Several months back I bred my Easter egger rooster to my black maran and my heritage reds. The first part of the experiment was to see if older refrigerator eggs would hatch or not well 23 out of 24 eggs hatched one wasn't fertile so that worked and the eggs were from a day old to 3 weeks old! So I hatched my little mutts then decided to try the wing feather test to see what's a roo or a hen I banded all the roosters and maybe it was luck but I got all that right. Well I had to many birds so I have them all away except one maran ee hen mix and one red ee hen mix. The red mix actually turned out to be a white hen. In the hopes of getting an olive egger today I finally got the first egg from my maran ee hen and it's indeed an olive egg!!! My red ee hen hasn't laid I don't think if she has it was a dark brown maran looking egg but I don't think that was hers I'll keep y'all posted!!
