    What hatchery does everybody get those awesome Easter eggers that are blue and splash based. All my Easter eggers I’ve gotten from ideal are dark colors. I want an Easter egger that is blue based like the picture below. (I dont own this picture I got it off the internet.)

    Hmm, that's a good question. Mine are always much darker than the one pictured. :confused:
    Hopefully someone who has some will pop on here and let you know

    Try Cackle. They will also have various colors, but seem to have a higher % of blue tones, at least as shipped here. And I love their bantam EEs!

    In my case, buff ameraucana rooster * blue or black easter egger hens always produce buff or buff splash or splash.
