I added a pair of young BCM pullets to my flock memorial day weekend and at long last I got my first Marans egg today!!! It has got to be the most beautiful egg I have ever seen. Dark dark brown with speckles all over. Can't wait till tomorrow. What kind of laying rate can I expect? Also, I was told that these first eggs would likely be double yolked, is there any truth to that? These are the first birds I have ever had from adolescence. All others were adults when I got them.
