Description:

Don't have the time, equipment or inclination to care for chicks? Or are you  just too anxious for some fresh eggs? Our This is the tickets! At 6-7 weeks old, these started pullets are ready to go outdoors, with no heat or special care requirements.

Green Queens are super layers of large, green eggs*. This is a multi-generational, multi-breed cross we have been working on for some time to produce a large, easygoing, extremely hardy, prolific egg layer. Most will be bearded; some will have lightly feathered feet and some will even have five toes! Its plumage color will vary, frequently blue, black and white, and sometimes even barred.

Easter Eggers are loved for their sweet personalities, hardiness in both the heat and cold, and for their large eggs in all different shades of green and blue (a small percentage even lay a light pinkish brown color!). This is why they've topped the best-seller list every single year since we started selling chicks in 2007.

We love EEs for the backyard flock because they don't tend to be aggressive with one another like some breeds can be (Rhode Island Reds, we're looking at you!). They're super friendly, active foragers, and cold hardy. In their second year and beyond, Easter Eggers are known to lay extra large eggs. They rarely can go broody, but are not excessively so. Easter Eggers are usually bearded and tend to have slate or willow (blue or green) legs. They are friendly, and favorites of children, who love their easygoing personalities and to gather colored eggs.

*Please note that while Easter Eggers chiefly lay blue or green eggs, a small percentage will lay another egg color, including tinted, brown or even pinkish. Each hen will give ONE egg color.The egg color will not change from one egg being laid to another. For example, if your hen has just laid a green egg, it will lay a green egg its entire life.

All Started Pullets are shipped USPS Express Mail.

**Please do not immediately turn your started pullets out with an existing flock. Read why, here.

These pullets will be vaccinated for Marek's disease and will be 6 weeks old when shipped.
