    These are the eggs for comparison. My Bantams are not from OP's lines. It is a different line.

    The eggs aren't real dark in the bantams are they? I wonder if there is a way to improve that.

    Quote:Of course...if you use only the chicks hatched from the darkest eggs for breeding, there will be improvement with each generation...

    I understand that is how it works with dark eggs but these aren't dark.

    Quote:No, not really, are they?...but I have always understood that dark egg layers have been produced from the lighter brown layers. Am I mistaken? Did "dark" originate in nature?
