    I thank you. They're not quite as warm as they look in the pic, but it's so close. :p

    All you need is an olive egger and you'll be set! Great looking eggs.

    If you got a Black Copper Marans you'd have dark chocolate eggs to really make that egg box pop with contrasting colors!

    And then you could make your own Olive Eggers to round out your collection of pretties. You need some white egg layers too :D

    I had a BEAUTIFUL blue copper maran, but she unfortunately suffered from egg yolk peritonitis. I want another. I have my limit of 5 hens now and I have an unkind neighbor that will report me the moment I add a 6th. Some day. [​IMG]
