Looking for that extra “pop” in your egg basket? We have two stunning lines of olive eggers that produce an olive egg a different shade of our Sage and Moss eggers. The combining all three breeds within a flock will bring a rich range of green into your daily egg collection.
Our first generation Olive eggers lean heavy on the Marans side of their genetics. Their body frame and feathering resembles the marans while their face holds the whisper of their Isbar influence. They come in both black and blue feather types and are laid back, large sweet girls and boys.
