Olive Eggers are an exciting breed of chickens that typically lay various shades of olive colored eggs. They are created by crossing a dark brown egg layer with a blue egg layer. I have set up two different breeding programs to offer a variety of chicks! Our Olive Eggers were created by crossing some of our foundation stock of Cream Legbars, Silverudd Blues, Black Copper Marans, Welsummers, and Blue Ameraucanas.
Our Olive Eggers include both F1 and F2 layers, The F1 hybrid will appear to you as a blue egg and the offspring of this hybrid will always lay an olive colored egg. Typically these eggs will be a lighter olive in shade.
The F2 eggs will be olive in color. The offspring from this egg will typicall lay various shades of green, generally a much darker or vibrant green, however these eggs have a 50/50 chance to also lay a dark brown color...genetics are so fun!
You will be delighted by the varied color patterns of these chicks and their beautiful and plentiful eggs. Olive Eggers will lay around 180 to 200 eggs per year.
