    yep, I will have them In March. I will get a picture as soon as I can of two pictures. One will be the approximate color of the eggs your chicks will hatch the second will be the color of the egg you will receive.

    They are different colors because you will be receiving 1st generation Olive eggers. Meaning my Cream Legbar hen has laid the egg that you will receive. As I'm sure you know, they lay blue eggs. The hen you hatch will be the one to lay the olive egg.

    Give me a few hours to post pix. We just moved and my camera is in a box somewhere, and my camera phone wont do justice on the color (especially without much natural light today..Its gloomy outside). Soooooo.... I'm at the mercy of my oldest son to get out of bed for his camera phone.. ggrrr

    Even these pixs don't do much justice. (In a bit of a hurry to take the pix, the olive one was in the bator and removed for pix.. cold outside)

    Hope it helps give you an idea.

    They look great! How is the cream leg at as a pet? I was considering getting a chick but at 46 a bird was a bit unsure...what is the qty of eggs you will ship? What is your shipping hatch rate? Cost?

    Thanks!! I feel comfortable in shipping 12 in a box, not much more. Shipping charges usually run around $15-$18 depending on your locale. I'm doing the test hatch right now. (Due to hatch this Friday) I put 4 Olive eggers in the bator. They were all fertile and are doing great. I will let you know hatch rate. I charge $15 for 6 eggs plus any extras that are laid the day I mail package out. Sometimes its two, sometimes it zero.

    As far as pets... the creams are my FAVORITE. So gentle and sweet. When Im in the run hand feeding to everyone, at least one of them will jump into my lap and try to eat out of the oats container. haha. They were the only ones I had that consistently laid through the winter.
    Well worth the money, in my opinion. Great asset to any flock. Not to mention the gorgeous blue eggs they lay...
