    I'm in southwest Missouri.. I'm looking for some Easter Egger or Ameraucana hens .. Also would like to find adult rooster from dark egg laying breed. And I'd love to get some Olive Eggers.

    I am expecting some to hatch on Mon April 4. Some of the eggs I put in the incubator were the olive green. I know how to check their wings for male/female. Let me know if you are interested. I have a few barred rock eggs in there as well. Ang

    dustysangel- you're about 30 miles away! What did you breed to the ameraucana (or easter eggers) to get the olive eggers?
    I have a couple ameraucana girls that should start laying any time.. I've been looking for an adult Marans or Welsummer roo to pair with them in hopes of creating olive egger chicks.. I'm a bit impatient... I actually have 3 little Marans roosters (7 weeks old).. guess I might have to wait on them to grow up..
    I have a handsome Ameraucana rooster available if I can find a Marans or Wellsummer roo to replace him (as the hen guardian).. I think he was in a breeding program for the wheaten color..

    Was just luck of the draw. I started off with a dozen chicks and some just lay the olive color egg. I put several colored eggs in the bator hoping they will lay same colored eggs.
