    My Olive Eggers are once again laying and laying like crazy so I'm offering a dozen eggs for $55 to include shipping. The pics below are the actual eggs that will go out on Monday. I can fill two orders on Monday and possibly take additional orders after that.

    Some eggs are very dark olive, some speckled, and some appear grey because they have a light grey powder coating over the olive egg. All are from offspring of a blue EE hen and a pure Black Copper Marans roo.

    Offspring vary in looks with most looking like a blue copper marans and others looking like a pure black copper and yet others are solid black - some have muffs/some don't.

    I've been selling these eggs for $100 per dozen but since it's winter and the market's down I'm offering a special. If they don't sell, I will hatch them and I sell the chicks for $12 each. I will wrap and heavily insulate the shipping box.

    Here's a few pics that show the last batch of eggs - with better lighting. But I do have a lot more laying now and some are laying the beautiful speckled eggs.

    Was curious, who do you sell these eggs too?

    I knew a guy who had a mixed batch of hens who laid olive eggs, but I didn't know there was a market for them (even for mixes).

    Quote:I've sold them to people here on BYC as well as auctions on EggBid. There's always a market for "unique" and different.
