    I just picked these up from a breeder today, they are supposed to be black splash and a couple blue and one easter egger! I was going to put these in the incubator tomorrow, please tell me your thoughts on quality. He said the hens that laid them came from the bev davis line?

    They look fine to me. BCM are the ones that lay the darkest eggs. Splash and blues lay dark eggs but not as dark as BCM. Yours are still pretty dark.
