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, barred 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-F7 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.

    FAQs - Baby Chicks

    All of our breeds are sold straight run, and customers have a 50/50 chance of receiving males or females. If you are looking for a certain number of female chicks, we'd suggest adding a few extras to your order. We do offer older ages including: juveniles, adults, laying hens, pullets or roosters if you have a specific need. The list of those breeds is found here ... We are happy to arrange a custom order as well. Please contact us.

    No, we do not vaccinate our flock or baby chicks. We constantly monitor this with our poultry vet to ensure our birds are healthy and robust. We are tested yearly for disease as NPIP participants and customers can be confident that they are receiving healthy, happy chicks from our farms.

    Did you know?... They don't crow till about 12 weeks at the absolute earliest, most later than that.

    Couple options for roosters...

    1. Use him for food for the family, maybe you have a hunter in the family that could help. Often there are families that will buy or take the rooster for meat for their family.

    2. Once hes older than four months old, Pratt's Pets (Glendale location) will purchase them from you for $10 per. If they're younger than four months, the Stock Shop will accept them if they have space.

    3. You could also post them in the Arizona Backyard Chicken group on Facebook to rehome him. Just have to be VERY careful with your wording. Rehome, sale and wording like that is not allowed by FB.

    4. Another app called MeWe you can rehome/sell there in the Arizona Backyard Chicken group but not nearly as many people in the group.

    The locations of our farms we are generally able to provide chicks and hatching eggs year around. Our hens do get 2-3 months off per year for a break to molt, rotate and just be a chicken. This is the time of year we will see lower egg counts and our availability less.

    Our recommendation and best practices: From October to March we suggest a shipping minimum of 10 chicks to ensure that chicks stay warm enough during transit. During the peak months, April -September, the recommended minimum to 6 chicks.

    We gladly offer local pick up for your order. We have strict biosecurity measures for both our flocks safety. Once your order has been placed and notified your order is ready to come home, we pre-arrange a pick up time and date with you to come to our pick up drive-thru. Very simple, we have your order boxed and ready to travel home for you. You will not need to bring any boxes, cartons or crates. Local pick up orders are considered sale is final.
