    I picked up this little cutie yesterday she/he is only 2 days old & she's the cutest little thing. I love her colors!! I'm wondering if anyone has every had a chick this color what it ended up looking like full grown .. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hard to say because olive eggers are crosses so we don't know what the parents are. Did you see the parents?

    ETA It's ridiculously cute, though! [​IMG]

    We'll make sure you post progress pics. It almost looks like a gold laced chick but I can't imagine a OE cross that would result in that.
