Wheaten Marans - pictures of eggs?

    At the local chicken swap this fall, I purchased a young wheaten marans pullet. I ended up with a wheaten because I let my daughter pick it. I wasn't expecting to really like her, for whatever reason. I'm not sure why though, lol. Let me just say that I love this little girl. She is the sweetest thing, and has a lovely personality. She lets me pick her up, and follows me around. This morning she was weaving in and out of my legs like a cat when I was feeding them. She's not at all flighty and not very vocal. I really like her a lot. I can't wait until she starts laying. Anyone have photos of eggs from their wheaten marans? I would love to see them!
