    Just went and got the eggs today, and I found a dark green brown one. Do I have an Olive Egger?????? That would be pretty cool and I could mark that off my list if I do. Ive only had these birds a couple weeks.

    You have an Olive Egger, you obviously had an ameracauna rooster that mated with a brown egg layer....when I first got mine last year, I was shocked. What on earth, is someone playing a joke on me, what is this. However, after reading some posts on here I see that lots of ppl. are trying to get them. I absolutely love them now.

    There's a lady on here, goes by okcarla. Ask to see some photos of her olive eggs. [​IMG] They are true Olive Drab green, nice dark coloration.

    Her's are from ameraucanas crossed with marans.
