Good to know. Yeah, I'm sure mine are the same - I wouldn't dare compare mine to any standards. Not that I'd know where to begin. Sorry you got such responses on the Brahma thread. Not nice. Our wheatens did come from nice dark eggs and that's what I really want - just adding some variation. And I think they're pretty...even if they aren't perfect! Lol. I have a broody australorp due to hatch salmon faverolle eggs from another BYCer this weekend...so excited!
