    I am looking for olive egger eggs - eggs that will hatch chicks that will actually lay a nice olive egg when they mature. I'm not sure exactly which generation but I think it's 2nd gen that lays a dark obvious olive egg and the birds will themselves lay olive eggs as well? I bought a cuckoo olive egger that lays brown eggs, no olive at all so I'm disappointed. I don't mind or chicks. Either one. Would prefer 8-10 eggs or so.

    Oh, and if you read the part in red it says you will receive blue eggs, but the chicks that hatch will lay green eggs.

    SilkieSensations is selling the most beautiful olive eggs that I have seen in a while. I have the light olive eggs she has the dark olive eggs. I have hatched both and they lay the olive eggs. Her eggs are 9.00 a dozen they are called rainbow layers well worth the money if you are interested in doing that. You could buy 2-3 dozen for the price of 9.00 a dozen. I did I loved the colors.
