DESCRIPTION

As you might suspect, Easter Egger chickens get their name from the colorful eggs they lay. They are descended from multiple chicken breeds and, as a result, come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. A great chicken for beginners, this chicken variety is one of the most popular in the U.S because of their colored eggs and low maintenance requirements. Standard size is most popular, but bantam-sized Easter Eggers are also available.

Weight

They are smaller sized for a standard chicken with roosters weighing around five pounds and hens weighing around four pounds.

Good for

Easter Eggers are great egg layers. They tolerate all types of climates making them versatile for any region.

Temperament

Calm, docile, and friendly... they are good around children and people in general. For that reason, they are a great choice for a flock. Owing to their mild disposition, more aggressive breeds may pick on them.

Egg Production

You can expect approximately four large eggs per week or 250 to 270 eggs per year from each bird.

Time to Maturity

Easter Egger chicks will reach maturity and start laying eggs at seven months. Although that's later than many other breeds, once they begin they produce a good volume of large, and even extra-large, eggs.

Breed FAQs

What are Easter Egger chickens?

Easter Egger chickens are simply a variety of chicken, but not a breed of chicken. They do not conform to any breed standard defined by the American Poultry Association.

What color eggs do Easter Eggers lay?

Oocyanin, a pigment, is deposited on the surface of their shells accounting for the blue-green egg color. Although 90 percent of eggs will be blue or green, they can also be olive, pink, sage, turquoise, and other colors. In fact, Easter Eggers are sometimes referred to as a Rainbow layer.

What is the difference between an Ameraucana and an Easter Egger?

Although people often mistake Ameraucana chickens for Easter Egger chickens, the reality is that they are distinctly different breeds. Ameraucanas are a purebred chicken and have the same characteristics across the entire breed. Their eggs are only blue. Easter Egger chickens are a hybrid breed coming from multiple chicken breeds. They can lay blue legs, but, unlike Ameraucanas, can also lay green, brown or light pink eggs. A chicken will only lay one color egg and not multiple colors.

Availability

Easter Eggers are for sale starting mid-July and available through the middle of December. They would make a nice Christmas present for a child looking for their first pet chicken!
