Everyone at My Pet Chicken loves Easter Eggers! Eggs usually come in
shades of blue and green... including aqua, olive, sky blue, sage, mint,
turquoise and more. Rarer colors are tan, creme or beige. Children in
particular love gathering the fancifully colored eggs: it takes on the
atmosphere of a springtime egg hunt year round! Colored eggs are always a
more brilliant color early every laying season, and slowly
fade as the season progresses.People you share eggs with will be
astounded that these eggs are from chickens--or else it will look to
them as if you took the trouble to dye them all. However, your eggs will
be "colored by hen, not by man!"
These Easter Egger Bantams can
come in many colors and patterns. They feather
out into adult plumage that runs the spectrum of white, black, brown,
blue and various combinations. Our Easter Egger Bantams are not rumpless
Araucanas, but will have normal tails and pea combs. Most of these birds
will develop slate (blue) or willow (green) legs as they grow, although
this is not always apparent at first in young birds.
Easter Egger Bantams begin laying at seven months, a little later than other breeds, but once
they begin, they are good layers of eggs that vary in color, as explained above. (Each hen will lay her
personal color, however!) They will occasionally brood, but are not
particularly prone to it.
All 6-week-old chickens are shipped USPS Express Mail, and are
vaccinated for Marek's. We are unable to ship to Minnesota, Hawaii, and US Territories due to importing regulations in those states.
Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
