The easter egger isn’t an officially recognized breed by the American Poultry Association, and is considered a mixed breed of chicken that descends from the same South American founder stock that produced the araucana and ameraucana breeds.

Unlike the araucana and ameraucana, easter egger hens do not consistently lay blue eggs, but lay eggs ranging in color from bluish to greenish.
