    Hello everyone,

    I have 3 Black Copper Maran chicks (2 hens, 1 roo) from CFB, and I am trying to get Olive Eggers. I thought that they would lay those deep chocolate eggs, but after doing more research on Marans I found that hatcheries usually don't breed for those eggs. I am torn between keeping my current chicks because one review on the website says their hen lays beautiful chocolate eggs, or getting some new chicks that are guaranteed to lay at least a 5 on the Maran Scale. Can anyone who has bought BCMs off of CFB show me a pic of their eggs?

    Thanks!
