Easter Egger Information
Easter Eggers are best known for their blue/green eggs, however they have lots going for them as backyard chickens. Compared to other blue/green egg layers such as purebred Araucanas these easter eggers produce far more eggs and are known to be hardier.
Members of the Easter Egger family have been in high demand across Australia in recent years as they have much to offer. Although these birds look a lot like their Araucana cousins, they are bred specifically for Australian conditions. In most climates these Easter Egger hens will lay one blue/green egg per day all year round. Pure Easter Eggers are known for a long lifespan and will lay for almost all of their lives. Easter Eggers are best known for their blue/green eggs and are still quite rare. Easter Eggers are highly recommended and make a great addition to any backyard flock.
