    Olive Eggers and Marans are great! I've got both, but my OE hasn't started laying as of yet. [​IMG]

    It's a variety of breeds who give us pretty eggs: dark chocolate brown - Black Copper Marans, darker brown eggs - Blue Splash Marans and Welsummer, light brown - anywhere from Wyandotte, Orpington, Rhode Island Red, Speckled Sussex, to Rock and Australorp and too many to name, various shades of green - Easter Egger and Mallard duck, blue - Cream Legbar, Easter Egger, and true Ameraucana, bright white - Golden Campine, Silver Spangled Hamburg, Black Sumatra, and Sicilian Buttercup, off white - various ducks. Those aren't all our breeds, but they're the main ones! [​IMG]

    Do u chickens all free range together or do u separate by breed? I plan on doing that when I receive my marans and OE cause I don't want them getting mixed with each other or JG as I plan on selling chicks :)

    They all are housed and free-ranged together as one big, happy flock! [​IMG] I understand separating them, though, if you're going to be breeding. I guess we haven't really done that because the purpose for our girls is just as pets and for our own personal enjoyment. So I take it you're getting straight run chicks just to get some roosters in the mix?
