I have a huge post I've been working on for over a week (which means I really need to not do huge posts) but I had to share my excitement of our first Black Copper Marans egg! I posted about our new birds when we first received them last March. They are just starting to lay! Yay! The coloring is gorgeous.

Congratulations, what an interesting colored egg. I'm sure it will taste as good as it looks.:)

That is gorgeous!!! I'd be tempted to blow one out for saving. :-)

Gorgeous color! We got two maran (coocoo marans) three years ago because their eggs were supposed to be this dark too, but alas, they lay the lightest brown of all of them! Love the color you got though!

Thanks everyone!

Mr. H it did taste quite good, according to my 4 year old! ;)

asonomagarden - sorry you didn't get the dark coloring! The Black Copper Marans are supposed to lay the darkest of the Marans eggs otherwise they aren't supposed to be considered true BCMs. We'll see if they all color dark.
