Are Cockoo Maran eggs darker then most eggs? I thought so but I just ordered some hatching eggs and when I got them I am surprised to see they are not any darker then my orpingtons eggs. Does anybody have some picture so I can compare. Thanks
Well dang it! I wanted these for the dark eggs and I did a lot of reading about them before I decided to try to hatch some out. Everything I read on the net said these eggs might not be as "dark" as the Black Coppers but should still be dark. These eggs I got are not dark at all. I guess I will be building yet another coop for these chicks if they hatch, I was just planning on putting the pullets in with my orpingtons but I can't if I can't tell the eggs apart as I want to keep my Lav orps pure. I'm already at my limit for chicks this year if these hatch.....oh well there is always next spring right?
