    Shelby is 20 weeks. Looks like she'll lay soon to me (1/2 Wheaten Marans and 1/2 EE or Ameraucana) What do you think? Found out that she and her EE sister, Maretta, can fly like nobody's business when I put them in the main coop. They looked at each other this morning after spending one night in that coop with Isaac and the laying flock and just sailed effortlessly over the fence. [​IMG]

    Shelby is 1/2 Wheaten Marans and 1/2 EE or BW Ameraucana (both type hens were in the pen), so yes, I expect she'll be an Olive Egger. Maretta is an EE, not an Olive Egger. [​IMG]

    I'm looking for some olive eggers that are not going to be black. Is there anyone that has hatching eggs?
