Easter Egger

$1.80$4.25

Easter Egger chickens are one of our most popular breeds.  Great for family-friendly flocks, these chickens are good layers of large colorful eggs that can range from olive green to turquoise blue and occasionally rose or brown.  Like their eggs, these chicks will grow into adult birds that vary widely in feather colors.  Easter Eggers are also extremely docile, and heat and cold hardy.  Though they are favored for their eggs, they are a dual purpose breed and are large enough to be used for meat.  Our Easter Eggers are a mix of bearded and non-bearded.

Our chicks have some Araucana and some Ameraucana breeding mixed and consequently are not for show but are beautiful chickens.

Description

Easter Egger (Ameraucana) chickens are one of our most popular breeds.  Ameraucanas were developed in the United States in the 1970’s.  They were bred using Araucana stocks brought to the U.S. in the 1930’s from South America where the Indians of the Arauca providence of northern Chile had domesticated them.  Ameraucanas were developed as a breed to produce green and blue eggs without having the disadvantages associated with breeding Araucanas.  From the diverse genetic pool, Ameraucana breeders have developed a breed which breeds true for many distinctive traits.  These varieties were admitted to the Standard in 1984: Black, Blue, Blue Wheaten, Brown Red, Buff, Silver, Wheaten and White.  To show them in exhibition shows, they must be selected and bred for the color varieties that have been admitted to the Standard.  Easter Eggers are excellent egg producers and large enough to be used for fowl meat when their use as layers is over.

Ameraucanas have now been selectively for specific colors.  The back is of medium length, broad, carried slightly elevated at the shoulders.  Chicks are multicolored with pea combs, beards, and muffs.  They have clean, slate gray legs and feet.  These crossbred birds will not breed true for shell color. Araucanas are characterized by having ear-tufts and by not having a tail-head. Ameraucanas have beards, muffs and tail heads and do not have tufts.

Our chicks have some Araucana and some Ameraucana breeding mixed and consequently are not for show but are beautiful chickens.
