    Stupid question... Now I know Marans Egg darkness varies bird to bird, and within a laying cycle, but are Wheaten Marans eggs as dark as BCM or even Blue Copper M eggs? ie. are all Marans Eggs created equal?

    From what I've gleaned on the Marans boards, the black coppers have the darkest eggs overall. Then blues, then the other colors.

    course, you'll have variation from hen to hen. But overall, that's what I've seen them saying.
