    Fertile Black Copper Marans AND Olive Egger eggs available!

    $20 a dozen for local pick-up OR shipped (add $12).

    The Olive Eggers include a first generation cross (AmeraucanaXBCM) that will lay olive eggs. They also include Olive Egger hens bred back to a BCM and should produce darker olive and some dark brown eggs. Fun!

    I'm happy to mix and match eggs. It is possible, but unlikely, to get an Olive Egger from the Black Copper Marans eggs.

    Thanks for looking!

    Hi, I would love some olive eggs, however is there any chance that your hens will still be laying closer to October?
    Thanks

    Eggs will be available in October and we'll be hatching chicks starting around February!

    Hi,

    I'm in N Florida- how do you think the eggs would survive the trip? Have you shipped that far before? I got some fertile eggs shipped from Georgia and had a pretty good hatch rate from those.

    Thanks

    Hi Stephanie. I think they would be fine as long as they were treated well during shipping. I've shipped to CA and eggs have hatched and I've gotten eggs from Texas and had eggs hatch. Shipping is always risking, as is hatching, though.

    Sometimes I have extra pullets. I definitely have chicks, but they're sold straight run.
