    I have an Ameraucana rooster that is in the pen with my ISA Brown hens. If I were to hatch some of these eggs would I get Oliver Eggers?

    Has anyone else done this cross before?
    If so would u mind sharing ur results with us pls?

    Your're much more likely to get regular green eggs in varying shades. The true olive eggs come from a dark brown layer--Marans, Barnevelder, Welsummer, etc crossed with a blue egg layer.
