We know you love olive eggs in your basket, so we've developed a gorgeous, true dark olive egger for you. The partridge plumage on this designer breed
consists of hens with warm brown feathers shading to reddish gold at the hackles, each feather with double black penciling. The roosters are stunning in flame and black. About 5% of chicks hatch out in different shades, too!
You'll find your Partridge Olive Egger to be a medium size, perky and curious, and probably not
first in the pecking order. They are active foragers, and prolific layers of dark olive eggs in a medium to large size. Because this is an F1 cross, there is a 1/16th chance of receiving a brown egg layer instead
of an olive egg layer. (If you want a bird with a lower chance of laying a brown egg, try our Olive Egger
, which is a mix of F1 and F2s.)
There is a small chance you may receive a white or yellow chick which will mature with lovely white feathering instead of the partridge coloration. This is normal with designer breeds.
* The minimum order of day-old chicks shipped to Rhode Island is 12 due to Rhode Island state law.
