Mixing a brown egg layer with a green egg layer

Should be Hlaf Green, Half Brown. The genetics for the green are (O/o+), while the brown are (o+/o+). Hope this short bit helps

To make an "Olive egger", you need to breed to a dark brown egg layer, like welsummers, marans, penedesencas, etc.
If you breed them to a medium or light brown layer, you will get a light-meduim green.
 
Yep - "Olive Eggers" come from a blue/green parent and a dark laying parent, preferrably Marans, Penedesenca, or Welsummer.


Otherwise, green x brown layer, normal brown layer, just makes Easter Eggers with a chance of laying brown or greenish khaki colored eggs.
