    Is it true that if you breed a Cuckoo Maran with a blue egger chicken, that you will end up with chicks that will lay olive eggs?
    Thank-You

    Yes, BUT I don't know how green that olive egger will be. The CM tend to lay a lighter brown egg than my BCM. So, [​IMG] you might get a light green!
