When it comes to appearance – Olive Eggers are a wildcard. They are predominantly black, blue or brown chicks however they grow out in almost every color and/or combination of muffs and beards. Our Olive eggers are f1, meaning first generation, and are bred from Black Copper Marans, Welsummers and Ameraucanas. These chicks will grow into hens that lay predominantly green eggs ranging in color from sage to olive. There is potential to lay other colors also. They’re of moderate size and egg production – these are truly an ornamental bird.
Note: for the safety of the chicks we will only ship less than 10 chicks April - October. If you order less than 10 chicks outside of this period your order will be moved.
Olive Egger produces 250 Olive/Green eggs per year.
Chickens require a minimum quantity of 10 to ship, you may mix breeds of the same species.
Please understand every effort will be made to accommodate the ship date requested. If for some reason this is not possible you will be notified, and we will book for the next available date.
