The Easter Egger derives from the Araucana which has South American Origins. The Easter Egger Bantam is a miniature size of the Easter Egger standard size. The chicks we breed donot meet breeding standards of the true Araucana or Ameraucana.
These unique chickens have mixed colors in their feathering. No two chicks look alike. They look like chipmunks because they have beards around their beaks, muffs, and heads. The Easter Egger Bantam has clean legs as well. The most fun thing about this breed is their egg color. The Easter Egger is known to lay blue, green, or brownish pink eggs. With this you could really have green eggs and ham!
The Easter Egger Bantam easily adapts to the environment that they are put in. They are hardy birds but will do well in any environment. This breed also seems to be broody at time as well. The Easter Egger Bantam is known for being lively and festive. They make excellent pets.
