Easter Eggers, also known as Ameraucana chickens, are named for the green and blue colored eggs they lay. Looking for eggs from Ameraucana chickens makes every day an Easter Egg hunt. Like the eggs, Ameraucana chickens are very colorful, with varying feathers of gold, white, brown, black and tan. Their smaller size, about 4 to 5 pounds as adults, makes them easier to manage and their gentle personalities make it easy to find eggs. Ameraucana chickens get along well with other chickens and can be added to a mixed flock.
NOTE: The Easter Egger breed is known for having an inherent genetic beak issue. As they grow the chicks may develop scissor beak/cross beak. This means that the top and bottom beak do not align and normally gets worse as the chicken ages. The severity of this genetic issue differs and normally happens in 1 out of every 100 chicks.
