Mareks Vaccinated Females


Opal olive egger backcrosses are the result of 3 generations of breeding opal legbars with other colored layers, and they look very much like a true opal legbar (not exactly, but close and very pretty!).  The main difference is that these backcrosses will lay more unique and interesting shades of greens and blues, in a broader range of shading than the true opal legbars.  You could end up with brighter greens and blues, or speckled olive!  These birds are absolutely beautiful, with light salmon shading on their chests, silvery blue on the rest of their bodies, and subtle barring.  The backcross opals have maintained that awesome legbar trait of being sexable at hatch, so we can get you tiny baby girls for this breed!  The lavender plumage gene that causes the lighter color is recessive, and it requires extra care in order to keep the feathers of the birds healthy.  For this reason, opal colored birds cost a little bit more than our other olive eggers.

All of our chicks are vaccinated for Mareks soon after they hatch!  If you do not know how to care for chickens please do your research before ordering!  We have lots of information on our Chicken Keepers Guide page, and will be adding chicken keeping courses on our Online Chicken Keeping Courses page as we release them.

Please note that this product will be marked as in stock when we believe we will have some available within the next couple of months.  We do not have a waitlist for these birds, but feel free to reach out if you have questions.
