Exclusively ours at Feather Lover Farms! Our new F2 & F3 Lavender Olive Eggers are a new designer cross breed we have created that have both the popular Lavender colored feathering and dark green/olive eggs! Only hand selected show quality birds were used to create this cross, these are not the typical hatchery stock chickens.
We spent about 3 years creating our new Lavender Olive Eggers and used only show quality lavender colored Marans and shoq quality lavender olored Ameraucana chickens to make this cross and then bred back to marans2 to 3 generations to create the dark olive green eggs. The chicks you would receive from us will breed true to the lavender color. The chicks you receive from us will be F2 and F3 generation chicks and their eggs they will produce are a beautful deep olive color like the egg photo shown above. Breeding lavender blue eggers to lavender dark chocolate eggers and then back to the dark chocolate eggers helped create this new beautiful lavender olive egger breed.
Some of the chicks will be pea combed and some will be single combed and many of the chicks have feathered feet and legs! They also may have ear muffs, beards or puffy cheeks! These are one of the sweetest and most docile chickens on our farm and are incredibly hardy in cold or hot weather. We know you'll fall in love with your new Lavender Olive Egger chickens as well as their dark olive green eggs!
*Please note that though all of our breeders lay dark olive eggs, there is a small chance a chick you receive can grow up to lay blue, brown or lighter colored olive eggs due to their genetic background.

Shipping: You will receive an automatic email and text message when your chicks ship along with tracking info. Chicks usually arrive in the morning 1-2 days later and your local Post Office will call you for pickup. Chicks are never delivered to your home address, even if you used a home address for your shipping address.
What I Need:Everything you need can usually be purchased at your local feed store. Chick starter feed, waterer, brooder (cardboard box, plastic storage bin, bathtub, or even a kiddie pool are popular), pine shavings, thermometer and a heat lamp or heat source. Baby chicks require heat of about 95 degrees their first week of life. Second week you can lower the temperature to 90 degrees and so on with every week going down 5 degrees until 6-8 weeks old or when they are ready to go "outside".
How Do My Chicks Survive Shipment?:Baby chicks do not need food or water for the first 72 hours of life. Ingesting their yolk sac gives them the nutrition they need to survive the journey from Feather Lover Farm's hatching facility to you! Shipping day-old chicks helps ensure a safe arrival since they will usually be just 2 days old when you receive them. Our packaging is professional with a brand new chick shipping box, nesting material and warm long lasting heat packs depending on the time of the year. Your chicks will look like they just hatched out of a nest when you open the box and jump into your arms, thinking you are their mother hen!
