    I have, what I was told, is a Cuckoo Marans hen. She laid her first egg today and it was a light cream colored egg. I was very disappointed because it wasn't even remotely chocolate in color. Could anyone here tell me what breed I *DO* have? Or if perhaps maybe a newly laying pullet may apply the chocolate spray paint later on?

    Note: She does have feathered feet and shanks.


    Note: Marans egg in my hand, Oprington eggs on the counter below.
