Americana (Easter Egger)
Easter Eggers (EEs) are not an APA recognized breed, they are a mix of different breeds. They are sometimes referred to as 'Rainbow Layers.' Easter Eggers are essentially descendants of Araucanas and Ameraucanas on one side of the family, and any other breed on the other side of the family. Easter Eggers do not breed true. To 'breed true' means that purebred chicks resemble both parents.
According to the Easter Egg Club of America, EEs are "the most popular chicken in America today."* Easter Eggers lay a wide range of egg colors, including: any hue of blue and green and even pink on occasion. Other common EE traits include pea combs and wattles that are either small or absent. They often have greenish legs and beards and muffs, but not necessarily. They can have any skin color. Their leg color can range from green to slate and even yellow. They can be found in an infinite array of feather colors, which makes them a beautiful and unique.

I ordered 12 eggs and received 13. They were nicely and securely packaged. They were pretty clean, but I gave them a quick washing anyway. I let they rest for 2 days before putting them in the incubator. As of this morning, I have 10 baby Easter eggers in the incubator. YEAH!
