    Hey EE owners!! [​IMG]

    I'm thinking about getting some EE's. I would really like to know more about them!

    I'm also bouncing off the walls with excitement! [​IMG]

    Where can I get some EE's? Can I order them from the internet or maybe some one is selling them?

    And also, post LOTS of pictures!!

    Thank you!

    Easter Egger chickens are cross-bred birds originating from a blue egg layer. Your stereotypical EE is pea combed, bearded, and green legged. They are known for laying olive, blue, or brown eggs. Often times they are very good layers and overall sweet birds [​IMG]

    Is there a hatchery that has EE's in stock?

    I had an EE but sadly had to give her away. She would bully my BO anytime there were treats around. But that was my only compliant about her. She was friendly in that she would eat out of my hand but did not like to be picked up or held. She was a bit on the skiddish side. But she was a PRODUCER. We got a green egg from her 13 out of 14 days. And they were beautiful eggs.

    Would love to have another one for the eggs. But since I can only have four hens, I'm more drawn to the docile, affectionate types like the Orpingtons, who like to be held.
