Are olive-green eggs what you need? Then Townline’s own cross between first-generation Cuckoo Maran males with first-generation Americana hens will fill your need. Enjoy the egg shades of olive and green the majority of the time, with a scattering of lighter shades like brown or even pink.
“Olive Eggers” can be produced using several different combinations of colored egg layers and very dark brown egg layers. Townline’s Olive Eggers are a cross between 1st generation Americana’s and Cuckoo Marans, resulting with hatched chicks that will predominantly lay varying shades of green from sage to olive – though there is potential for some to lay other colors too. The wide spectrum of colors will certainly provide diverse colors in your egg basket!
