    I know they are called Easter Eggers But if you have to order them from a hatchery what do you ask for?

    Most hatcheries advertise them (incorrectly) as Americanas, or Ameraucanas.

    sometimes they say that they are Aracaunas too, just go to any hatchery and if they don't have them listed and they do have 1 of the three mentioned then order those, they will be EEs. some like My Pet Chicken call them what they really are, EEs, if you want to get one of the three mentioned you would have to find a breeder.

    Ditto on the rest - They're sold in hatcheries as Americanas, Ameraucanas, and/or Araucanas. I'd just ask them for some Easter Eggers though. . Keep em on their feet. [​IMG]
