Pros: Beautiful sky blue eggs, beautiful unique chicken, big personality, MUFFFFSSSS, BEEEAAARDDDSSS
Cons: Bad egg patterns, has big voice box, enjoys sound of ones own voice, not very hygenic (gets food stuck in muffs and beard)
My olive egger is an Ameruacana mix. She's a pretty crap layer (she gave up laying after two sky blue eggs and now hogs the laying boxes to lay her phantom eggs), and she came home with a bumble foot. She also enjoys screaming her heart out for no apparent reason. Mine is a little on the dumb side, with some difficulty eating (you have to hand feed them, and when they're full, they'll just look at you).
Negatives aside, olive eggers have big personalities and beautiful eggs (when they choose to lay them). They are friendly inquisitive bird (a little too heavy to fly as much as the average leghorn), and enjoy massages and sitting in your lap (a little too much as tehy sometimes fall asleep - once she's on, she'll never leave!). They are also relatively beautiful, and once you've looked into their derpy eyes, you know you're not going to let this chicken go. Seriously, who doesn't want a bearded, muffed wonder!
I would recommend this chicken for kids (please DON'T use this beautiful inquisitive breed for meat)!!!!!!
everything is worth it for the muffs
