Flowery Easter Egger

A Flowery Easter Egger hen looks inquisitively at the camera while standing in a green pasture.

Another wonderful My Pet Chicken designer cross! Selected for extreme hardiness, large blue-green eggs, and gorgeous feathering. Due to breed genetics, ninety-four percent of Flowery Easter Eggers will lay a blue-green egg, and the remaining six percent will lay a light brown egg. Plumage color will vary, but will often be blue or have a blue undercoat beneath glossy coppery feathers--some speckled--and often fluffy faces with small crests and feathered legs, too. Regardless of their appearance, they're good brooders and mothers. Some may have modified pea combs.
