Those are some beautiful dark brown eggs! Which Marans type did you go with from Gypsy?Just got my Marans hatching eggs in and wow...I can’t see the darn aircells to save my life. Even with my 1000 lumen flashlight. Sigh. One was cracked badly but the other 14 look perfect as far as no cracks. Just dying to know how bad the air cells look so that I know how to proceed. I guess I’ll just incubate them upright in cartons and turn manually until I figure it out. The aircells always get easier to see as the chick grows because there is some contrast in there. Here’s a pic of my eggs. Threw in a store bought brown egg to show color better.
