What are EEs?

post #5 of 37

EEs are Easter Eggers, called so because they most often lay green or bluish eggs, occasionally pink or brown. I don't know of a hatchery that sells them bantam sized. (Hatcheries sell them as Ameraucanas and all its misspellings, but they are not true Ameraucanas. Those you can only get from a reliable breeder.)

Dutch bantam. Small, lay eggs pretty well for a banty, come in lots of different colors.... or maybe columbian bantam, though they are bigger than dutch.

I'd go with Modern Game bantams. Mine are really sweet and easy to tame for shows, and they usually come right up to me. Here's my little old man, Napoleon, and his ladies, Paprika & Minnie:

Almost every big hatchery sells the bantam EE. Mine are from Ideal.

It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
