    I was thinking of adding EE's to our flock for the egg colors. I was wondering if they are sold at most hatcheries or do you have to be lucky to come accross them in your area? My friends are making an order together, but I'm not sure which hatchery they are using. They are ordering RIR's and BO's. If I can locate a nice hatchery that sells all 3 of these types, maybe we could use them. Thanks for the help!

    Murray McMurray, Cackle, Ideal and others carry them! I got my Aracaunas (The breed they get EE's from) from Ideal and love them!

    I'll have to put a post here to see if anyone will be selling young EE hens in my area. Thanks for the suggestion, AHappyChick. Before I do, are you located near Port Jervis, NY?

    EEs are easy to find. It's the true Ameraucana breed and the Araucana breed that are hard to find.
