    What about shamos and somatras and I think cornish game birds all have pea combs? I've never heard of one of them laying a blue egg.

    The pea comb to blue egg link is basically for blue egg layers; doesn't refer to pea combed birds. Refers to blue egg layers.

    Ok, guess it wouldn't hurt to change the subject.,,, so guys and gals, my pullets aren't laying and i would love to see some colorful eggs! It would be awesome to see some pictures of some olive eggs from your hens! And even cooler if you would make the best estimate of what parents created your olive eggers! This will be fun as well as educational! Let's get back to talking about olive eggers and showing some cool egg pictures!

    At what age did your Olive Eggers start laying? Mine are Ameraucana x Marans, any ideas or experiences?

    Thanks

    yes please more pics, I am wating for my girls to start laying, but my breeders were a bcm hen hatched from eggs from greenfire farms and the rooster is a blue ameraucana from my own lines, the eggs are a nice blue color from the ameraucanas and the egg color from the bcma is outstanding, if I dont get the color eggs I want, I will take the henns back to a bcm rooster and see what I end up with then

    My two OE pullets from Monique have grown up and are beautiful. I'm patiently waiting on eggs now... hopefully before we get into the coldest winter months they'll give me a beautiful green egg. [​IMG]

    This is one of the two Wheaten chicks hatched by my broody Ameraucana hen, luckily both chicks she hatched turned out to be pullets! [​IMG]

    The Wheaties are adorable as youngins.
