Description

Olive egger refers to any chicken that has a combination of blue and brown egg genetics, so they can come in many different colors, sizes, and feather types!  F1 olive eggers have one parent with 2 copies of the blue egg gene, and the other parent has 2 copies of the brown egg gene.  At Buckaboo Farm we offer 2 types of F1 crosses: Legbar x Welsummer, or Legbar x Black Copper Marans.  These girls almost always lay green eggs.  The specific shade depends on the breed of the parents, and ours tend to be a nice deep shade of green with beautiful speckles. The Legbar x BCM are black, sometimes with copper hackles, while the Legbar x Welsummer look like cream legbars, but just a little darker.  Both tend to inherit the head poof from the legbar.  Since Legbar x BCM are sexable at hatch, the straight run baby olive eggers will be Legbar x Welsummer. Please note that if you want super dark olives you should get a back cross.  You can read about them here.

Please make sure to do your research before bringing home baby chicks.  0-3 week old babies should be kept inside in a brooder, with heat from a plate or lamp.  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.
