Easter Eggers are fun crosses of our purebreds paired with first generation crosses. We are now offering a pale pink hue egg for the first time. Each egg you receive has the potential to hatch a pullet that will in turn lay an egg of different color.

Autosexing Olive Eggers: Golden Bielefelder x Cream Crested Legbar Olive Egger

Many offspring produced from Cream Crested Legbar imported to the US in 2010 developed warm tones in their feathering setting them apart from the imported pastel and gray toned Cream birds. These Legbar were established as a US variety, Golden Crele Legbar. They are currently housed with the Cream, offering a 50/50 chance of variety color. They retain their autosexing and colorful eggs, just look different than their Cream cousins.

About Lavender Ameraucana chickens

Lavender Ameraucana chickens lay lovely true blue eggs, have thick fluffy beards under their beaks, and muffs adorning their cheeks. A young visitor asked me once if they were part owl. We are currently keeping only pullets for OE/EE crosses due to an aggravating picking issue.

Golden Bielefelder

This dual purpose autosexing breed is an excellent choice for a homestead. They are curious and gentle, making them a good choice for farms with small children. By only five months of age, the roosters were by far the largest we have ever raised here on the mountain, and have never had an argument.
