    Do these really exist, I ordered 4 baby girls through my pet chicken pending their arrival the first week of June. I went to a heritage breed show the other day and was told that they dont exist.... is this true? I hope they exist because I dont have room for standard sized girls.

    Hatcheries have bantam Easter Eggers but they are not called Easter Eggers they are sold as either bantam Ameraucanas or bantam Araucanas. If they are coming from a hatchery they are EEs. Just like large fowl, chicks are bred for fertility and numbers not to any specific breed standard.
