    Just picked these up so wanted to see if anyone wanted to have some fun and have Olive Eggers laying in the spring!


    Olive Eggers are sex-linked and will be blue or black, males will have some barring females are solid. Birds will have beards and muffs. They are out of Cuckoo Marans hens, so pullets will lay the green in picture, but your sent eggs will be brown. Grown out offspring from this cross has produced all peacombed olive laying Olive Eggers but one thus far, of course, there is always a chance you will get a straight comb and therefore brown eggs.
    You will probably get speckles on Olive Eggs, as well, some days they are solid, some speckled.
    Pls pay by 4pm Monday to get eggs in the mail. Or by Tues am if you live close---then I can check for more eggs!

    Storage, fertility, hatching is good, shipping careful...individual results may vary for you.

    Actually there are 8 and I havent checked what has been laid today, was figuring on a few more.
    These cuckoos are really great layers, and there are almost always eggs everday, I dont know how much to
    anticipate as soon as the temps drop, though. We will always have the breeds
