    Im doing a science paper on the hatch rate percentage of blue eggs vs brown eggs. I wanted to know if I should do a more specific question like the hatch rate percentage of a crested cream legbar egg vs a maran egg

    The problem is that so much factirs into hatching...

    .how far the eggs travelled
    .the diet of the parents
    .how clean the eggs are
    .change in elevation

    So, to do a good study, you would have to get all of the eggs from the same place.

    Also, marans can be trickier, since they have more coatings on their eggs....

    I would pick non-maran eggs, but all frm the same person, and make sure all of the breeders are fed the same.
