We are considering placing a small order with MyPetChicken and are looking for a colorful egg basket. So far I have EE, exchequer leghorns, speckled sussex, partridge plymouth rock, and wyandottes on our "wish list." I am toying with the idea of adding marans or welsummers as well for an extra dark egg but have heard that hatchery stock of these breeds often lay eggs that aren't much darker than a "regular" brown egg. I don't care if they aren't the "best" color for the breed, but if I'm going to pay the 4.25/pullet I want the eggs to be at least noticeably different from the rest of the brown eggers. Any thoughts/personal experiences with these breeds from this particular hatchery?
