The Easter Egger chickens are great chickens for backyards, homesteads, farms, schools, almost in any situation really. They are typically friendly and hardy making them a great choice for a family flock.  In the flock hierarchy they are in the middle so can do well with all birds. They do great in all weather conditions and can tolerate the harsh weather of Vermont. We would say they are very adaptable. They lay a great amount of eggs over the year and can be considered a table bird based on their size – so this would be considered a dual purpose bird. Our roosters are very large.

Our breeding program objectives for the “Easter Egger” chicken is  to produce chickens with a wide variety of feather colors, patterns, high egg production, and of course, colorful egg shells.  This is a work always in progress so egg color is not guaranteed . Our egg colors range from beautiful blues to tan or pinkish. We use Easter Eggers, Super Blue Egg Layers (Whiting True Blues, Cream Legbars) and Amerucanas to produce our offspring.

History

The “Easter Egger” chicken originally came from Chile in South America, discovered by the Araucana Indians, which is really the Araucana Chicken.  They are not a breed – but a variety of chicken that doesn’t conform to any standard, which is totally ok because they are just a all around great chicken! We would say they are one of the most popular chickens. The true Araucana chicken is rumpless (tailless) , has a small curling tuft of feathers next to each ear and come in different pure color types. The Easter Egger chicken is different because they have a full beard under the beak rather than a tuft and have a tail rather than rumpless and don’t have pure color types (sometimes no tuft or beard). The color of their egg shells vary from pale blue to to various shades of green and light brownish/pink eggs.
