    Hi folks, I was looking for another breed to add to our flock here and read somewhere of one that lays a bronze colored egg. Now that I'm ready to get some, I can't find where I read that anywhere! [​IMG] Anyone know which breed I'm talking about? Thanks....

    Marans and Prendesca lay "chocolate eggs". Black Copper Marans supposedly are the darkest.

    Thanks...I'm looking for like a dark gold or brass which is what I assume they meant by bronze colored. Anything like that out there?

    Chocolate (colored) eggs sound pretty cool - I may go with those instead. Just like to give our egg customers a wide variety of colors in the cartons! Thanks for the chart!

    No problem, I'm betting its a chocolate egg they are looking for.
