    In looking at thier feedback they have sold these types of eggs and many more with 100% positive feedback. I would guess they are really that dark. I hope someone who knows the breed will come along and answer your question.

    They appear normal and are probably the real deal.

    Bright red is normal? Is it just my monitor cause those don't look dark. They look very very red. Redder than the barnevelder eggs I was thinking of getting.

    I did not think they look "bright" red, but it could be my really really old (like 8+ yrs) moniter. It could also be their camera did not get the color correct???? When I buy off ebay I look at their feedback and theirs does have lots and lots of eggs they have sold, including ones listed just like these. You could also send them a message asking for another pic, or if the pic they posted is off on the color.

    Don't know if the camera or your monitor made the color look redder, But I did notice they have a really high feedback and 100% feedback rating- So they must have good eggs. Don't marans eggs sometimes lighten and darken up at certain times. maybe email the seller and ask if they get darker at certain time or not. They evidently are pretty honest or somebody would have complained.

    My guess would be maybe the camera has it's color menu tinted or the light in the room, just poor camera shot is the likely culprit.
