    An olive egger chicken has the blue egg gene and the brown egg gene which produce an olive green colored egg.

    Earl, would you please post that photo. As we can enlarge a posted photo, but not an avatar photo. I predominantly use my phone and not a computer so this would be very helpful for me. Thanks in advance! :)
