Ameraucanas do not and should not lay olive colored eggs.

Easter Eggers may, of course, being that they're mutts.

The birds that lay "OLIVE" eggs, though, like this - Are a mutt with a dark egg laying parent and blue/green egg laying parent, such as Marans x Ameraucana. There's a whole thread on them.

The reason i said ameraucanas is because my cousin says he has some that lay olive eggs (i havnt seen them so they're probably EE's)

Bingo. Lots of people call their mutts Ameraucanas because hatcheries and feedstores tell them to.
