    I have the most wonderful chickens. Don't know what one of the three gave me this beautiful brown, hard shelled egg. Two Black Marans and an Isa Brown. The Marans were born in March and have been squating and have beautiful red combs and waddles and the Isa Brown does not squat yet and is just getting color in her comb and waddle. Expect it is one of the Marans. So happy and proud of them. ;>)

    Quote:I have two Marans and I have noticed that their shells seem thicker and harder than my other girls. Is it extra dark?

    believe it or not I do not have a cell phone or digital camera so can't post pictures of my beautiful dark brown egg. It only weights 58 grams but it sure is pretty.
