    Up for auction: 12+ eggs from our two project Olive pens. The best part about Olive Layers is all the different shades you can get right? Well, to increase the options, we have split our 1st and 2nd generation olive girls into two pens - you will hatch chicks that will lay all over the spectrum, from light sage green, teal, and golden olive to dark olive and green.

    Pen 1 contains a handsome Black Copper Marans rooster with several blue and black olive laying hens. We have paired our lighter green layers with this male to deeper their olive drab color. One of my favorite teal layers is in this pen!

    Pen 2 contains a wonderful Splash Ameraucana rooster (pips&peeps) paired with our Black Copper Marans hens & darker green/olive layers. The eggs these chicks will lay will be a richer green/olive - due to their father's vibrant blue genetics.

    Your chicks will be either blue or black, with copper highlights.

    Eggs will ship on 4/18 (Monday) so payment needs to be made at the end of the auction. Paypal only please.

    We ship flat rate priority ($15), or regional ($9ish) if available based on your zip code, plus a 3$ fee for materials (bubble wrap, packing peanuts, etc).

    Please also note that even as carefully as your eggs will be shipped, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit (although we haven't had one break yet!). We also cannot guarantee the percentage of your hatch as the incubators temperature and humidity are very variable.

    Thanks and Happy Bidding!!

    Hey, you should! I hatched 8 of these chicks. And that was after two power outages!

    I was going to send a message to Alicefelldown, but I saw her egg auction.... and well.....My chicks are really shiny. I mean they are super shiny. They are also the peppiest chicks I have ever had. Very nice. The colors of these eggs are wonderful. Just like the picture. I can't wait until they start laying! [​IMG]
