    I noticed on ebay....I was just LOOKING.......that theres several auctions for different varieties of marans, and the bidding wars seem to be over. Is it likely the craze has settled down and they will start selling like any other chicken eggs this year?

    Quote:I definitely think so. There might be a few "elite" sellers, longtime breed fanciers, whose stock remains in high demand (I mean, with the glut on the market that's about to happen, that would almost certainly have to be the case), but I'm betting that the newcomers will be selling eggs at way more reasonable prices.
