I am very interested in Lanshans. I read about the Croad Lanshans in the UK Mag, Practical Poultry, and they had some pictures of Croad Lanshan eggs that were pinky dark brown, almost purple. This made me want some. I have been looking into them, but so far as I can see, there are only Black Langshans and White Langshans in this country, no Croad Lanshans. And no one has really been able to explain the difference to me, either. The people who have Langshans in the USA seem to be mostly interested in showing, not eggs, so I have not found anyone who knows of any Langshans who lay those dark pinky brown eggs. Does anyone here know of them? Or indeed, any other breed who lay an egg like that?
