    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Thanks for your service to our country. I've ordered Easter Eggers from 4 different hatcheries over the years; Murray McMurray, Ideal Poultry, Dunlap Hatchery, and Cackle Hatchery and have been satisfied with the birds and service of all four of them. Keep in mind however that Easter Eggers (even though these hatcheries often market them incorrectly under the labes Ameraucana or Araucana) are not in fact purebreds but hybrids produced by crossing blue egg layers with brown egg layers to produce offspring that lay eggs in colors other than just blue. True Ameraucanas lay only blue eggs, and are fairly rare and expensive. Meyer Hatchery sells ture Ameraucanas in addition to their EEs but they charge 5 times as much for them as they do their EEs. I would suggest ordering from the hatchery that is closest to where you live so that the chicks do not have to travel as far in the mail. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
