    Hi Everyone,
    My kids and I are trying to decide which Marans to buy. Which do you feel has the darker brown colored eggs?

    Okay...

    Hatchery Marans might lay dark eggs if your lucky. For genuine, dark colored eggs, you should find a breeder. And French Black Copper Marans lay darker eggs than Cuckoo Marans.

    Hope you find what your looking for! [​IMG]
