    I bought these eggs from a seller on eBay who is running a lot of auctions for "Ayam Cemani", but also other GFF strain breeds. These are claimed to be Welsummer and Tolbunt Polish. I have doubts. If people would not mind offering their experienced opinions?[​IMG]

    They do look a little on the light side, but the brown ones could be hatchery grade Welsummer eggs as there can be some variation in the darkness of the brown with hatchery quality Welsummers. The dark spots on them are definitely common to Welsummer eggs. The white eggs could definitely be Polish eggs. They look like the eggs that my Golden Laced Polish used to lay.

    For the record, this is what hatched out of the "Tolbunt Polish" eggs. The Welsummers did not hatch (only one developed / quit on day 19).
