    How dark are your eggs? Sometimes can be hard to tell in pictures.[​IMG]

    Quote:I'm not sure on a color scale, they are darker than a typical brown egg, but not as dark as say a Black Cooper egg. It also depends on the hen, sometimes they are extremely dark, and sometimes they are just darker brown.

    What does, "French," mean? I've only heard of, "Cuckoo Marans." Does that mean they have feathered shanks? [​IMG]

    Yes, that is right, they do have feathered shanks. The French Cuckoo Marans originated from Marans, France. [​IMG]
