    I'm curious to see what color eggs people who order from hatcheries rather than breeding themselves get - specifically from the hens marketed as speciality ("chocolate", "olive", etc.) egg layers.

    I am still waiting on my olive egger to start laying. She is 9 months and so far nothing. My accidental blue copper Maran lays nice dark eggs. They of course are the darker ones.
