Day-Old Chicks: Olive Egger
Olive Egger hen Olive Egger Olive Egger Olive Egger chicks Olive egg colors can vary!
dying for olive eggs in your egg basket, and they're finally
here! This new designer breed is producing an assortment of beautiful olive
egg layers. (We're keeping some of our breeding secrets under wraps, but
we can say we are using Marans, Legbars, Welsummers, and Ameraucanas in the mix, both F1 and F2!) There is no guarantee which
of the breeding programs your chicks will originate from, but you
will be delighted by the varied color patterns of these chicks. Your chicks may have that adorable chipmunk pattern, or be black with yellow and white spots, or be all blue. Best of all, the parent stock are friendly, easy-going breeds, so your Olive Egger is likely to be a family favorite!
Though the plumage on this cross varies, 95% of our Olive Eggers will lay an olive-shade
from lighter olive to very dark "army green." For genetics lovers, the reason for that is our flock is a combination of F1s and F2s. F1s have a 1/16th chance of laying a brown egg instead of an olive egg, and F2s have nearly a 100% chance of laying olive eggs.
This is one of the rare breed chicken breeds Martha Stewart asked us to deliver to her in 2017 for her own flock!
