    Hey y’all! Can I see your green eggs and what crosses you used to get them?

    So I don't have a picture but my neighbor gets nice big dark olive eggs from her one hen.
    Mother was a black sex link.
    Father was a barnevelder/crested cream legbar cross.

    I have done a EE bantam with a buff brahma bantam. I have 2 hens, but they will not start laying for a while. I am excited to see what their eggs look like. :ya

    I couldn't find any Olive Eggers here so I decided to keep my accidental Welsummer cockerel and breed him with my four different Easter Egger pullets when they are fully mature. Next year I'll hopefully have some pics to share, haha....and who knows, maybe my EE's will lay green in the meantime.

    I think my Easter Egger is an olive Egger. Not sure what the mix is but here is her first egg...

    An "olive" egg would be way darker green then that.
    That looks like an EE egg. Do you have a pic of the hen?
