We currently have first and second generation Olive Eggers. First generation hens are Blue and Black Copper Marans x Welsummer. The cross has plenty of hybrid vigor and these hens are great layers of large dark eggs. The egg color of the F1 hen is dark brown and these hens are bred to a Wheaten Ameraucana rooster carrying the blue egg gene to produce olive colored eggs. These olive egg laying hens are covered by a Splash Copper Marans Rooster to produce even darker olive eggs. As with all colored eggs the color is variable according to the egg cycle of the hen. The eggs shown are some of the peak colored eggs of Olive Eggers.
