Easter Egger Chicken
An Easter Egger is any chicken that possesses the "blue egg" gene, but doesn't fully meet any breed description as defined in the American Poultry Association's (APA) standards. The name derives from the resemblance of their colorful eggs to Easter eggs. The Araucana, Ameraucana, and Easter Egger are descended from the same founder stock that spread around the world from Chile and the Falklands.The majority of chickens in laying flocks that lay blue or green eggs are Easter Eggers. Commonly exhibiting muffs and beards, they generally resemble Ameraucanas. The color of Easter Eggers is particularly variable, and they appear in a great number of patterns.
Resistant to cold, good Egg layers of Large Green, Blue or Tinted (pink) Eggs. Easter Eggers are generally docile, friendly and make great pets. It's always fun when non-chicken folk see a beautiful green chicken egg for the first time and say, "Green?! Green eggs? I didn't know chickens could lay green eggs!"
In most climates these Easter Egger hens will lay one blue/green egg per day all year round. You
can breed Easter Eggers with other breeds to create hybrids. This is why the Easter Eggers are
considered the mutts of the chickens, but however are the most sought after chicken.
The blue/green egg gene is dominate, meaning when you breed the Easter Eggers with other
breeds of chickens, their offspring will produce blue/green eggs.
