- Each hatch is unique regarding hatch rate and there are too many outside factors to consider and not every egg may start growth even if your eggs were picked up.
- A small fertile blastoderm in the egg may look infertile after a short time in the incubator. The blastoderm may die early in the incubation process or eggs may have been damaged during transit. Therefore, cracking the eggs during or after the incubation process in order to determine fertility is not going to be give you a precise ratio of fertile to infertile eggs.

- We have been breeding Olive Eggers for many years now. The hens and roosters look a lot like Marans now, but they tend to have pea combs some of them may also have feather legs.
- The Olive Egger chick will probably look a lot like a Black Copper Marans chick when they hatch.
- The Olive Eggers chickens can be either black or blue in colour and they may or may not have the copper colouring of the Marans.
- We let our Olive Egger hens' free range with our Marans flock year-round.
- Our hens always lay an olive or moss coloured large eggs. The Olive Egger eggs, and the hens are similar in size to our Marans.
- Egg color varies by each individual bird, by the time of the year, diet, health, lighting and management (free-range on green pasture vs. confinement). They are not always super dark olive colouring eggs as the colour is applied to the outside of the egg the same way it is with the Marans chicken egg.
