    Hi y'all I'm in search of some deep chocolate colored egg layers. I'd like to. It 6 eggs too hatch, I have 2 Black copper marans already but they just aren't laying as dark as I'd hoped (they just started laying a couple weeks ago). I understand they lighten with age and each egg can vary in color but I'd like to have the really dark eggs. Please PM me with info!

    Wouldn't we all. It takes lots of dedication and time to get and, more importantly, keep that egg color.
    I raise black penedesencas and am working hard on egg color with mixed results.[​IMG]

    Thanks for the reply ChickenCanoe! I figured it would be hard to find since I never see deep chocolate colored eggs anywhere but google.. starting to think it's photoshopped lol.
    What would you charge for 6 hatching eggs?

    Mine are $3 each plus shipping and the cost of the foam egg shippers. You can PM me with your zip code so I can check on shipping cost.
