- Easter eggers question

Pros: Beautiful, lays green/blue eggs, good layers
Recommended? YesI have two EEs and they are always first to be noticed. Dottie has a muff and is pale in color but her sister (Lady) has no muff and is a rich vibrant color.Dottie lays a pale green egg and Lady lays a blue/green egg.
Both are friendly and docile. I'm getting 2.2 oz size eggs almost every day.
The only draw back I see (if you call it one) is that if you really love a particular coloring or feathering it could be very hard to breed them to get it again.
Recommended? YesWe have one Easter Egger hen and one rooster (I think). Along with 4 Ameracuana hens.(also a couple other breeds and turkeys) We love our Easter Egger. She is friendly and will happily sit on your lap. As others have noted she doesn't care to be carried around but will let you pet her as much as you want. We have raised her from a 3 day old chick and have never had a problem. She is also friendly with all our other chickens and turkeys. She isn't laying yet so I can't speak to that but I am anticipating that she will lay well. We aren't raising chicks so that isn't an issue for us. I'd say don't hesitate!
