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, white 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, we like to call these our Chocolate Eggers! 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 !!!!
These guys helped so much in the process of choosing a few kinds of chicks for our flock. Easy pick up, each type of chick had a band and then a description of the color of band so we know which chick is what. Just fantastic people, service, and we love our new chicks!
Chicks were healthy and active and after the first week are still running around like mad raptors. No issues with health and all is in good order.
Customer service was excellent! I picked up 4 perfectly happy and healthy baby chicks from the post office! So fun!!
The babies arrived safe and sound via the us mail. They are growing so big already for only being a week old.
