Easter Eggers are not a breed per se, but a variety of chicken that does not conform to any breed standard but lays large eggs that vary in shade from blue to green to olive to aqua and sometimes even light brown/pinkish.
Easter Eggers vary widely in color and conformation, and are exceptionally friendly and hardy. Since they are usually quite friendly to children and humans in general, they are a great choice for a family flock. Most hatcheries mistakenly label their Easter Eggers as Ameraucanas or Araucanas (or various misspellings thereof).
True Ameraucanas and Araucanas are currently only available through breeders. Easter Eggers do not qualify to be shown, since they do not conform to a breed standard.
