I've only had ONE "Easter-Egger"...a GOOD Chicken.
So....I certainly wouldn't know.
BUT...either way....
appears to be good chickens.
You'll find-out soon enough....
....AND, IF you have ONE of EACH....TRUE AMERACAUNAS....
THAT is GREAT !
( in my opinion )
MORE good chickens for you ! ( IF you keep Roosters.)
I HOPE YOU get what YOU want !

It was a cockerel and a hen and I can't have a roster and would not want to keep him to breed with his sister(yuck) so took him back to the breeder and he traded me for a hen. The breeder has great birds and is wonderful to work with so I got lucky!

It's Good that YOU got what YOU wanted.
( BUT...ONE cross Brother-to-Sister...is NOT "yuck".)
SMILING....:D ;)

P.S. "In-Breeding" ...in Chickens....is NOT necessarily a "BAD" thing. Don't think of them as HUMANS.....you'll miss the point of it all, IF you do...... "Out-Breeding" is ALSO IMPORTANT.

Agreed! Chickens aren't quite like other animals in that respect...they don't start turning out deformed chicks if they mate with a sibling or parent bird and many a breed has been saved by line breeding.
