Easter Egger chickens, which are often referred to as Ameraucana chickens, are a mixed breed that is derived directly from the Araucana breed. Over the years, this particular type of chicken has grown in popularity due to the blue and green-tinted eggs that they produce and the excitement that goes along with such colors. Chickens for Backyards couldn’t be any happier to provide these unique chicks for sale, as you and your family will undoubtedly have so much fun collecting eggs laid by the so-called “Easter Egg Chicken”.
Easter Egger chickens are, in general, very friendly and active. They are also relatively small in size and will only grow to be about 4 or 5 pounds when they mature, which makes them easy to handle. Easter Egger chickens do well in many different climates but are particularly cold-weather hardy, allowing them to thrive in any season regardless of whether you choose to raise them in a free-range setting or a small coop. Additionally, no two Easter Egger chickens are identical in appearance.
As you can imagine, Easter Egger chickens are most attractive for their unique egg colors. The eggs that these chickens lay will typically be either blue or green, depending upon the bird, and are usually medium in size. Regardless of whether you choose to keep the eggs for your table or sell them at a local farmers market, there’s just something about these unique-colored eggs that add excitement to any carton!
NOTE: The Easter Egger breed is known for having an inherent genetic beak issue. As they grow the chicks may develop scissor beak/cross beak. This means that the top and bottom beak do not align and normally gets worse as the chicken ages. The severity of this genetic issue differs and normally happens in 1 out of every 100 chicks.
