    Ameraucana will lay blue eggs. Easter Eggers will lay blueish type depending on what they have been breed with. [​IMG]

    Olive eggs are produced when you put an Ameraucana that came out of a blue egg over a Marans or other dark brown egg laying breed, the resultant pullets will most often lay dark olive colored eggs.
