These birds are excellent layers and produce eggs that range from olive green to turquoise blue. This hardy breed was developed in the U.S. in the 1970's using Araucana birds from South America. Like their eggs, Easter Eggers come in a variety of colors. They are favored for their eggs, but are large enough to be used for meat.
IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION: Meyer Hatchery offers started pullets in limited quantities for shipping or for pick up in Ohio. We recommend placing your order early in the season for best selection. If you are picking up your started layers, we will send you a confirmation of the pick-up date and directions. Don’t forget to bring a box or other container for transportation from the hatchery to their new home.
We can also ship started birds directly to your local post office. Meyer Hatchery will pack and ship the birds in an approved USPS shipping container, include a gel supplement to keep your birds hydrated in transit, and ship them express for overnight delivery to most locations.
Started pullets are approximately 16-20 weeks of age. They are fully vaccinated, beak trimmed, floor raised, treated for intestinal worms, and ready to move into your laying barn. A non-refundable $1 per bird deposit, ($20 minimum) is required and due at the time the order is booked.
Due to conditions beyond our control; such as feed, environment or lighting, we are unable to guarantee the production rate and/or start of production of these birds.
