    Has anyone got pictures of their Olive Eggs? Anyone crossed a Marans with an Ameracauna and have the offspring's eggs? I am really curious what they will look like! Thanks!

    Do a search, there are some really good pictures on here somewhere... Maybe it's MaransGuy (?) that has the great eggers.

    I am working on barred olive eggers, so they can be sexed at birth and cut raising/production cost in half. Right now, raising/production cost is about quadrupled, but once I set the barring gene, and get mostly bearded, and olive, which I plan to do all this spring, it should be easy sailing after that. I have her in with a CBM right now, hoping for some "golden cuckoo" type barred EE's too!
