Can anyone explain in simple terms some of the basics of olive Eggers genetics? More specifically, what generations or crosses are most likely to create the highest chance of olive eggs? I thought that F1 olive Eggers (dark egg x blue egg) would always produce green/olive eggs, although perhaps on the light side. To get a darker green you breed the F1 back to a dark egg layer. But I thought this cross has some chance of creating a brown layer instead of olive. Then I read this and now I’m all confused. From mypetchicken.com: “Though the plumage on this cross varies, 95% of our Olive Eggers will lay an olive-shade egg, varying from lighter olive to very dark "army green." For genetics lovers, the reason for that is our flock is a combination of F1s and F2s. F1s have a 1/16th chance of laying a brown egg instead of an olive egg, and F2s have nearly a 100% chance of laying olive eggs.” And what can the results be of crossing olive Egger with olive egger? Always olive or all different colours? TIA!!
