Olive Eggers are hybrid 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. A common cross is Creme Crested Legbar with a Black Copper Maran to create the olive colored eggs.
Our Olive Eggers can be black, blue or chipmunk and will lay varying shades of Olive with possible speckles and heavy blooms. With each passing generation, olive eggs will be darker, creating an increased risk of offspring laying brown eggs. The chicks you receive will be from our F1-F5 generations.
There is also a small few with varying degrees of Fibro or Fibromelanism, in some of our Olive Egger flock. The Fibro Olive Eggers could give self-blue (lavender) or blue colored chickens depending on what cross is received.
We also offer hatching eggs for this breed
This chick may come leg banded for easy identification. Remove leg band within 7 days.
No sure if they encountered a Blizzard but they shipped the 3rd wk of Feb and came from a second farm in Texas. All eight chicks made it and we now have a VERY happy hen who had been broody for over a month!!! The staff at AZ Chickens were great about letting us know they were going to ship and then requested arrival up date as there was a big cold front here in the Southwest. They will DEFINITLY be our Go To when needing flock additions !!!!
We love our Olive Eggers! AZ Chickens has been super helpful, and great with communication through the whole process. I started bugging them on FB messenger 6 months before we got our chicks, and they have been a wealth of knowledge and support. Would recommend to anyone looking for chicks! Looking forward to when our girls start laying!
