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. 

Weight

They are smaller sized for a standard chicken with roosters weighing around five pounds and hens weighing around 4 - 4.5 lbs. 

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. 

Egg Production

This line of Easter Eggers have been imported for from the Czech Republic. I imported this breed because of their prolific laying abilities and egg size. This breed will lay approximately 280 eggs per year. Egg size will be Large to X Large. 

Time to Maturity

Easter Egger chicks will begin laying around 20 weeks of age. Lay dates will vary on lighting and nutrition. 

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, the rest will be cream to light brown. 

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.
