    I think it's her sister that has the blue laced red wyandottes,,,, not that she couldn't get eggs from her,,, silver wyandottes have a distinct pattern all over them,,, would think they would also,,, and are clean legged. Some Marans are born with brown areas on them,,,, not considered to be a good trait by most,,, some say they are " over melanized " or turn out to be " mossy " meaning the black lacks the green luster in sunlight. They almost always vary,,,, that's why alot of people cull heavily, to keep some uniformity to their stock. Most like the chicks to have the "penguin" look and not be too dark or have brown anywhere, believed that comes from recessive genes from crossing colors,,,, usually wheaton.

    How dark were the surprise dark eggs.... marans dark ?

    The one chick looks like it could be a cochin,,, they should have feathering on it's middle toe, the marans should not

    Crappy Crappy Day. I didn't let anyone out yesterday as we were in Philly all day. This morning I let everyone out. All 3 babies came out and went to the small outside waterer. I came back in the house. Fiancee went out awhile later...and later told me he only saw 2 of the babies. So then I went out a bit later...I only saw 2 of the babies..so I went on a hunt...and found one of my cockerels dead behind the water barrel! GRRR!!!!

    Then we got a message on the phone from the neighbor up the road. Said that if my ducks are caught on their property again, she's gonna shoot them!!!! I was already planning on keeping everyone in for the next 3 days, as we're leaving for NJ tomorrow afternoon....but now when I come back, I have to clip wings! Something I don't want to do! And how the expletive deleted am I supposed to keep them from WALKING up there???
