Olive Egger.. Possible cross?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was told this guy was an olive egger from the family that hatched him out. His two brothers were exactly the same.

Any idea of the cross?

Easter Egger x Black Copper Marans? Or Welsummer?

Really, it could be either cross. Both Marans and Wellies have single combs, which he seems to have inherited.

With that pink skin, my vote would be Marans.

Can't see in the picture, but although he has clean shanks he has tufts of feathers between his toes, as well.

The lady said he is "all olive egger" so I am assuming he is an f2 cross.

Can't wait to see what kind of eggs I get when I cross him to my BCM and Easter Eggers, or even my partidge rock crosses.

If he's got feathers showing on his toes (and pink skin, great eye donrae!), definitely Marans I'd think. Wellies are clean legged.
