Getting to Know… Easter Eggers

Last week I introduced our Black Copper Maran chickens. When we purchased them last year we got the Easter Eggers at the same time. Easter Eggers are like the mutts of the chicken world. They are not seen as a pure bred chicken and are not recognized by the American Poultry Association. People often get them confused with Americanas. Easter eggers come in many different colors. So even chicks that are hatched from the same mom can look vastly different from their siblings. Although as a whole they generally have a fluffy collar and in most cases ornate markings. Easter Eggers also lay colorful eggs! They can be blue, green, brown, and sometimes pink. All three of our Easter Eggers lay green eggs.
