Easter Egger chickens are our most popular kid pick! Great for family-friendly flocks, these chickens are good layers of colorful eggs that can range from olive green to turquoise blue and occasionally rose or brown. Like their eggs, these chicks will grow into adult birds that vary widely in feather colors. And if amazing feather and egg color wasn’t enough, Easter Eggers are also extremely docile, and heat and cold hardy. Though they are favored for their eggs, they are a dual-purpose breed and are large enough to be used for meat. Meyer Hatchery Easter Eggers typically feature a beautiful muff/beard, but can occasionally be clean-faced and lay 4-6 colorful eggs per week. Meyer Hatchery's Easter Eggers do breed true.
Average mature weight: Roosters 5 lbs, Hens 4 lbs. Also available in a bantam variety.
