Easter Egger

    Easter Egger
    True-breeding Easter Eggers are only widely available in the USA, though so hugely popular there that maybe they will spread to other parts of the world soon! However, technically any blue- or green- laying hen that isn't recognised as a standard of another breed like an Araucana or Ameraucana is an Easter Egger, whether it's an F1 hybrid with a non-blue layer or from a consistently blue-laying strain. Very variable in colour, but often muffed or bearded. Saddle hackles appear on males at about 9 weeks.
