EASTER EGGERS: Though not considered an actual breed, our EE's are culls from our Pure Ameraucana. Culls because they do not meet all the requirements to be considered "pure" Ameraucana. Our EE's lay blue to green to pink or light beige eggs. Some have beards, some have muffs, some are tailless, some with slate colored legs, but not all the features in a single bird, to be considered "pure". Our EE's carry blue and laced genetics. They are friendly, lay a fair amount of colored eggs and cockerel's reach a good table weight.
These are excellent for Public and Home-school hatching projects, since the eggs are different colors, and no two chicks will be exactly alike.
There is a great deal of confusion over the Ameraucana and Easter Egger. It is a very controversial topic. To qualify as pure, they must lay blue eggs, have pea combs, slate/green legs, a tail, beard and muff and reproduce *true* 50% of the time. You will rarely if ever purchase pure AM from a hatchery or feed store. They are EE. The only way you can be assured of pure is to purchase from a reputable breeder and even breeders cannot guarantee the offspring will lay only blue eggs. NOTE: As the hens age, the eggs do fade in color, so what may have started as a very blue egg layer, will fade with age to a much lighter shade of blue. Because we no longer wish to deal with the controversy of AM/EE, we call all of our pure Ameracauna's, Easter Eggers and you may receive any and all colors of eggs in the dozen.
