    This is our newest Rooster, Oscar. Is there a way to tell if he is a true olive egger?[​IMG]

    Not without breeding him, no. There's no way to tell what egg color genes he carries aside from that, unless you know his parentage, of course. He's a pretty boy regardless!

    Ok, thank you! The girl we purchased him from said that he was hatched from an olive egg.
