Easter Egger Chicken Hen

Easter Eggers are sweet, docile and, as their name implies, they lay colorful eggs. Why wouldn’t you want at least a few Easter Eggers in your flock? This breed has a pea comb, and is very cold hardy.

Production: Easter Eggers are good layers laying 200-280 medium to large sized light brown, green, blue, or pink eggs a year. The Easter Eggers skin color is white. Hens are broody. 

Temperament: These are sweet birds and are not usually aggressive.

History: There is a great deal of misinformation about Easter Eggers, in some cases from sources you would expect to be reliable. Some hatcheries mislabel these birds as Ameraucanas or Araucanas, or other variations on those spellings.

Easter Eggers are not a recognized standard breed. They do not conform to any standard, so they don’t always look the same. 

They are not recognized by the American Poultry Association or the American Bantam Association, so they are not shown in competitions. Instead, they are happy birds that lay funny colored eggs. They make a great addition to backyard flocks.
