I have yet to see any really dark ones, does anyone have a flock that when they first started laying the egg color was over a 7 on the chart? if so anyone have pics? I am starting to wonder if they exist lol the best I have gotten from my flock so far is a nice red 5 and I want to breed for darker eggs but dont know where to begin to find them, I even looked at a lot of the french sites and they seem to have ones in the 5 range as well. And yes there are lots on e-bay but weeding through the real ones is hard as no one posts what their egg color is after their hatches reach point of lay. I know there is a marans post but it has gotten very long and I wanted to discuss egg color only.
