Hi, I was wondering what an Olive Egger looks like. I've never seen one. Thanks!
Since they are cross bred chickens, they can look just about like any EE depending upon the birds used to 'create' them.
Yep, they can look like anything. They can be barred (or I guess cuckoo) if a cuckoo marans is used to make them. Look at easter eggers, the olive eggers will look pretty much the same.
My EEXWelsummer chicks have turned out various shades of yellow/brown with dark chipmunck stripes. My EEXCuckoo Marans have all came out black with white wing tips and yellow tummies. Some look like they may have barring as they grow older. They are just chicks right now but in a few months if you want pics let me know lol. This is my first time with this cross and I'm excited for a variety of dark green eggs.
olive eggers are created by crossing a blue/green egg layer to a brown egg layer so they could really look like anything
I have at least one olive egger in my group. And as mentioned, they are a mixed breed so you really don't know what they are gonna look like. But here is my Dora (when she was about 5 months old) and her olive egg (small, because she just started laying, between a leghorn and RIR).
I always thought that a mix of a BCM with a black ameraucana would be a beautiful olive egger. have any of you seen this mix?
Here's an olive egger as a pullet............
and as a hen. Essentially she's an easter egger.
This is my brothers mix breed Olive Egger. (She lays green eggs) She is half Ameraucana.
