A few months ago we picked up 2 olive egger chicks and one maran chick.
But now as I’m looking at one of our olive egger chicks I’m seeing she looks like a barred rock. She hasn’t started laying yet so I don’t know. But I was really hoping for olive eggs.
Is it possible for her to look like a barred rock and still be an olive egger?
So my question is from the pictures do you suspect barred rock or olive egger?
I hope the breeder didn’t make a mistake. But I love her none the less.

Does the breeder breed barred Plymouth Rocks? If not, then I would say olive egger.
Yes he had barred rock chicks available in the same hatch lol
But then I was wondering if he used a barred rock hen/roo to create an olive egger chick and it took on the feather pattern of one parent. ‍♀

Barred rock in my opinion. What type of Maran did you get? I have a friend who's cuckoo Maran looks just like a barred rock when she was young She doesn't look like an olive Egger but I've had to olive acres before that looked nothing like what I expected but laid the coolest olive eggs. I've always heard with all of Eggers you're really chancing it because of how their bred. I don't really know but that's what I've heard
