1) Is it Barnevelders or Welsummers that lay really dark "chocolate" colored eggs or do they both??? Barnevelders have the Lacing like the Wyndottes. and. Welsummers have similar feathering to Dorkings. 2) If they both lay dark eggs then which breed has better egg production. I want to get some dark egg laying hens for my flock and just want to get he right ones. Not sure why but get these two breeds mixed up all the time.
