    Does anyone have a pic of a Langshan egg?I think I have one but not sure.I thought she was a Marans because she has specks of copper in her neck feathers but I am getting a cream color egg out of that pen and I think its her.

    [​IMG] I don't know who this darn egg is coming out of!! Maybe it happened because I wormed them a few days ago?

    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    Langshans have several distinct features, such as the high tail/back that your bird sports (which would be a serious fault and disqualification in a Marans as its more than 45 degrees?)....Langshans have a beautiful green sheen to their feathers, and also lay a dark brown egg....hmmm not a Marans, but not the source of your cream colored egg?
    There is a previous post from Chickenlisa with a Black Langshan egg in her incubator, I hatched some out too! Go to page one to see the egg.
