Diversify your coop and your egg basket with the new Wheaten Olive Egger! This fourth-generation hybrid will consistently lay beautiful, medium to large olive eggs while sporting the eye-catching wheaten feather color pattern. Please note, there is a 1/64 chance of a tan egg. These beauties also pass on their feather attributes over multiple generations, should you decide to keep male and female Wheaten Olive Eggers together. Males will show some beautiful black feathering beginning around 6 weeks old and females will be mostly cream and brown. They are a cold-hardy cross that have straight or pea combs and may or may not have feathered legs.
The color Blue Wheaten does not breed true. The chicks hatched from blue parents can be Blue Wheaten, Black Wheaten (Wheaten), or Splash Wheaten. You will receive hatchery choice colors when ordering. Read more about blue genetics in our Help Desk Article.
