Pros: Sweet, Entertaining, Easy, Consistent Layera
I started out with Easter Eggers and quickly found out why they are a favorite for beginners and homes with children. I know the statistics say Silkies are the friendliest, but I think my Easter Eggers are exceptionally friendly. They are free roaming and still let us pet them pick them up, hand feed them and will even follow us in the house if we aren't careful. My silkies only let me pick them up if they are in the coop. Also my EEs eggs are a little larger than a medium egg and more than often have double yokes which is kinda neat. And then there is the colors... light greens, olive greens, light blues, pinks... so much fun! Love my EEs!
