know that ISA Browns lay dark brown eggs with speckles. I also know that Black Copper Marans lay dark coloured eggs. That's I'll I am aware of.
Hope this helped.
I find that my red sexlinks lay a pretty dark egg. In fact, they stay dark, while the marans egg gets lighter as they get older, even during the first yr. My experience.
I've had a lot of my mixed breeds lay pretty dark brown eggs. Also, the Wellsummer, with some speckles sprinkled in.
Hi and welcome to BYC - you have some great advice already so I'll just say hello!
All the best
Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us!
Welcome to BYC! Lots of breeds lay eggs in varying shades of brown. A lot of fun is in the looking. My Delawares are always pretty consistent with the brown eggs. Plus I love their personality. Good luck in your search.
wow. thanks Ya'll. appreciate the participation! I have 12 and a broody Frizzle on 3 eggs so I don't need to order a large quantity of chicks! I would like more variety in egg color. I'm looking for that long shot that someone who lives near will have a few chicks that I can aquire! never hurts to ask!
