    Wish I had a recent pic, but mine are similar to new2chooks.

    Surprised the daylights out of me, coming from hatchery birds.

    Quote:I THINK I got my first Welsummer egg today and it looked like yours rdport . . .. . .

    I have a marans too. I was expecting the welsummers to be closer to the color of my marans. Instead, their egg was closer to the color of my wyandotte.

    MY QUESTION - - - WILL THEY GET DARKER or is this all I am going to get out of them ? ? ? ?


    (I will post pictures in a few days. . . . I have two welsummers - - - so I want to wait for the other to start laying. HOPEFULLY it will be any day )
