All our hens are between 5-8 months old and just reaching their laying age. Hens can lay for up to 4-5 years before they stop all together. Hens need up to 14 hours of sunlight to lay. Artificial lighting can be added to keep hens laying through the winter months when the sunlight is less. Fun fact - hens are born with an exact number of eggs she will lay in her life time, so even if she stops laying through the winter months, that just means she will be laying that much longer before she stops.
Easter Egger chickens are our most popular kid pick! Great for family-friendly flocks, these chickens are good layers of colorful eggs that can range from olive green to turquoise blue and occasionally rose or brown. Like their eggs, these chicks will grow into adult birds that vary widely in feather colors. And if amazing feather and egg color wasn’t enough, Easter Eggers are also extremely docile, and heat and cold hardy. Though they are favored for their eggs, they are a dual purpose breed and are large enough to be used for meat.
Average mature weight: Roosters 5 lbs, Hens 4 lbs.
