    Her daughters, such as the one shown below:

    When available, I list these eggs on E-Bay under the heading 'Olive-Eggers'. I typically ship the blue eggs that will hatch out the birds that lay the olive eggs. I can also ship olive eggs that will hatch birds that should lay a darker olive egg as well if available.

    Question. So do all of your hens produced by this EE Marans cross produce olive eggs, or are some brown? I have heard that sometimes chicks from a pair will turn out to lay brown eggs, usually chicks that did not inherit the pea comb and or muffs from the Ameracauna. Curious, because I am trying for the same thing with an EE similar to yours and a Birchen Marans. I was so excited to see that one of their pullets had FINALLY laid an egg, and it was...brown! I believe it came from one of the pullets who did not inherit the pea comb and muffs though, and I am HOPING that her sisters that did will lay olive eggs!
    Beautiful olive eggs you have!!

    I also would like to purchase five olive-eggers to hatch or get 5 wee hens/chicks.

    I'd like to get some olive eggs that will hatch out the chickens that lay the dark olive eggs, please. :) Is there really a list? I have been hatching Maran-over-Aracauna and got two. I can't have a rooster in my neighborhood so can't have a Marans rooster to breed my new generation to get the dark olive egg layers. You're my salvation. Thanks for posting your information. Please let me know!

    Oh, thank you so much for posting this! If I was to try and get OE's by crossing a Marans roo with an EE hen, would I get what you got?
