Easter Egger Started Pullet Easter Egger Pullet
Product Features:Currently not available
Description:Started pullets are for people who
don't have the time, equipment or ability to care for chicks, or who are
just too anxious for some fresh backyard eggs to start with chicks!
Easter Eggers are one of our favorites. They are friendly, great layers of large
eggs. Please note that while they chiefly lay blue or green eggs, they
may (rarely) lay any egg color, including tinted, white, brown or even
pinkish eggs. Their smaller body size makes them good in the heat, and
their small pea comb means they do well in cold, too, because they are
not as susceptible to frostbite. (They are often not especially good
winter layers, though.) "Easter Eggers" are hybrids that carry the
blue-egg gene. We like to think that the pea comb is linked not only to
the blue egg laying gene, but also to the "sweetness" gene, as well.
Because this is a hybrid variety (not a breed), even if you have a whole
flock of them, you can often tell them apart because they come in so
many different colors - which isn't always possible with other breeds.
All 6-week-old chickens are shipped USPS Express Mail, and are vaccinated for Marek's and MG (killed). Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
