Easter Eggers

Pros: sweet, funny, pretty feathers and eggs, and fluffy beards
Cons: none!
Farm stores usually sell "Ameraucanas" but really they're Easter Eggers. And I'm not complaining! Easter Eggers are a mixed breed so they come in such a variety of colors and patterns and have such sweet and funny personalities. My EE's lay mint green eggs everyday and sit on my lap for cuddles. One even wanders through my house looking for treats. They are a perfect family chicken especially for kids! Just got 2 more cause I love em so much.
Pros: They are so sweet, and calm.
Cons: They don't lay in winter.
I haven't had chickens for very long, but I love the Easter Eggers
Pros: Great layer
docile
Cons: non
I love my sweet easter egger! After she started laying, she became very friendly and is one of the best layers in the coop. She almost lasted all winter laying! (Live in desert) Everyone needs an easter egger in there flock :)

Pros: Personality, egg color
I love getting Easter eggers. When they are chicks, you never know what you're gonna get. Their coloring changes so much over the duration of feathering. I love having blue eggs in my carton. They can sometimes be the class clown in a flock! Super friendly!

Pros: Variety of Colors both the birds because of the mixed breed and the eggs coming in blues, greens, pinks and browns. . Docile and great pets when raised from chicks.
Cons: I need some acreage to keep up for my love of these girls!
My Easter Eggers have given me a beautiful variety of chickens in different colors not to mention the variety of egg color that comes with them. I get blue, blue/green and pink! They are docile enough for my 4 year old daughter to pick up. If you aren't worried about your birds being purebreds, these are wonderful backyard chickens!
Pros: Calm and friendly. I don’t handle my chickens a lot and they are still friendly and curious about everything I am doing.
Cons: Can’t think of any.

Pros: Sweet, curious, funny
Cons: Can be aloof
We currently have 6 easter eggers. Four of them are friendly and curious and very sweet. Two are more aloof and don't want attention. I love the different colored eggs. We have pale mint green, light blue green, pink, tan and light green eggs from the EEs.
Update, I have 2 more EE pullets that started laying, one is a small light blue egg and the other is a large olive egg. ☺

Pros: Pullet/Hen is good to all others in the flock
Friendly
Great Egg Production
Cons: Cockerel gets meaner over time
Cockerel rough on smaller chickens
We had purchased week old Easter Egger "pullets" (sold as Americauna!) the mid april. They were much more skittish than our like aged White Leghorns or Isa Browns. About 3 months in it became evident that one of the pullets was a cockerel. We decided to keep it anyway.
The Leghorns and Isa Browns were laying at 16/17 weeks, and our skittish EE pullet got bullied by the Isa Browns for 3 months until she finally laid a pink egg. It was worth it. She became calmer and friendlier overnight, ascended the pecking order right away, and lays 7 large eggs in 8 days, like clockwork 4on 1off 3on 1off. Cold Hardy and doesn't effect her productivity.
As for the cockerel, we kept him and he mostly had been doing a great job as far as warning and protection to the flock. I also notice every egg I get is fertile. But, his first problem, as a young cockerel, ripped a leghorns crown mounting her. The leghorns hate him, and he is persistent and doesn't give up, no dance and not gentile. His last problem, at 9 months, he is getting aggressive with the family. I have a few 3 week old easter egger cockerels, 1 will be ready to replace him.

Pros: Pretty colored eggs, friendly, great layers
Cons: Can be noisy when wanting treats!
I have a wide variety of breeds in my flock. The oldest are my 5 Easter Egger gals. They're hardy, handle extreme heat AND cold, lay faithfully, forage well, and are very calm. Two of them are the bosses of the entire flock, but they don't bully any of my less assertive breeds like my Polish and Cochin.
Pros: Clucks rarely, lays good, friendly toward me and other chickens
Cons: NONE
I have had Easter Eggers for 3 years and by far they are awesome. I love the pattern that is in mine's fur, and they are pretty to look at. I highly recommend Easter Eggers.
Pros: Blue and green eggs. Good layers, smart, friendly, strong big birds.
Cons: Can be loners
I love my EE. One especially is very submissive. They have good personalities. My EE rooster is great friendly and sweet.

Pros: Beautiful egg color, jumps on my lap
I love my easter egger so much! She is the friendliest of my entire flock, jumps on my shoulders and lap while I am in the backyard, and squawks like a pro to let me know she's laying an egg. She is also the top of the pecking order and sort of a protector of our flock. I love this breed.

Pros: Small, friendly, smart, cute, and curious
Cons: Can be skittish
We have 2 Easter Eggers who are rather small for 21 weeks old, but perhaps that makes them more cute and lovable. One has always been skittish despite handling since she was tiny, but they all have their own little personalities! They have the cutest beards and are pretty curious and quiet little birds. They'd make a great addition to any backyard flock.

Pros: beautiful eggs, personable
Cons: not as "friendly" as my other birds
I got 5 chicks in the spring and the EEs have been laying for about a month now (they're 27 weeks old). They are already consistent layers of beautiful blue-green eggs. I'm getting 5-6 per week for each pullet. One is quite friendly but the other is very skittery, although she always comes to talk to me. I love them both and they're quite the characters. Beautiful birds too!
Pros: Friendly, docile, good at raising chicks
Cons: Many different egg colors and you never know what you're going to get till they're old enough to lay, and I might just be my flock but they're very broody in my case..
Easter Eggers are my favorite breed and my love I have 10 of them they're loving friendly docile Birds. My first girl Hawk so far has hatched out and raised 15 chicks! I love this "Breed" they are the mutts of the chicken world and always lovely looking! <3 when my EEs are not Mothering Chicks i get eggs every day for 5days then they seem to skip one day

Pros: Super friendly. Great with bantams. Love socialization. Beautiful colors.
Cons: Hmmmm.... NONE!
Easter Eggers are so sweet! My 4 EEs love to hop up on my lap, head, shoulder, or any other place they can get to. They also do great with my one Silkie. They treat her nicely and don't peck her. They also have super pretty coloring. Each EE is different! You CAN NOT go wrong with an EE!
