    They must've been a surprise, they were both under the roost. I've been waiting so long that I don't even check in the morning anymore. Tomorrow I'll be sitting out there like a ghoul. And how did they know speckled eggs are my favourite? Such good girls. [​IMG]

    Those look great!!! WAY better color than my first marans egg! I bet they will get quite darker. What color are your birds, and what lines?
