Question 1: Is feathering on the legs correlated in anyway to the darkness of the egg? Can you have clean legged Marans that lay an 8-9 egg? Question 2: Are missing/loose feathers on Marans related to nutrition, genetics, or breed vigor in anyway? (assuming there is no roo jumping them all the time) Question 3: Does anyone have eggs on the scale from 8-9 or is that just the ideal of something to work toward? Thanks for any and all posts!
