Im looking to get my first olive egger hen soon. (Maran/Amerucana mix)
The hens i get to choose from are 5months old.
I have read repeatedly that some first gen olive eggers can actualky be brown egg layers, and that pea combs are much more likely to have the 'blue egg' gene needed to make them lay olive eggs.
Firstly, if that true? Shoudl i make sure to pick a hen with a pea comb?
Secondly, what are tje best ways to id a peacomb vs a single or other simular combs? I tried looking for images but they seem to be wrong or too varied.
Thank you for the help
