Due to their mixed heritage, these chickens display charming appearances. These delightful birds can exhibit a variety of feather colors, including shades of light to dark brown, black, gray, or blue.
Pros: One of Olive Eggers’ main attractions is their olive, sage, or khaki green eggs, which add a touch of novelty and can be a conversation starter. Cons: Olive Eggers are not recognized as a standardized breed, which means their appearance and egg-laying abilities can vary significantly depending on the parent breeds.
