    Great Link Gritsar [​IMG] Nice for researching any breed.

    My husband was researching which brown egg breed that we'll be getting & he's decided Rhode Island Red. We like their Rich Medium Brown egg color for their Large Eggs.

    I'm thinking about the RIR's because they seem nice and they lay a lot of eggs:)

    Thanks to Feathersite for the pix.

    Cuckoo Marans lay a very dark egg. Still waiting for mine to get old enough to start laying.
