    Easter Eggers, or if you want the pure breed, Auraucana or Ameracaucanas..each a little different, you would have to go to a breeder for the last 2, EE's come from hatcheries.

    Blue, green, olive and all shade in between!

    I also have an Olive Egger that I got from halo's eggs, but so far she's only laid two eggs.
