    i would really like to have some hens that lay REALLY dark brown eggs but can't seem to find any Marans near me in northern Alberta. What other breeds lay the chocolate brown eggs?

    Welsummers seem to generally lay a more consistantly dark egg than marans do anyway, even though those marans eggs can get SUPER dark.
