Easter Egger Question

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by McCord6, Sep 13, 2009.

  1. Hubby and I emailed our egg provider and asked him if all the blue eggs are EEs and he said YES, ALL OF THEM.
    I was told by Hubby's step mom and EEs are "pain in the butts" and mostly are aggressive and hard to keep up with.
    My question is: how are EEs personalities normally?

    I have true Ameraucanas and EEs. They are quiet, mind their own business, lay very well.

    Never heard of anyone having any problems with them! Hence why I have them in the bator now. And the 3 girls I've had for a week are super sweet, terrified of me but sweet.

    The only time an Ameraucana around here is aggressive is when she is chasing away the other girls so I'll pick her up and carry her around like a doll. She'll let me do that for hours, if I would.

    Our EE's are the sweetest birds ever!! And they also lay HUGE, beautiful blue eggs. These chicks are the ones I sell the most of in the spring.

    We have one that would let us hold her all day also!!!!!! [​IMG]
