I just wanted to share one of my Marans eggs. This is from a girl that just started laying again after her molt. I just wanted to show that you don't need to have the insanely priced Black Coppers to get nice dark eggs.......This is from one of my Cuckoos. I got my original birds 6 years ago from a breeder who is now deceased unfortunately. And no, before anyone asks I don't have any eggs to sell. They're in with my laying flock with four different roos....3 Marans and one Buff orp.
