The eggs I have for sale are darker than the ones shown. They are from pullets hatched from the above eggs, but fathered by my very best copper black marans rooster, Goody. See my website for pics of him and the egg he hatched out of! These black marans hens are in with a splash ameraucana rooster with color faults, shown below. ALL the babies will hatch out with blue plumage, pea combs and beards and very good olive egg genetics. Fertility is excellent and my incubator is full. I have only one hen laying the actual DEEP green egg, and several other dark laying marans in with the Ameraucana roo that should hatch out to lay very nice deep olive eggs for you later on this summer/early fall. You can combine shipping with other eggs if you want more than one sort of egg. The color on the marans eggs right now is similar to the darker eggs in the basket below. Some are even darker. You don't have to wait to the end of the auction to buy it now.
