Should be 7 birds total and I beleive its all straight run. I think I'd like at least one rooster to watch the girls and I love the look of the roosters.


They lay a blue color egg. Easter Eggers are crossbreeds between an Araucana or Ameracauna with another breed.

If they are coming from a feed store, they are Easter Eggers and not true Araucanas. EEs are hybrids produced by crossing blue egg layers with brown egg layers to produce offspring that lay eggs in some color other than just blue (most commonly in shades of green).

Can't wait to see that photo.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

Yep, he's a Salmon Faverolles rooster. Great breed; very friendly and gentle and good layers.
