You Asked~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And what is an Easter Egger you ask?

An easter egger chicken is not any specific breed ~ to maybe its a chicken "mutt".  As the hens grow the feathers on each one will vary ~ most will average 6-7 pounds.

They will lay about 4 xtra large eggs per week ~  and the egg colors will be blue, pink, green, or multicolored.....hence the name.

I got my information for this chicken lesson from

Now ya know! 

(When the co op said they were getting them, I looked them up, after I saw the egg colors I knew we needed some!)


  1. oh, they sound cute! and colored eggs, can't beat that. the more you know.

  2. Well, you learn something new every day! We have a lady at church that swears that green eggs are the best! I don't know about that, but it does sound like fun.
