Easter greetings to you all from Mrs Gillybirds and her girls!
Bet you didn’t know there is actually a variety of laying hen called “Easter Eggers”. They are not a breed per se, but a variety of chicken that does not conform to any breed standard but lays large to extra large eggs that vary in shade from blue to green to olive to aqua and sometimes even pinkish. Easter Eggers vary widely in colour and conformation, and are exceptionally friendly and hardy, making great family pet hens.
