    Ok so I have posted these guys before. First one is oreo. Still pullet?

    Second one. Still a Roo?

    Third one is a Roo. Crowing.

    Last question. Second is blue egger, third one is an olive egger. If I have a blue egger hen and also a Maran if I keep one or the other do I have a chance at getting olive eggers?? If so who do I keep?

    Blue egger roo over Marans hen should give you olive eggs... but an olive egger roo (depending on how many brown genes he inherited) over Marans *could* give you deeper olives... over the blue you'd probably get greens... if you want to keep getting blue eggers at all, keep the blue egger...

    Agree with the above on genders. I have to say, the color on the first pullet is unusual on an EE pullet, most of the time that colombian type color is male. She's a pretty thing [​IMG].

    Your blue egger rooster, if he is indeed pure for the blue egg gene, over your Marans will give you Olive eggers. Your Olive Egger rooster, over your Marans, may give you richer Olive, or you may get some dark brown. It's up to you how many chicks you want to hatch out [​IMG]
