Redwood Olive is our homebred olive egger. These strains are a cross between two pure breeds, each strain selectively bred for maximum laying ability.
Thankfully many people are enjoying 'growing their own' and keep a few good laying hens for your own fresh egg supply. These would make a good choice for this purpose.
The Redwood Olive come in 2 colours, either a mixed brown or a very light. They are cold weather hardy and will live for 3- 5 years.
Eggs: Approx 280 a year
