Our most colorful egg layer, Easter Eggers lay eggs in a variety of colors. Widely varied plumage color and patterns. Moderate layers.
Available at several different ages (see below). The hen in the photo shows how they look once they reach maturity.
Our Easter Eggers lay eggs in a variety of colors, which may include green, blue, pink, olive and brown. (Once a hen starts to lay, she will lay essentially the same color eggs her whole life, with colors possibly getting lighter as she gets older. But different hens will lay a variety of different colors.)
The chickens, themselves, are also colorful and have a variety of plumage patterns. They’re a favorite for young and old alike.
If you need a true Aracuana or Americana/Ameraucana for show, don’t get these—our Easter Egger pullets not show birds of either breed. Instead, they are a mix of various breeds that may have Araucana or Ameraucana in their background. Some have muffs, some do not.
They are moderate layers with some tendency toward broodiness.
How accurate is your sexing of Easter Egger pullets?
Easter Eggers are the hardest chicken breed to sex. When you buy them from hatcheries, they are the breed that has the highest sexing error rate. If you’re interested in finding out more, email me, and I can explain it.
Even with 12-week-old Easter Eggers, I can still make mistakes in knowing which ones are males or females. But if I do, I’ll make it right. It doesn’t help either of us if I ship you a cockerel when you were wanting a pullet, so if that happens, please let me know, and please be patient and we’ll get it straightened out.
