    I love Maran eggs because if you sell them, people ask you how come they are so dark and beautiful. [​IMG]

    I'm envious! I have 3 BCM chicks but they're only two weeks old. I have a long time to wait for those dark eggs. What age did your BCM start laying?

    Our BCM just laid her first egg this week and then laid a second egg as well! It was very exciting. Here's a picture of the first one.

    It's way darker than the picture showed and the second one was even darker. She is nine months old and wasn't in anybody's hurry to lay an egg. Silly girl. We are still waiting on the last of our pullets to lay...

    I've got lucky with my BCM. They started laying two months ago.
