1Very Limited Availability
Brand new, and exclusively ours! Our Snowy Easter Eggers will lay various shades of blue or green eggs in a large size. Occasionally other colors are produced, but most will lay blue and green. (Each individual hen will lay a consistent color.) In their second year, many Easter Eggers even lay extra large eggs! EEs can go broody, but are not excessively so. They are usually bearded and tend to have slate or willow (blue or green) legs. They are friendly, and great favorites of children, who love to gather colored eggs.
This is a white variety of Easter Egger, some with subtle splashes of color. If you prefer different feather colors, you may choose the regular Easter Egger or Blue Easter Egger.
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 also super friendly, active foragers, and cold hardy. However they are not always the best winter layers as they get older. Speckled Sussex and Welsummers would be a great varieties to keep with Snowy EEs to add winter laying to your flock; their personalities are compatible, and you would be adding light brown eggs from the Sussex, and dark chocolate eggs (occasionally with darker speckles) from the Wellies. Talk about a gorgeous flock and egg basket! You'll be the envy of all your chicken friends.
