    12+ first generation olive eggers. The chicks from these nice dark french black copper marans eggs will produce nice deep color olive eggs. I have my wheaten ameraucana and white ameraucana rooster over my FBCM hens. Both breeds are dual purpose and my hens and roosters have nice broad chests. Believe me they look like tanks with legs.

    I have a hatch that is due January first and I have been eying these eggs for my next hatch. Please save me from my addiction!

    Eggs were collected from last Saturday- today and will be shipped Wednesday. Eggs will be carefully packaged, and sent priority mail (a flat rate box) with a tracking number.

    At this time I only accept paypal, to ensure egg freshness. Please paypal me at the end of the auction so I can send these out that day. Send paypal to [email protected]

    These are the actual eggs I will be sending. I will be sending a full doz and whatever they lay between today (Monday) and Wednesday afternoon). Probably around 15 or 16 eggs will be sent....depending on the hens.

    Quote:Yeah I tried to take a photo of them today and they wouldn't come out of the coop. Not even for treats. I can't blame them it was on 15 here today. I'll see if I can coax them out tomorrow.

    edited: found a photo of the roos taken a month ago...I'll try to get a picture of the hens tomorrow.

    I'm liking that white Ameraucana rooster! [​IMG] I also like that your Olive Eggers are "true" olive eggers with pure Ameraucana and FBCM parents. They will produce a better olive egg layer. Not just green, but OLIVE GREEN! People will be amiss if they skip this auction to buy "OE's" that aren't of this quality.

    ok I snapped a photo of one brave hens this morning (see post #1). She was the only one to come out in the 15 degree weather...I'm sure as soon as the treat was gone they scurried back inside. I didn't hang around to find out...It's could out there!! [​IMG]

    Quote:They are pure. They came from Jean Ribbeck's (pips&peeps) stock.

    The marans came from onthespot.

    I would............Honestly, I would.

    But I don't have an incubator. And...You live all the way across the continent.
