    I'm about to start collecting my eggs for my very first incubator. I recently got a lavender orpington pair and I have a cream legbar hen as well as salmon faverolle hen. Will my orpington/legbar mix give me "olive eggers"? My legbar lays beautiful big blue/green eggs right now.

    I got some welsummer chicks and some new legbar chicks but they won't be ready to lay until end of summer. I plan on crossing the welsummer and legbars for next years hatch.

    Thank you! I'm excited!

    Hello! I’d love to hear how you hatch went. I am guessing you ending up with Easter Eggers. I’m interested in breeding Orpingtons to Cream Legbars and I was told the result would lay a “spearmint” to tan egg.
