    Hi I had some one ask me to incubate some of their eggs for them. Wanted to know if I could tell them what they would get from these crosses!

    They have: A Black Copper Maran Rooster
    Cuckoo Maran Hens that lay a nice Very Dark Egg.
    Rhode Island Red Hens
    Ameraucana Hens – Pastel Blue eggs.

    From what I have heard they should get “Olive Eggers” from the Ameraucana X Black Copper Maran.

    Anyone know what the other crosses might be like!

    The BCM rooster x Cuckoo marans hens will be mixed-color marans.

    The BCMxRIR will be mutts.

    The BCMxAmeraucanas are still mutts, but the coined term for them is OliveEggers.
