Olive Eggers are an exciting mix of chickens that typically lay various shades of green colored eggs. You can have the same eggs Dr Seuss writes about in Green Eggs and Ham!
Olive Eggers are created by crossing a dark brown egg layer with a blue egg layer. They can come in all shapes, sizes. Some may have puffy cheeks, some feathered legs, or both – who knows!? Our Olive Eggers are created by crossing some of our foundation stock of Black Copper Marans, F1 Olive Eggers and Blue Ameraucanas. Our breeding program is always in process – this is our second generation crossing so egg color can vary greatly from any shade of green to almost brown. We have some pictures of our current egg colorings (seafoam green to olive green). We love the beauty of these birds, egg size, color and look. Great addition to your homestead, farm, yard.
They are a hardy bird and can adapt to all climates and areas. Really a great all around bird for any situation, climate, confinement or free range. They are great producers of eggs and some of ours are so large could be suitable for a table bird.
